BreachQuest is your trusted partner when your business has been compromised. Our team of former NSA, DoD, and US Cyber Command operators can respond immediately with an unparalleled capability to deliver best-in-class incident response, regardless of where you are located.
We're expanding, and are looking for a motivated and analytical consultant to help level up our recovery & remediation team. Our RR teams provide 24/7 threat monitoring and real-time threat intelligence, detect fraud, sabotage, malicious conduct, and security breaches. Our ideal candidate can deploy various technical, analytical, and legal tactics, while simultaneously owning BreachQuest's client-first values.
