Accenture Endpoint Security Implementation Manager - location negotiable in Jefferson City, Missouri
Accenture is a global collective of innovators whose aim is to improve the way the world works and lives. Empowered with innovative tools, continuous learning and a global community of diverse talent, we drive success in new business architecture that disrupts conventional practices. And we are looking to add an experienced Endpoint Security Implementation Manager to an already outstanding team.
Accenture Security helps organizations prepare, protect, detect, respond to, and recover, at all points of the security lifecycle. We hire the very best security talent and arm them with the coolest tools and latest tech so they can help our clients build resilience as we create integrated, customized turnkey solutions. We blend risk strategy, digital identity, cyber defense, application security and managed service solutions to rethink the entire security lifecycle.
You Are passionate about security, love what you do and have a genuine desire to outsmart the bad guys. You have the experience to analyze a clients’ security posture, anticipate security requirements and help find right-sized solutions based on industry leading practices. You have a proven track record working successfully in a fast-paced, agile environment. You’re a creative, analytical problem solver with above average documentation skills who can speak to both technical and non-technical audiences. You are eager to put your skills to use by helping us help our clients inject security at every level of their organization.
The successful candidate will have a team-oriented, client-facing mindset with proven experience conducting EDR infrastructure deployment. You’ll function as an endpoint technical SME and will manage and skill-up both onshore and offshore deployment teams. You will be known for your business acumen working with clients and helping them to identify risks, propose recommendations, and execute remediation in their endpoint security program.
You will help clients identify high impact threat scenarios and execute proof of concepts for prevention, detection, and response using customized endpoint security architectures. You’ll use your deep insights to identify, recommend and execute resolution for malware and other EDR-detected incidents while helping to develop and execute methodologies for EDR deployment, feature enablement and technical integration in a SOC.
No client or project will be the same. One day will find you designing architectures across AV, Next Gen AV and EDR, and the next you’ll be threat hunting, leveraging EDR, analytics and other security capabilities in order to solve pressing client challenges. You will present the value proposition, plan, and status of your work to executive stakeholders, such as CIOs and CISOs. You will lead integration of EDR into SecOps platforms like SIEM, SOAR and ITSM, and will lead development of EDR configuration and operational guides. You will own delivery end-to-end and ultimately be accountable for what you and your team produces. If you have the desire, you’ll work as a technical lead on some of these projects.
