Cybersecurity Engineer, Lead

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 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 Army? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for the Army that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

 

As a Cybersecurity engineer on our project, you’ll coordinate with the DoD agency, Army CIO, and other elements, system owners, vendors, and system developers to collect and verify information assurance (IA) artifacts, policies, and procedures. You’ll work with client teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective 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. As a team, we’ll take a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and risk mitigation needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of Army systems and applications. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like prioritizing and planning RMF and ICD 503-required activities for testing and documenting security control compliance and risk mitigation. You’ll be able to gain experience in DoD, Army and client Cybersecurity policies while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve Army and DoD Cybersecurity.
