Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to many government agencies. In all of this “cyber noise”, how can these organizations understand their risks and how to mitigate them? The answer is you – an information security risk specialist who will break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.
As an Information Security Risk Specialist on our team, you’ll use your experience to work with Information System Owners (ISO), developers and system integrators to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. You’ll review technical, environmental, and personnel details from developers and system maintainers 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 system. This is your opportunity to act as an information security subject matter expert while broadening your skills in cloud and on premises environments and assisting our customer in transitioning to a Zero Trust Model.
