Information Systems Security Analyst, Senior

The Challenge:

Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to even the best teams of engineers. In all of this “cyber noise”, how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you – an information systems security analyst who will break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As an information systems security analyst on our team, you’ll use your experience to work with engineering and integration teams to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll review technical, environmental, and personnel details from engineers and integrators to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll 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 products, infrastructure, and networks. This is your opportunity to act as an information security subject matter expert while broadening your skills in cybersecurity, network engineering, and mobile data networking.
