What You'll Be Doing…

Its goal is to provide and ensure that proper security controls are protecting against risk across all businesses within the group. The successful candidate will be part of the Red Team and will have the opportunity to use technical skills and knowledge to simulate malicious actors activities with the purpose of identifying new vulnerabilities and contribute to PPB overall security posture.

The Red Team Engineer acts as a proactive Security Team member, combining an offensive mindset with a defensive goal. They design and execute real cyber-attacks against multiple targets with the purpose of achieving pre-defined goals. They also prepare technical and business oriented reports describing the red teams exercises, their results and mitigation recommendations. These are easily understood by technical and non-technical teams and have different format and content according to the stakeholders. Finally, they support technical teams in the mitigation procedures, helping them to understand the identified vulnerabilities, to design the best solutions and to validate their resilience against cyber-attacks.

The role involves a collaborative approach with multiple teams, dominating attacking techniques against different technologies and IT domains, and writing professional reports. Documenting the infrastructure is also an important part of the role, as all gathered information can be useful to other teams and future exercises.
