Information Systems Security Officer, Mid

The Challenge:

Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to government entities. 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 knows how to break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As an information security risk specialist on our team, you’ll work with leaders to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and analyze the development of a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from subject matter experts and engineers to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll help your team guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones. You’ll work on translating security concepts for your client so they can make the best decisions to secure their mission critical systems and networks. This is your opportunity to take an active role in information security while growing your skills in risk assessment of hardware and software vulnerabilities. Join us as we protect our clients and their cyber infrastructure.
