Cyber 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. 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 the federal government, including leading the discovery of their cyber risks, understanding policies, and developing a mitigation plan. You’ll oversee the analysis of technical, environmental, and personnel details from SMEs 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 critical infrastructure. This is your opportunity to take a leadership role in information security while sharing your skills in vulnerability assessments on networking, databases, virtual environments, applications and web servers with both clients and your team. Join us as we protect our nation's cyber infrastructure.
