The Opportunity:  

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 a Network Security Risk Specialist like you who will break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.  

As a Network Security Risk Specialist on our team, you’ll use your experience to work with DoD clients to discover their cyber risks, understand policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll review technical, environmental, and personnel details from Subject Matter Experts and Engineers to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, whitepapers, 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. This is your opportunity to act as an information security subject matter expert while broadening your skills in cyber defense and information assurance.

Work with us as we protect our military’s communications systems.
