This position is responsible for collecting and analyzing open source information via social media and third-party platforms to evaluate threats that may impact the client’s business operations, physical locations, employees, and reputation.

The ideal candidate must have a high degree of analytic ability, resourcefulness and drive, critical thinking skills, and exposure to tactical and operational security.
