Role description and tasks

Secondly, you are heavily involved in continuous improvement of the Threat Hunting service, and our Endpoint Detection and Response service. You contribute to, advise on, and in many cases write up (improved) Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and runbooks for the teams involved in operational threat hunting. In case of incidents (after initial triage and dispatch), you may be referred to and contribute to the actual threat hunting as the Subject Matter Expert (SME) supporting the 2nd and 3rd line responders.
