Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to the Navy and DoD. 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 knows how to break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.
As an Cybersecurity Engineer and Risk Specialist on our team, youll work with Navy C4I programs to discover their cyber risks, understand applicable policies, and develop a mitigation plan. Youll get technical, environmental, and personnel details from cyber subject matter experts and engineers to assess the entire threat landscape. Then, youll help your team guide your client through a plan of action with presentations, whitepapers, and milestones. Youll work on translating security concepts for your client so they can make the best decisions to secure their mission critical systems and networks. This is your opportunity to take an active role in information security while growing your skills in risk analysis, systems engineering, cloud security, and data science. Join us as we protect the Navy warfighter and their cyber infrastructure.
