Capital One is looking for a Senior Associate to join our Cyber Security Log Management team. This team is responsible for enabling comprehensive cyber monitoring. We ensure standard log events are generated across Capital One so our threat defenders have the right visibility for investigations and alerts. We achieve our mission by setting security logging strategy & requirements and influencing enterprise technology teams to deliver.

What You'll Do:

  • Lead and communicate the enterprise security logging strategy in partnership with engineering and architecture teams, Cyber Operations teams (ex. Cyber Security Operations Center, Hunt, Insider Threat) , and other stakeholders

  • Maintain close ties with Cyber Operations teams, ensuring the right events are captured and logged

  • Drive enterprise teams to adhere to logging requirements in terms of standard schemas, design, log transportation deployments, and log validation.

  • You have the ability to foster collaborative, open, working relationships with technology groups and other stakeholders, sharing customer and engineering benefits for security logging to gain buy-in
