Privacy Lead

The Challenge:

When our country’s cybersecurity is on the line, simply reacting is not enough – we need a plan. And when we're called to protect defense "big data" systems, we need top-notch expertise. That’s why we need you, a Privacy specialist with the knowledge and skills required to provide oversight and leadership to a fast-paced Privacy Program.

As a cyber strategic planning and policy development consultant on our team, you’ll oversee privacy-related documents, including Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA), System of Record Notices (SORN), and Privacy and Sensitive Data Detection and Prevention Plans. You'll ensure staff satisfy Personally Identifiable Information (PII) training requirements, develop supplemental training as needed, and contribute to incident and breach response-related tabletop exercises. You'll participate in the program's Data Governance Board by assessing dataset Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and Memorandum of Agreements (MOAs) and determining whether additional controls need to be met before data ingestion.

You’ll evaluate how to program policies stack up to regulations, best practices, and industry standards. As you guide your client through understanding acceptable risk and availability, you’ll lead the team on the development of a strategic cyber roadmap. You’ll work with the client to ensure they operate securely as they navigate an evolving IT environment.
