Cybersecurity Analyst, Mid

The Challenge:
When our country’s cybersecurity is on the line, simply reacting is not enough – we need a plan. And when that plan needs to protect our nation's airborne networks, we need strategic policy development. That’s why we need you, a security specialist with the expertise required to analyze the policies that determine our cyber resilience.

As a cyber strategic planning and policy development consultant on our team, you’ll assist with the Assessment and Authorization (A&A) of airborne platforms and ground support systems. You’ll review systems to identify potential security weaknesses and recommend improvements to mitigate risk, implement changes, and document modifications. You’ll review technical, environmental, and personnel details from subject matter experts, engineers, and program managers to assess the entire threat landscape. You’ll work closely with the program manager to translate security concepts enabling them to make informed decisions to secure their mission critical systems. As you guide your client through understanding acceptable risk and availability, you’ll advance the development of a strategic cyber roadmap. You’ll work in a consultative role to ensure the client operates securely as they navigate an evolving environment.
