You will support enterprise-wide, end-to-end Zero Trust architecture projects involving cutting-edge technologies and concepts, including cloud technologies, enterprise identity, microservices, containers, encryption, tokenization, AI, ML, SIEM, SOAR, and threat modeling. You will help consult on Zero Trust security technologies, tools, and techniques and communicate the complexities of security with a wide variety of audiences, including senior management.
