Cyber Incident Handler

The Challenge:

Your combination of people skills and technical expertise makes you the team hero, solving one problem after another. What if you could use those skills to improve the technology supporting ARCYBER? We’re looking for an incident handler with a solid background in testing and vulnerability assessments against a broad range of US Army targets to help us uncover potential security holes that could be exploited by adversarial threat actors.

As a incident handler on our project, you’ll use automated and manual testing methods to discover and exploit vulnerabilities, determine the depth and degree of potential compromise in order to provide the appropriate assistance in securing the network and create deliverable reports addressing testing methods, actionable findings, and recommendations for mitigation strategies and comprehensive security program improvements. You’ll learn how to help customers overcome tough challenges through hands on computer network penetration tests and vulnerability assessments. You’ll analyze problem areas and opportunities for improvement in a mission critical network. You’ll be able to combine your technical experience with communication skills as you turn metrics into information and communicate their meaning. This is an opportunity to gain experience in social engineering, system exploitation, Web application, and wireless penetration testing on Windows and UNIX systems. We focus on growing as a team, so we’ll share techniques, work through challenges, and develop new methodologies together. Join our team and solve daily challenges as we improve Army defensive Cyber operations.

Empower change with us.
