Technical Writer & Editor – III

Website FarfieldSystems Farfield Systems, Inc

Farfield Systems delivers solutions and services in data storage, network engineering, cybersecurity, and informatics.

Farfield will assist the Federal staff within the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Agency (CISA) Hunt and Incident Response Team (HIRT), and National Cybersecurity and Assessment and Technical Services (NCATS) branches, with a broad set of support functions. The Hunt and Incident Response Team is DHS’s front line when responding to cyber incidents and proactively hunting for malicious cyber activity. HIRT leverages world-class expertise to lead response, containment, remediation, and asset recovery efforts with its constituents and partners. HIRT provides two primary functions to its customer. First, HIRT serves as DHS’s primary operations arm in the execution of the asset response mission delegated to DHS. When any civilian Government agency or critical asset owner operator experiences a cyber-attack, HIRT can provide remote and onsite advanced technical assistance. Second, HIRT also can be called upon to proactively identify malicious activity, otherwise known as a “hunt”, specifically focusing on identifying threats from sophisticated threat actors that are often undetected, and in situations beyond the capacity and capability of traditional cyber security tools and techniques.
