  • Familiarity with common threats and issues related to security vulnerabilities, e.g., credential phishing, internal data spillage events, and inadvertent data leaks.

Desired Skills

  • Previous experience with SalesforceCRM security, administration or development.

  • Prior experience in a large and complex organisation, operating across numerous locations and with a high degree of change.

  • Experience reproducing proof of concept exploitation steps.

  • Experience judging the priority of a vulnerability based on risk and impact.

  • Experience securing applications and infrastructure in Amazon Web Services and similar IaaS / PaaS platforms.

  • Deep application security knowledge, with the ability to map an application vulnerability to exploitation indications and relevant investigative techniques.
