What kind of questions do YOU ask in an interview?

I'm looking for my next security analyst position, and I'm trying to think of some questions i can ask to make sure the technology/environment isn't a shit show on the inside. Not looking for the typical culture/pto kind of stuff but i want to know what it will be like to handle their tech.

For example:

  • Do you have central logging/AV dashboards?

  • Whats the typical log volume?

  • How much time do you typically spend doing escalations?

  • Can you easily find the solution to a problem in the runbook/docs?

  • Whats the budget for expanding/updating resources each year?

  • What was your most recent major outage? What was the cause / resolution / prevention?

  • What equipment do you wish you could replace but haven't? Why / not?

  • What are your 2021 initiatives?
