Military Qualified Validator

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but you actually know how to bake it in. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. What if you could use your Cybersecurity skills to design and build secure systems for DoD? We’re looking for a validator who can create solutions for cyber-security that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a Cybersecurity Validator on our project, you’ll conduct Cyber assessments to ensure security controls have been implemented correctly and are effective in their application. You’ll coordinate work with Cybersecurity teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s IT needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you’ll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You’ll lead the team, maintain a balance of security, and translate your customer’s needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of Military IT warfighting platforms. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like researching new techniques. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like taking a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives, and customizing solutions while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve military communication through Cybersecurity.
