Cloud Security Architect

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 identify and implement Cybersecurity solutions to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of systems in leading commercial Clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). What if you could use your Cyber engineering skills to design and build Cybersecurity solutions in the Cloud to protect personal, financial, health, and other sensitive information for government agencies and global enterprises? We’re looking for an experienced architect who can create advanced Cybersecurity solutions in the Cloud that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cloud security architect at Booz Allen, you’ll research, design, and implement Cybersecurity solutions to protect our client's most sensitive information in AWS, Azure, and GCP. You’ll coordinate with investment teams, executives, clients, and industry leading vendors to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective Cloud hosted 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. You’ll lead the team through a critical approach to design, including providing alternatives and customizing solutions while maintaining a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of our country's financial markets, warfighters, citizen services, and healthcare. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating security best practices like SecDevOps, Identity and Access Management, encryption, and security analytics. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into advanced and emerging areas of Cybersecurity like zero trust networks, automated incident response, and container security to support dynamic and immutable Cloud infrastructure. Join our team as we deliver innovative Cybersecurity solutions to protect our client's information in the Cloud.

You’ll design and develop Cloud Infrastructure, Cybersecurity and Network solution architectures and define key capabilities and performance requirements in support of complex business needs. You’ll apply advanced knowledge of networking, Cloud Infrastructure and Cybersecurity technical principles, theories, and concepts to analyze system, network, and security architectures and recommend corrective actions and future-state solutions. You’ll define Cloud Infrastructure and Cybersecurity design and technology maturity constraints of the system in accordance with customer specifications. You’ll define a system implementation approach and operational concept.
