Systems Security Design Services Team Lead, Lead

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to see big picture and make a profound impact on the security of Defense critical systems? This is your chance to identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface, supporting our Defense clients in the analysis, engineering, planning, and strategy development related to a threat, analysis, and architecture. You will play a lead role in transforming Cybersecurity in Defense systems. Join our team and help to turn requirements into accomplishments that drive change.

You’ll lead a Security Engineering team that advises systems owners and stakeholders on cybersecurity requirements and design during the Defense Acquisition Lifecycle. The team conducts analysis of system design and requirements to identify vulnerabilities in critical components, vulnerability gaps, gaps in cybersecurity requirements, and assists with development of recommended, derived cybersecurity requirements to close gaps. The goal is to support a secure and survivable overall system design through detection of issues/gaps, and early integration of security-related requirements.
