Job Posting Number: 34936BR
Job Posting Title: Senior Manager - Threat Intelligence
Job Posting Category: Administration/Management , Business Professional , Engineering/Architecture , Information Technology
Work Site: MN - Rochester
Department: Information Security
Job Description
Just like all organizations, Mayo Clinic is under constant attack by advanced adversaries. Rather than continue to simply respond to alerts, Mayo Clinic is building a threat intelligence program to proactively identify likely threats to our enterprise. The Senior Manager for Threat Intelligence will be charged with developing and maintaining a high level vision for the program.
The threat intelligence program will make heavy use of data mining and artificial intelligence technologies to perform predictive identification of probable threats. The program will also seek to cluster known attacks with the ultimate goal of identifying previously unknown relationships between attacks. Attacker attribution is another key goal of the program. Because not everyone shares your passion for (or understanding of) raw data, you will be charged with developing reporting and visualization programs to ensure that mere mortals can take action on the data.
A successful candidate will have experience with data mining and visualization technologies. The candidate will have briefing skills and be comfortable managing heterogeneous teams. Ideally, the candidate will also have experience with attack attribution, cyber analytics, and adversary research. This role is critical in ensuring that Mayo Clinic is not only the best in healthcare delivery but also in protecting our patients, our data, and our brand.
