Cigna Red Team Senior Manager in St. Louis, Missouri

Red Team Lead

A successful Red Team Senior Manager should possess a deep understanding of both information security and computer science and have experience leading a team of highly technical teams, such as offensive operators, penetration testers, etc. They should understand advanced Red Team concepts such as performing covert operations against complex networks while remaining entirely undetected, advanced application manipulation, and basic programming concepts. They should be able to improve the overall detection and response capabilities of the organization by understanding TTPs, developing engagements that emulate specific TTPs and engaging with the Blue Team during and post engagement.

Red Team managers are the lead project managers for all offensive engagements. This includes scoping prospective engagements, managing team metrics, establishing team goals and objectives, conducting performance reviews and 1 on 1 meetings, obtaining and scheduling resources for projects, managing multiple projects from kickoff to completion, and delivering out-briefs. Managers are vital to the project lifecycle and must be able to deliver successful projects with little to no oversight.

At Cigna, you’ll be working and managing some of the best experts in the industry and faced with complex problem-solving opportunities daily. We help protect some of the most sensitive and valuable data for millions of members throughout the world and red teaming is critical to validating our global security posture. You are expected to quickly assimilate new information as you will face new environments across the globe on a regular basis. You will be expected to understand the relevant threat vectors to each environment and properly assess them, engage with Threat Intel for the latest TTP, work with Hunt and Incident Response to develop engagements and effectively communicate the results of engagements. You will get to work with and manage some of the best red teamers in the industry, causing you to develop new skills as you progress through your career.

The objective doesn’t end at gaining “domain admin” or “root” but through the successful completion of the engagement objectives and our ultimate mission of improving security as a result of red teaming. You will be expected to work closely with the blue team in both red and purple team engagements. As the Red Team manager, your success will be partially measured not only by how well you can evade the blue team but by how well you can demonstrate improving the blue team.
