Job Description

Job Description Summary: 
Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to the DoD and the IC. 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 a Cyber-Risk Analyst on our team, you’ll use your experience to work with DoD programs to discover their cyber risks, understand policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from engineers and SMEs 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 networks and systems. This is your opportunity to act as an information security subject matter expert while broadening your skills in cybersecurity, security and network tools, systems engineering, and data science.
