The Opportunity:

Cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to the Navy and DoD. In all of this “cyber noise” how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you. We need your knowledge as an information security risk specialist to help break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.  

As an information security risk specialist on our team you’ll work with Navy programs to discover their cyber risks, understand policies and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from engineers and SMEs to assess the entire threat landscape. 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 mission critical networks and systems. This is your opportunity to take an active role in information security while growing your skills in cybersecurity, security and network tools, systems engineering and data science. Work with us as we protect our Navy's cybersecurity posture.
