The Opportunity: 
As a cyber threat intel analyst, you know the key to detecting and deterring malicious activity is quality risk-based intel that maps to a tactical behavior. At Booz Allen, you can apply your skills and experience to help investigate the most pressing cyber threats impacting the National Security sector. This is your chance to take on the adversary’s perspective, identify their motivations, and recommend ways to harden systems, reduce their attack surface, and thwart malicious actors.

You’ll help conduct strategic assessments on systems and networks and provide tactical analyses and influential recommendations for network operation. You’ll be the key to discovering and correlating timely threat intel and deciphering what represents a real risk, and you’ll play an active role in incident analysis, adversarial research, packet analysis, dynamic malware analysis, and finished intelligence products to inform policymakers, cyber operators, and mission area leadership.  

Cyber threats are evolving. Booz Allen is committed to creating an environment where you not only keep pace with the industry but propel it forward. With access to academic programs, certifications, and opportunities to use expert tradecraft, we’ll continuously invest in you so you can create the career you want as you grow.
