“As a Security Analyst, I provide our customers the information to mitigate and protect their businesses. We’re going further than just helping them understand the risks they are exposed to, I feel like we are giving them ways to actually improve their security too.”

Security Analyst for VulnDB

My first job in the security industry was behind the support desk. After getting my certification I started looking for the next step in developing my career. I knew I wanted to stretch myself, and that I wanted to be more hands on with the research and the product.

When I saw the position at Risk Based Security, I knew that this was perfect. As a Security Analyst, I provide our customers the information to mitigate and protect their businesses. We’re going further than just helping them understand the risks they are exposed to, I feel like we are giving them ways to actually improve their security too.

As well as helping customers, Risk Based Security is also helping me learn more about the inner workings of security. There are so many different aspects to security that I never would have known about if I had stayed in a “normal” company. Every day is a challenge, but for good reasons. I’m constantly obtaining more knowledge and I still have a lot to learn.

The people here are cool and laid back and I don’t feel like a number. The office ambiance and atmosphere is great. At Risk Based Security I get the flexibility I need to do great work.

For anyone who is unsure about joining the security industry, or about joining Risk Based Security, do it. You will be pleasantly surprised. Go for it.
