POSITION SUMMARY

The FSARC seeks a highly motivated and cross-disciplinary analyst to join its intelligence team, offering a rare opportunity to meaningfully contribute to the genesis of an organization driving a new paradigm in collaborative cyber intelligence analysis and security. This is a demanding position that requires a candidate with proven cyber intelligence and analysis skills and demonstrated success in supporting high-impact teams in a fast-paced, high-visibility environment. The FSARC’s mission is to proactively identify, analyze, assess and coordinate activities to mitigate systemic risk to the U.S. financial system from current and emerging cyber security threats through focused operations and enhanced collaboration between participating firms, industry partners, and the U.S. Government 

In 2016, the CEOs of eight banks – Bank of America, BNY Mellon, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, State Street and Wells Fargo – came together to proactively identify ways to enhance the resilience of the critical infrastructure underpinning much of the U.S. financial system. The result is the creation of the FSARC. The FSARC combines the expertise of participating firms’ cyber security and threat intelligence teams with that of its government partners, including the Department of Treasury, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As a result, the collective pipeline of intelligence produced deepens the analysis of identified threats and reduces systemic risk across critical financial operations.
