Cyber Situational Awareness Engineer

The Challenge:

When our country's Cybersecurity is on the line, simply reacting is not enough – we need a plan. And when that plan needs to protect our defense infrastructure, we need strategic policy development. That's why we need you, a security specialist with the skills to analyze the policies that determine our Cyber resilience.

As a Cyber strategic planning and policy development consultant on our team, you'll assess your client's current Cyber policies, the coverage of those policies, and areas of risks. You'll evaluate how policies stack up to regulations, best practices, and industry standards. As you guide your client through understanding acceptable risk and availability, you'll work on the development of a strategic Cyber roadmap. You'll work with the client to help them operate securely as they navigate an evolving IT environment. Join us as we protect our nation's critical infrastructure through strategic Cyber policy development.
