Incident Response and Digital Forensics specialist

Data breach? Cyber attack? Security breach? After an event like that, our clients are often at a loss. Until you show up to help them: our new Incident Response and Digital Forensic Specialist.

Allow us to introduce ourselves

Computest celebrates its 17th anniversary this year Having originally started out as a group of friends, the company now numbers 100 specialists. Besides providing support for digital transitions at our blue-chip clients through our specialist consultants, another specialisation is advising and delivering (recurring) services security, risk, governance and compliancy within our Computest Security business unit. We won’t go on at length about our past exploits to convince you to join us. But we do have plenty of stories to tell! For instance, about how our hackers managed to penetrate Volkswagen's infotainment system, or our portfolio of leading clients, large and small. Or about how we found a vulnerability in Zoom, which won us an award and made international headlines.

Does that sound good to you and would you like to get involved? Then read on!

What you will be doing

  • Providing support following a data breach, cyber attack, security breach or other (serious) incident
  • Detective work! How did the attacker get in? What was the target? And what data did they manage to get hold of? That means analyses, deep dives into log files, reconstructing timelines of attacks, creating images and rolling out tooling
  • Collecting evidence and securing necessary systems
  • Investigating how to bring those systems back online safely and securely
  • Working on various projects to make sure subsequent incidents are handled even better – obviously there isn’t always an emergency to be dealt with
  • Advising the customer on which security measures to take.
  • Taking turns to be available on-call.
