About the Role:
The CrowdStrike Services Internship Programme is a 12-week full-time summer internship that provides individuals with experience across all major aspects of the CrowdStrike Services business, with a focus on Incident Response.
Locations: UK - London/Remote
12 Week Internship
Start Date: June 5, 2023
End Date: August 25, 2023
After completing this programme, candidates will have experience in the following areas:
Forensics and Triage
Windows and Linux Disk Forensics (X-Ways Forensics and Magnet AXIOM)
Forensic Analysis via Supertimelining (Plaso/log2timeline)
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Project Management and Reporting

What You’ll Need:
You must be working towards a BA/BSc/BEng or MA/MSci/MEng undergraduate degree in Cybersecurity, Computer Forensics, Computer Science, Computer Systems Engineering, Electronic & Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Information Security, Information Systems, Information Assurance, Information Security Management, Intelligence Studies, Data Science or any other related field. Applicants will be considered from courses other than this example list where applicable experience and aptitude is demonstrated.
You must be in the penultimate year of your undergraduate programme, i.e. your:
Second year of a three-year Bachelor’s programme;
Third year of a four-year year in industry (“sandwich”) programme; or
Third year of a four-year integrated Master’s undergraduate programme.
This will mean that you should be scheduled to graduate during the Summer of 2024. For the avoidance of doubt, CrowdStrike will also accept applications from candidates on 3½ year programmes, such as those often offered in Scotland, due to complete in December 2023.
Successful applicants will join the UK Incident Response (IR) team in a remote position. The team operates a “hybrid” (predominantly remote) model, combining four days per week of remote work with one day per week in our East London office near Shoreditch. Whilst you do not need to be based in the Greater London area, successful applicants will be invited to travel to London approximately once every four weeks (at CrowdStrike’s expense) to meet and collaborate with the team. This is, of course, subject to local health measures.
You must be eligible to work in the UK.
All employment offers, including for interns, are subject to a full background check.

Have an investigative mindset and a desire to find and stop evil
Keep up with the latest vulnerabilities and breaches
Be self-motivated and actively seek opportunities for growth
Desire to rapidly accelerate their skills
Crave new and innovative work

Desire to develop both technical and soft skills
Contribute to a positive work environment, and have a can-do attitude
Be seeking a career in cybersecurity and/or incident response

From a technical perspective, it is desired (but not required) that candidates:
Be comfortable with command-line interfaces (Windows, Linux, macOS, or any combination of those)
Be familiar with scripting languages (PowerShell, Python 3, etc.)
Be versed in forensic analysis methodology for Windows systems (Mac/Linux forensics knowledge is a plus)
