Join the team
FSA is an exciting and fast-growing cybersecurity company headquartered in San Diego! Our interns are training to become cybersecurity analysts, which are a vital part of our team. You’ll gain more experience in 3 months than an average analyst will in a whole year!
Interns will be working from a Security Operations Center analyzing attacker behavior and methodologies, for either a 6-month or 12-month internship. You’ll be trained to search for anomalies and data breaches. When suspicious behavior is detected, you will research, verify, and document the incidents. These are then communicated to the IT department and direction is provided on remediation. This position has a unique schedule, with 12-hour shifts. This schedule would mean 3 days on/4 days off, then 4 days on/3 days off for alternating weeks. Two shifts are available:
Shift A: 12AM — 12PM
Shift B: 12PM — 12AM
We are looking for candidates that like to work in a team environment and that know how to communicate and document well. Candidates should be trustworthy, honest, moral and focused on doing what is best for the client. We need self-motivated professionals; we are a team of A-players only and we look forward to expanding that team.
