Information Assurance Engineer, Mid

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 skills to design and build secure systems for the Army? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for the Army that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

 

As a Cybersecurity engineer on our project, you’ll be providing information and assurance support to our clients. You’ll analyze the Cyber posture of a test harness system, provide critical expertise to mitigate Cyber risk, and perform Cybersecurity activities, including identifying, assessing, monitoring, and mitigating Cybersecurity risks in an effort to obtain and sustain authorization to operate (ATO) certification. You’ll work with our development and operational team of experts to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate customer’s needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like defense-in-depth, risk management, identity and access management, and information assurance. You’ll be able to gain experience in Cybersecurity and information assurance while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. You’ll broaden your skillset into other areas by developing plans of action and milestones (POA&M), creating risk management framework (RMF) documentation in support of IA accreditation, and performing vulnerability management using automated systems, including ACAS data feeds. You’ll create RMF packages for test harness, including documentation to mitigate non-compliance security controls. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint based detection, response, multi-factor authentication, identity and access management, patch management, vulnerability scanning, static-code analysis, and advanced analytics.
