The Opportunity:

Everyone is trying to “harness the cloud,” but not everyone knows how to secure it. As a cloud security architect, you know how to assess and implement requirements that ensure the safety of information systems and protect them against intentional or inadvertent access or destruction. What if you could use your advanced cloud security skills to improve the homeland security mission? We need you to lead the development of cloud-based security architectures for some of the client's most critical systems.

As a cloud security architect on our team, you’ll define and implement security architecture to support mission-critical operations. You’ll recommend tools and capabilities based on your research of the environment and knowledge of various on-premises, cloud-based, and hybrid resources to address the risk management framework (RMF). Your high-level technical expertise will be vital as you work with your team and the client to ensure standards are met with information assurance and security requirements.

This is an opportunity to apply the latest cloud technologies as you look for ways to secure your customer’s environment.

Help us transform and secure homeland security systems with cloud technology.
