Allegiant Security Operations Team leverages security operations skills coupled with automation expertise to improve the overall security posture of the enterprise. Identify security vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and improvements, and then use automation to improve the security operations tooling. Additionally help automate detective controls finding indicators of compromise and enhancing those detections into our operations infrastructure as code (IaC). The SOAR Lead should have an attacker mindset and utilize tools, techniques, and processes that emulate those of skilled and motivated adversaries. A lead may have additional responsibilities such as managing projects, setting technical standards and guidelines, providing technical direction to the team, and collaborating with other departments to ensure the success of the organization's security operations. They may also be responsible for developing and implementing strategies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations, and for identifying opportunities to automate additional security processes beyond SOAR engineering.
