Cybersecurity Policy Analyst, Senior

The Challenge:

When our country’s cyber security is on the line, simply reacting is not enough – we need a plan. And when that plan needs to protect the Defense Industrial Base, we need strategic policy development. That’s why we need you, a cyber policy specialist with the expertise required to analyze the policies that determine our cyber resilience.

As a cyber strategic planning and policy development consultant on our team, you’ll lead the assessment of your client's current cyber policies, the coverage of those policies, and areas of risks. You’ll evaluate how policies stack up to regulations, best practices, and industry standards. As you guide your client through understanding acceptable risk and availability, you’ll advance the development of a strategic cyber roadmap. You’ll work in a consultative role to ensure the client operates securely as they navigate an evolving IT environment. Join us as we protect the Defense Industrial Base through strategic cyber policy development.
