Data Encryption SME

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 engineering skills to lead the design and building of secure systems for customers? We’re looking for an engineer who can create customer solutions that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a lead Cyber engineer on our project, you’ll provide technical leadership in identifying and providing a strategy for applying data encryption at rest on various platforms – database, network, UNIX and Linux servers, Windows, mainframe, Cloud, and applications software and provide guidance and direction on the development and implementation of encryption architectures, services, and solutions. You’ll coordinate work with the team and client to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s IT 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 advise on new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You’ll lead efforts to help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating enterprise data encryption at rest practices. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to use Cybersecurity solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges.

Empower change with us.
