FedRAMP Assessor, Senior

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 clients. In all of this “cyber noise”, how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you – a lead information security risk specialist who can oversee breaking down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As an information security risk specialist on our team, you’ll consult for government agencies and commercial clients, leading the discovery of their cyber risks, understanding applicable policies, and developing a mitigation plan. You’ll oversee the analysis of technical, environmental, and personnel details from SMEs, engineers, etc as your team reviews the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones. Your client will rely on you to translate security concepts, so they can make the best decisions to secure their mission critical systems. This is your opportunity to take a leadership role in information security while sharing your skills in cloud security and compliance with both clients and your team. Join us as we protect our nation’s cyber infrastructure.
