Cybersecurity Risk Specialist

The Opportunity:

Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to government agencies. In all of this “cyber noise”, how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you – build your knowledge as an information security risk specialist who knows how to break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As an information security risk specialist on our team, you’ll work with leading agencies in the Health Market to discover their cyber risks, understand policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from SMEs and system engineers to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll help your team guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, whitepapers, and milestones. You’ll work on translating security concepts for your client so they can make the best decisions to secure their critical infrastructure. This is your opportunity to take an active role in information security while growing your skills in risk analysis and ongoing authorization. Join us as we protect our nation's health response and infrastructure.

Join us. The world can’t wait.
