The Principal Tech Lead - Global Security Incident Response is a senior technical security position that plays a pivotal role in security risk management across EA. The role focuses on coordinating and leading all cyber security related incidents across EA to closure. These security incidents include but are not limited to malware, insider threats, DDoS, ransomware, intellectual property leakage and unauthorized access.
During incidents, you’ll coordinate with partners such as Games teams, Information Technology, Legal, our EA Digital platform team and other business units to gather incident details, assess impact, and coordinate EA’s response. You’ll be responsible for all aspects of security incident response, including operational IR related work, incident response program oversight, and reporting/communications globally to ensure all stakeholders/partners are in alignment and executives are kept informed. The role is also responsible for monitoring the performance of open security incident tickets across EA to ensure a proportionate response, compliance with existing laws and regulations, and alignment of the Global IR Team with emerging threats and incident trends.
As this is a lead position, you’ll lead by example and set the pace and work ethic of the Global IR team and all Security Operations Centre (SOC) analysts involved in security incident response. It is important for you to be a strong communicator, as you must ensure that all interactions with Security leadership and business stakeholders are clear and consistent, even in times of crisis.
Ensuring that Global IR Team and the SOC staff have the correct training, education and security playbooks to work from is imperative to the success of this position. The IR Lead will also be responsible for managing and further enhancing the IR process itself.
