Cyber Risk & Compliance Analyst

The Challenge:

Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to government agencies and commercial 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 can help break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As an information security risk specialist on our team, you’ll assist clients with discovering their cyber risks, understanding applicable policies, and developing a mitigation plan. You’ll gather technical, environmental, and personnel details from stakeholders to help with assessment of the entire threat landscape. You’ll learn how to guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones and help to translate security concepts so they can make the best decisions to secure their information systems. This is your opportunity to build experience in a strategic information security role while developing skills in compliance and risk management. Join us as we protect critical information systems for some of our key clients.
