Cybersecurity Assessor, Mid

The Challenge:

Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to DoD, Combatant Commands, and other federal government organizations. In all of this “cyber noise”, how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you – build your knowledge as an information security risk specialist who knows how to break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As a Network Cybersecurity Assessor on our team, you’ll work with the DoD and other federal government organizations to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policy, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from Security Professionals and Leaders, Systems Administrators, Network Administrators and Engineers, IAMs, and ISSOs to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll help your team guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones.

You’ll work on translating security concepts for your client so they can make the best decisions to secure the client's information systems, assets, and enclaves possess the necessary security measures to ensure their availability, protection, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation, including monitoring, detection, discovery, and reaction capabilities of internal and external adversaries and ensure a trained and effective IA workforce. This is your opportunity to take an active role in information security while growing your skills in conducting reviews of enterprises, enclaves, networks, systems and applications, certification and accreditation support, independent evaluation based on national and DoD-level Cybersecurity and IA and Cybersecurity Service requirements, and the procedures and practices as they are implemented by the combatant commands, including their sub-unified commands, joint task forces, component commands, and supporting organizations and agencies, to ensure their adequacy to provide a measurement and training tool to determine the defending force’s readiness and provide a basis for planning and programming needed improvements. Join us as we protect our military’s communications systems and our nation’s cyber infrastructure. This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site and working remotely.
