Cyber Policy Consultant

The Challenge:

When our country’s cybersecurity is on the line, simply reacting is not enough – we need a plan. And when that plan needs to protect our defense infrastructure, we need strategic policy analysis. That’s why we need you, a security specialist with the expertise required to analyze the policies that determine our cyber resilience.

As a cyber policy consultant on our team, you’ll lead the assessment of your client’s current cyber policies, the coverage of those policies, and areas of risks. You’ll evaluate how policies stack up to regulations, best practices, and industry standards. As you guide your client through understanding acceptable risk and availability, you’ll advance the development of a strategic cyber roadmap. You’ll work in a consultative role to ensure the client operates securely as they navigate an evolving IT environment. Join us as we protect our nation’s critical infrastructure through strategic cyber policy analysis.
