Incident Response and Digital Forensics specialist

Do you want to be the lifesaver after a cyberattack, data leakage or other digital breach? Do you like to investigate the most advanced malware types in the wild? Join us and become Incident Response and Digital Forensics specialist at Computest!

Computest celebrates its 17th birthday today, it started with a small group of friends, but quickly grew to over 100 specialists. Computest provides midsize companies to large enterprises with security, risk, governance, and compliance services. We do a lot of awesome stuff, we recently hacked the Volkswagen infotainment system and won the Pwn2Own contest for hacking Zoom which made it to the international press.

We are a challenger of the ‘big-four’, but we like to differentiate ourselves by focusing on knowledge, and quality. We don’t like bureaucracy and endless (online) meetings, which are terribly inefficient, we rather discuss during a match of ping-pong.

You still like what you’re reading? The most awesome stuff is yet to come.

What you can expect from us

If you’re working with us, you’re important to us. We offer great working conditions and special benefits such as a laptop, phone, internet subscription compensation and a fancy car. We like to commit; therefore, we offer a permanent contract after the probation period of 2 months. We value personal development, specialism and would like to see you excel in what you like.

Next to working, we also like to have fun. When the corona restrictions will be lifted, we can’t wait to organize drinks, diners and go on ski holiday with the whole company!

We are flexible in working hours and remote working, but sometimes you’ll probably want to come to the office some days to make sure your arcade game skills are still on point, as we do have our own game room.

Education and personal development

The world of cyber security develops quickly, and because we want to remain the reliable and quirky specialist, we want you to grow and develop as a person at that same speed. Together we’ll work out a personal development plan, see which courses and or certifications match these goals, and make sure you’ll reach those goals.

We also like internal knowledge sharing, often we organize pizza & beer evenings where we or you can share something awesome with the rest of the team!

What you can expect from the job

As Incident Response and Digital Forensics specialist you’re the fireman for cyber incidents. Each challenge is unique and offers a fast learning environment. Your role with a highly skilled team is to dive deep into the technical aspects and forensics regarding data leakages, cyber-attacks, or any other form of digital-related breach.

Together with a coordinator, you will be required to offer both on-site and remote help and advice to Computest clients. During such events you be collecting digital evidence (from workstations, servers and network traffic), identify attack vectors and chain of infection, perform the overall forensics and trace back the attack timeline. To finish, you will report the findings and asses the measures for recovery.

Each case to solve is a new adventure, all companies are unalike and every incident is different. One day you might investigate a single endpoint from a local store and the next one might be involving over 10.000 endpoints at a large conglomerate.

Both come with their own challenges and make this job dynamic and above all, very fun to do!
