Cybersecurity Engineer and Risk Analyst, Mid

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be "baked in" to a system architecture and that we need to understand Cybersecurity risks to systems instead of just being compliant with a checklist. Still, you know how to bake it in and assess risks to a complex system. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and assess Cybersecurity risk. What if you could use your Cyber engineering skills to provide Cybersecurity solutions for Navy and DoD systems? We're looking for a Cybersecurity engineer and risk analyst who can help create solutions for the Navy that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cybersecurity engineer and risk analyst on our project, you'll analyze the Cyber posture of complex Navy systems, apply critical expertise to mitigating Cyber risk, and develop solutions to ensure Navy programs support mission-critical operations and deliver needed Cybersecurity functionality. You'll work with our team of experts to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your client'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 Cybersecurity and systems engineering, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of the Navy warfighter. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like risk management and mitigation, defense-in-depth, data analysis, and Cyber continuous monitoring. You'll be able to gain experience in DoD, Cyber engineering, enterprise networks and systems, Cyber test and evaluation, and Cyber risk assessment while building peace of mind in critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the warfighter's ability to complete critical missions through Cybersecurity.
