Google is hiring an "investigator/threat analyst" in what could be an indicator that it is worried about insider threats.

The job posting, pointed out by Barry Schwartz at SearchEngineLand, outlines the following role:

Working with the Director of Corporate Safety & Security, the Investigator/Threat Analyst will be responsible for investigating deviations from company policies or acts against Google as well as collection and analysis of information helping define and assess threats to Google’s operations and assets.

This analyst would assess risks to Google assets, investigate violations of "Google’s security/HR/Finance policies, Code of Conduct, or other business conditions," and audit process deficiencies and address weaknesses.

The requirements also get interesting. Google notes that the position requires a:

Minimum of 10 years experience and demonstrated record of success in positions of increasing responsibility within private sector corporate security or a related public sector organization, including 3-5 years of experience in a significant international investigative role.

The international experience is also notable. Google is apparently worried about the insider threat at its various outposts abroad.
