Information Security Risk Specialist

The Opportunity:  

Cyber threats are everywhere, and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to the Department of Defense. In all of this “cyber noise,” how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you. We need your knowledge as an information security risk specialist to help break down complex threats into manageable plans of action. As an information security risk specialist on our team, you’ll work to discover cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from engineers and SMEs to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll help your team guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones.

You’ll work with your client to translate security concepts, so they can make the best decisions to secure their mission critical systems and critical infrastructure. This is your opportunity to take an active role in information security while growing your skills in cybersecurity, security and network tools, systems engineering, and data science. Work with us as we protect our nation's cyber infrastructure and critical systems.
