Cybersecurity Assessor

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

As a Cybersecurity Assessor on our project, you’ll conduct a compliance assessment of new and existing information systems and prepare security assessment reports containing the results and findings from the compliance evaluation. You’ll work with various engineering and Cyber 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 information systems that directly support the warfighter. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices and Cyber methodologies to conduct vulnerability management assessments, risk assessments, and hardware and software security implementation evaluations. You’ll be able to gain experience in the automation and orchestration of security compliance evaluations across Enterprise, Mission, and cloud-based IT services, while building piece of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the compliance and functionality of mission systems supporting the warfighter through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
