Lockheed Martin CIRT operates from a global network of Security Intelligence Centers. Each SIC strengthens Lockheed Martin’s intelligence-driven computer network defense and ability to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving and persistent threats in cyber space. The primary role of each SIC is to reinforce the company’s detection, identification and response to information security incidents, and to develop and expand an elite, cyber workforce. 

Primary responsibilities for this entry level position include leveraging security data from internal sensors (IDS, routers, SIMS, firewalls, hosts) and external sources (Industry portals, the DoD, US-CERT, partners, etc) to implement effective mitigations through the review of security event data for threat and potential attack activity. 

Duties and tasks to be performed include, but are not limited to: 
-Incident handling (guiding customers, directing resources through intelligence-based response process)
-Forensic analysis (analysis of compromised machines)
-Development of thorough incident reports

-Maintaining technical proficiency in the use of tools, techniques and countermeasures

SIC Analysts must be able to obtain and maintain a DoD Secret level security clearance.

This is a fast paced, challenging position where high performance and quick ramp-up is expected. The ability and willingness to support and meet tight deadlines on a continual basis, while staying focused on policies and procedures will produce successful results. The ability to performance effectively and efficiently, both independently and as a member of a diverse virtual team is most valued.
