Cyberspace Policy Analyst and SME, Senior

The Challenge:

Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to the Department of Defense (DoD). In all of this “cyber noise”, how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you – a cyberspace policy analyst who will break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As a cyberspace policy analyst on our team, you’ll use your experience to work with senior leaders to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll review technical, environmental, and personnel details from cyber operations and intelligence 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 DoD critical infrastructure, control systems, operational technology networks, devices, and information. This is your opportunity to act as an information security subject matter expert while broadening your skills in managing risk through policy enhancements. Join us as we protect our nations cyber infrastructure.
