Warnings about Cyber threats are everywhere, and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them to seem overwhelming to the intelligence community. 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 the DoD to discover their Cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from senior staff 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 vulnerability assessments using a variety of methods, including network and Web application security testing to provide network and system evaluation for Cyber anomalies. This is your opportunity to take an active role in information security while growing your skills in analyzing security configurations and determine if they meet best practice implementations to ensure resiliency, mission assurance, and recommendations for appropriate remediation and post-remediation risk evaluation. Join us as we protect our nation's Cybersecurity infrastructure.
