Cyber Risk Management Specialist, Senior

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to 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 Cyber engineering skills to design and build secure systems for the Department of Veterans Affairs? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

 

As a Cyber Risk Management Specialist on our team, you’ll use your experience to work with the VA to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll review technical, environmental, and personnel details from SMEs to assess the entire threat landscape. You’ll then guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones. You’ll work with your client to translate security concepts, so they can make the best decisions to secure their critical infrastructure. This is your opportunity to act as an information security subject matter expert while broadening your data science skills. Join us as we protect our nation’s cyberinfrastructure. The position allows remote delivery.
