About the Role:
CrowdStrike's Strategic Advisory Services team assists our customers with a wide array of proactive engagements to help enhance security programs, educate employees, and develop tailored cyber initiatives. The Strategic Consultant (Cloud Security) role is one of the primary contributors to engagement delivery, with a strong focus on task-oriented activities, reporting, and supporting engagement leadership to ensure projects are performed on time and to our highest standards.

  • IT / Security Management Consulting: you've held leadership positions and owned relationships with organizational executives as a management or technical consultant. You've worked on a range of infosec and IT issues, including both technical cyber security (applying controls, improving architectures, etc.) and operational cyber security (organizational alignment, cyber policy review, etc.)
  • Security Program Development: you've personally contributed to the development, management, and implementation of a security program, helping organizations build, enhance, or recalibrate their plans for a successful future-leaning security program. This may include aspects of developing a SOC, CSIRT, Fusion Center, or several security initiatives that support a centralized security function.
  • Security Analysis / Operations: you've held leadership or key delivery positions in organizations or on teams that focus on organizational security (such as SOCs, IR teams, etc.).

  • Understanding of how standards and best practices (e.g., NIST CSF, CSA Controls Matrix, AWS Well-Architected Framework, Azure Architecture Framework) are applied to cloud infrastructure.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communications skills, specifically in fast-paced professional environments.
  • Demonstrated ability to establish and maintain positive working relationships with a wide range of customers and team members.
