Cyber Vulnerability Assessments Team Lead

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to see big picture and make a profound impact on the security of Defense critical systems? This is your chance to identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface, supporting our Defense clients in the analysis, engineering, planning, and strategy development related to threat, analysis, and architecture. You will play a lead role in transforming Cybersecurity in Defense systems. Join our team and help to turn requirements into accomplishments that drive change.

You’ll lead a team that will partner with government personnel to engage in planning, performing, and reporting on weapon system cyber vulnerability assessments. Cyber Vulnerability Assessments are evaluations of Defense weapons systems cybersecurity and cyber resilience. The cyber vulnerability assessment teams work closely with system owners and stakeholders to understand the technical characteristics and operation of the system, mission objectives, critical functions, networks, and other systems a weapons platform must interact with to fulfill mission objectives.
