Information Systems Security Officer, Mid

The Challenge:
Warnings about Cyber threats are everywhere, and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them to seem overwhelming to the defense industry. 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 a Cyber risk specialist who knows how to break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.

As an information systems security officer on our team, you’ll work with Cyber defense teams to discover their Cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and analyze the development of a mitigation plan. You’ll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from SMEs and engineers to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, you’ll help your team guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, white papers, and milestones. You’ll monitor, analyze, and detect Cyber events and incidents within information systems and networks under general supervision.

This is your opportunity to take an active role in Cybersecurity while growing your skills in the integration of dynamic Cyber-defense. Join us as you improve and maintain security toolsets to support organizations’ continuous monitoring and ongoing authorization programs.
