Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to government agencies. 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 can help break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.
As an information security risk specialist on our team, you’ll assist federal government clients with discovering their cyber risks, understanding applicable policies, and developing a mitigation plan. You’ll gather technical, environmental, and personnel details from systems engineers, developers, policy and governance staff, system owners, security operations staff, and Information System Security Officers to help with assessment of the entire threat landscape. You’ll learn how to guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones and help to translate security concepts so they can make the best decisions to secure their mission-critical systems. This is your opportunity to build experience in a strategic information security role while developing skills in cyber security and a platform to build a career in any or all emerging cyber security disciplines, such as cloud security, mobile security, critical infrastructure security, secure DevOps, supply chain security, etc. Join us as we protect the mission-critical infrastructure, systems and data of our nation’s federal government!
