You are responsible for helping clients to overcome their security incidents. To do so, you will go on site and help the client getting back to business as quick as possible.
As an incident Responder there is not such as a typical day. Our emergency centre calls in case of an incident at an organization. After the first triage, you go to the client site with a specific formed team. The CERT cases with forensic equipment are ready to go and within 4 hours you are on-site. You work until late in the evening. The customer has indeed been hacked. Accounts have been compromised and customer data got stolen. In the following days, you’ll help plug the leaks, secure the evidence, and file the appropriate report. You also determine which security measures suit the customer best and make sure the client is back to business as quick as possible. The police are pursuing the matter further and benefit from the evidence you collected. And the client can breathe again!
This is an example of how a day could possibly turn out, but as an Incident Responder no day is the same. You are responsible for helping clients overcome their security incidents, that (obviously) always happen unexpected. When no incidents are taking place, you improve the way of working of the CERT or you help other teams.
The CERT consists of Incident Responders, Incident Response Coordinators and the CERT Manager. When going on site helping an organization, a case specific team is formed. Sometimes team members from other teams are asked to help because of their specific expertise. The team is, such as all the other teams within Northwave, always focused on further developing their techniques and processes. The knowledge about digital threats gained during incidents is also shared within other teams within Northwave. Our clients are mainly located in The Netherlands and Germany, but we also work for clients in Belgium, Switzerland and other European countries.
