This is a chance to make a difference in the security of the DoD. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help clients overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like NDR, EDR, SEIMs, IAM, Advanced analytics, and a growing suite of cyber tools. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas with various cyber tools, vendors, and a mix of enterprise IT security and OT Security while leading a team of cyber professionals.
