Cyber security engineer interview questions shared by candidates
What sort of anomalies would you look for to identify a compromised system?
I used a whiteboard to draw out a basic network architecture including security technologies like IPS/IDS, Firewalls, AV, etc, and described the type of traffic and logs I could use to identify a compromised system.
Technical: Prior experience with cyber security tool kits (vulnerability scanning, active exploitation, etc.). Some DoD-specific defense toolkit questions. Network knowledge, protocol-specific questions on encryption. Explain network topology/infrastructure experience. Defensive security suite questions (AV, security appliances, etc.). Personality questions: How do you handle difficult co-workers/egos in the workplace. Explain moments where you've been a leader in the workforce without being asked to lead/were in a formal leadership position. Other typical behavior/personality questions.
