Cloud Cybersecurity Engineer

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but you actually know how to bake it in. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. What if you could use your Cyber cloud security skills to design and build secure systems for the federal government? We’re looking for a Cloud Cybersecurity engineer who can help create solutions for our client that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cloud Cybersecurity engineer on our project, you’ll partner with federal and commercial clients to execute comprehensive Cloud security solutions that support business needs and objectives in complex environments. You’ll work with Booz Allen and client team members to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you’ll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. As a team, we’ll take a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and Cloud security needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of federal Cloud security and network infrastructure. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like administering, implementing, and supporting complex enterprise or government IT systems or networks. You’ll be able to gain experience in deploying and administering Splunk or other SIEM tools, McAfee ePO or other host-based security tools, and Tenable Nessus or other vulnerability scanning tools while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve Cloud security strategy through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
