Information Security Risk Specialist

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 military 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 use your expertise to work with law enforcement to discover their cyber risks, understand policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll review technical, environmental, and personnel details from engineers to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones. You’ll work with your client to translate security concepts, so they can make the best decisions to secure their mission critical systems. Act as an information security subject matter expert while broadening your skills in cloud computing and data science.
