Information Security System Engineer
The Challenge:

Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to our nation's cyber infrastructure. In all of this "cyber noise", how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you - an information security risk specialist who will break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As an information security risk specialist on our team, you'll use your experience to work with law enforcement to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You'll review technical, environmental, and personnel details from engineers to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you'll guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones. You'll work with your client to translate security concepts, so they can make the best decisions to secure their mission critical systems. This is your opportunity to act as an information security subject matter expert while broadening your skills in cloud computing and data science. Join us as we protect our nation's cyber infrastructure.
