The Opportunity:

To grow, mature, and transform in today's challenging cyber threat environment, national governments and organizations worldwide need partners to design and implement cybersecurity strategies, programs, and operational capabilities to stay on the leading edge. Whether standing up a greenfield entity, organization, or operations center, transforming an existing one, or seeking new ways of managing national-level cyber defense, our clients need a partner who takes the time to learn the complexities underpinning their challenge, including the security, organizational, and cultural dynamics and provide them with new and novel cybersecurity solutions, from strategies and operating models to operational tools and capabilities.

You will work both independently and leading teams of 2-6 consultants while collaborating closely with other strategy consultants and working hand-in-hand with teams of technical and operational cybersecurity staff and subject-matter experts to design, develop, and deliver blended strategy and technical cybersecurity projects and solutions to our clients ranging from traditional strategy consulting to the delivery of targeted cybersecurity solutions and capabilities. Additionally, you will build and maintain client relationships, drive marketing work, and support business development activities in conjunction with other leaders.

Work with us as we help our allies and partners transform their cybersecurity organizations and capabilities to become safe, secure, and resilient.
