Job Number: R0053383

Cyber Risk and Systems Analyst, Senior

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture and that we need to understand Cybersecurity risks to systems instead of just being compliant to a checklist, but you actually know how to bake it in and assess risk to a complex system. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and assess their Cybersecurity risk posture. What if you could use your Cyber engineering and analyst skills to provide Cybersecurity solutions for Navy and DoD systems? We’re looking for a Cyber analyst who can help create solutions for the Navy that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cyber risk and systems analyst on our project, you’ll analyze the Cyber posture of complex Navy systems, provide critical expertise to mitigate Cyber risk, and develop solutions to ensure Navy programs support mission critical operations and deliver needed Cybersecurity functionality. You’ll work with our team of experts 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 Cyber assessment and authorization, 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 the Navy warfighter. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like risk management and mitigation, defense-in-depth, and cyber continuous monitoring. You’ll be able to gain experience with Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I), Cyber engineering, enterprise networks, and Cyber risk assessments while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the warfighter’s ability to complete critical missions through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
