About the Role

The Coalition Security team is comprised of bright minds across many cybersecurity domains, with expertise in Red Teaming, Threat Intelligence, Cyber Risk Management and Defensive Security Controls. In the Security Analyst role, your mandate is to help advise our policyholders on how to protect their business from cyber threats.  As a part of this mandate, you might find yourself analyzing data breaches and claims events, conducting client security gap analysis, or advising prospective policyholders on how and why they should remediate a tricky security finding.
