Cybersecurity Engineer, Mid

The Challenge:

Are you ready to be the first line of Cyber defense for DoD Cybersecurity operations? Are you looking for an opportunity to protect critical infrastructure from the constant onslaught of Cyber attacks? If you want to be in the middle of the action and build your skills by responding to threats real-time, you want to be a Cyber Incident Handler.

As a Cyber Incident Handler on our team, you’ll develop network defense skills as you learn to monitor, detect, and analyze threats by interacting directly with affected users. You’ll use your Cybersecurity skills to:

  • Coordinate defensive Cyberspace operations during critical and high-profile situations visible to all levels of Army leadership
  • Leverage Cybersecurity solutions to administer Cybersecurity operational services, including intrusion detection and prevention, situational awareness of network intrusions, security events, data spillage, and incident response actions
  • Participate in testing, deploying, and administering the infrastructure hardware and software required to effectively manage the organization’s Cybersecurity operational services


When an incident is detected, you’ll work with the team to collect data to help incident response understand and mitigate the threat. You’ll analyze alerts to figure out just how many systems are affected and initiate recovery efforts. You’ll contribute to assessments and learn how to analyze patterns to understand attackers’ goals to stop them from succeeding. This is a great opportunity to build your Cybersecurity skills and learn more about threat assessment and incident response. Join us as we protect our armed forces from malicious actors.

Empower change with us.
