Cyber Assessor, Junior

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 government agencies, we need strategic policy development. That’s why we need you, a cyber assessor with the skills to analyze the policies that determine our cyber resilience.

As a cyber assessor on our team, you’ll help review for the federal government's current cyber policies, the coverage of those policies, and areas of risks. You’ll contribute to how policies stack up to regulations, best practices, and industry standards. As you guide your client through understanding acceptable risk and availability, you’ll help develop a strategic cyber roadmap. You’ll work with the client to help them operate securely as they navigate an evolving IT environment. Join us as we protect our nation’s critical infrastructure through strategic cyber policy development.

Empower change with us.
