Cybersecurity GRC Strategist, Senior

The Challenge:

When our country’s cybersecurity is on the line, simply reacting is not enough – we need a plan. And when that plan needs to protect our nation's critical infrastructure, we need strategic policy and assessment development. That’s why we need you, a GRC specialist with the expertise required to analyze the policies that determine our cyber resilience.

As a cybersecurity GRC strategist on our team, you’ll lead the assessment of civil clients’ current cyber policies, the coverage of those policies, and areas of risks. You’ll evaluate how policies stack up to regulations, best practices, and industry standards. As you guide your client through understanding acceptable risk and availability, you’ll advance the development of a strategic cyber roadmap. You’ll work in a consultative role to ensure the client operates securely as they navigate an evolving IT environment. Join us as we protect our nation's critical infrastructure through strategic cyber policy development. This position is open to remote delivery anywhere within the U.S., to include the District of Columbia.
