Database Security Tester

The Challenge:

When our country’s cyber security is on the line, simply reacting is not enough – we need a plan. And when that plan needs to protect databases for federal financial agencies, we need SMEs to help ensure those databases are secured. That’s why we need you, a security specialist with the expertise required to analyze the databases that contain sensitive information.

As a database security tester on our team, you’ll lead the assessment of your client's current cyber security posture of their databases and areas of risk. You’ll evaluate how databases stack up to baselines, best practices, and industry standards. 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 IT environment. Join us as we protect the data of federal financial agencies.
