  • Documenting team processes for use in internal Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), and other on-the-shelf documentation of processes for future team reference;
  • Building working relationships to effectively complete the mission, while acknowledging and respecting stakeholder needs and requirements;
  •  Both formulating new and adjusting existing information security metrics for the purpose of analysis and greater enterprise security posture awareness; and consultation and support to other parties concerning Computer Network Defense (CND),  often on an ad hoc basis, as necessary for the mission.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent years of experience in a relevant field (e.g. Cybersecurity, Information Technology, or Computer Science);
  • Minimum two (2) years of experience in information security, information technology, or related field;
  • Experience with traditional Blue Team or Red Team network security activities, and the performance of cyber risk assessments through correlating known vulnerabilities, understanding the threat environment, and prioritizing to mitigate risk to network assets;
  • Effective written and verbal communications skills to prepare and present security assessment results to stakeholders, and to further build relationships with them;
  • Demonstrated ability to review publicly-disclosed vulnerabilities, determine their relevance for the Department, asses impact to Department systems, and recommend appropriate remediation actions to relevant stakeholders and leadership;
  • Working-level proficiency in Splunk, or other enterprise-level data aggregation tools (the ability to execute basic queries, create reports and dashboards);
  • A demonstrated understanding of the Lockheed Martin Cyber Kill Chain, MITRE Attack Framework, and relevant threat actors as part of demonstrating understanding of the cyber threat landscape;
  • A demonstrated ability to review vulnerability and security configuration compliance scan results, highlight relevant findings, identify impact, and recommend next steps for remediation;
  • Some familiarity and understanding of networking hardware security configurations–specifically with regard patch cycles and security configurations compliance

Desired Qualifications:
