Cybersecurity Support Specialist

The Challenge:

Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to government agencies and military organizations. In all of this “cyber noise”, how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you – build your knowledge as an information security risk specialist who knows how to break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As an information security risk specialist on our team, you’ll work with DoD organizations to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from on-site team members to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll help your team guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, whitepapers, and milestones. You’ll work on translating security concepts for your client so they can make the best decisions to secure their mission critical systems. This is your opportunity to take an active role in information security while growing your skills in cloud technology, cybersecurity and risk management, AI and ML, data science and management, and virtualization. Join us as we protect America's warfighting systems!
