Verification and Validation Analyst, Mid

The Challenge:

Are you ready to take an active role in cyber defense for DoD JSP? Are you looking for an opportunity to protect critical infrastructure from the constant onslaught of cyber-attacks? If you want to sharpen your skills by analyzing threats in real-time, you want to be a Verification and Validation analyst.

You will demonstrate the ability to correlate cyber vulnerabilities to customers’ cyber terrain using scanning technologies. You will apply technical knowledge of ACAS, HBSS, and Tanium to interpret tool reports and will communicate vulnerability statuses to subscribers and Risk Management Framework (RMF) practitioners to support system accreditation processes. You will apply expertise in STIG fix text remediation to provide recommendations to customers, and document those recommendations in executive reports.

You’ll work with the team to understand, mitigate, and respond to threats quickly, restoring operations and limiting the impact. You’ll analyze incidents to figure out just how many systems are affected and assist recovery efforts. You’ll combine threat intelligence, event data, and assessments from recent events, and identify patterns to understand attackers’ goals to stop them from succeeding. This is a great opportunity to build your cyber security skills with hands on experience in threat assessment and incident response. Join us as we protect DoD JSP from malicious actors.
