|Explanation & Hint:
The SOC team member who will typically use sandbox technology to analyze malware associated with a zero-day attack in an isolated environment is the Tier 2 incident handler.
Tier 2 incident handlers are responsible for deeper analysis of security incidents, including the examination of suspicious files and malware. They often leverage sandbox environments to execute and analyze potentially malicious code in a controlled and isolated setting to understand the behavior of the malware and determine how to respond effectively to the threat.
