Cybersecurity Information Assurance Specialist, Senior

Job Description Job Number: R0045437

Cybersecurity Information Assurance Specialist, Senior

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but you actually know how to bake it in. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. What if you could use your Cyber engineering skills to design and build secure systems for customers? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for customers that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cyber operations engineer on our project, you’ll provide recommendations and support Cyber process improvements and requirements and the design of special combat systems in support of mission critical operations. You’ll coordinate work with leadership and stakeholders, in house teams, engineers and developers, and OEMs to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s IT needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you’ll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You’ll lead the team through a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of warfighter systems and communications. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint based detection, multi-factor authentication, identity and access management, and Cyber metrics. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like supporting warfighting systems and using and leading risk assessment events and Cloud-based security while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve warfighter systems/missions and our defense system through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
