RMF and IA Accreditation Specialist, 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 provide technical analysis for information assurance (IA) support and integration efforts and analyze certification and accreditation (C&A) documentation for operational systems, networks, and applications, and information security (INFOSEC) product evaluation and documentation identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for our clients that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As an IA and RMF Specialist on our project, you’ll analyze the Cyber posture of complex systems, apply critical expertise to mitigate Cyber risk, develop solutions to ensure 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 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 the warfighter. Your contributions will help customers to overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like risk management and mitigation, defense-in-depth, data analysis, and Cyber continuous monitoring. Join our team as we improve the warfighter’s ability to complete critical missions through Cybersecurity.
