Assessment & Authorization, Mid

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 Cybersecurity skills to design and build secure systems for DoD? We’re looking for a Cybersecurity practitioner who can help create solutions for DoD that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As an Assessment and Authorization Analyst on our project, you’ll provide information assurance measures, controls, and support services for a DoD client in accordance with Risk Management Frameworks (RMF), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) or other applicable DoD and Federal procedures and policies, common criteria, and applicable standards. You’ll work with in house teams 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 mission needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of warfighter communications. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint-based detection, response EDR, multi-factor authentication, identity and access management, advanced analytics, etc. You’ll be able to gain experience in analyzing the development of Cybersecurity and privacy policies, programs, and compliance artifacts and standards in support of government and industry security compliance, including systems accreditation, and management while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve warfighter communications through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
