Warnings about cyber threats are everywhere and the constantly evolving nature of these threats can make understanding them seem overwhelming to the DoD.

The answer is you – build your knowledge as an information security risk specialist who can help break down complex threats into manageable plans of action.
As an Information Security Risk Specialist on our team, you’ll assist the DoD with discovering their cyber risks, understanding applicable policies, and developing a mitigation plan. You’ll gather technical, environmental, and personnel details from SME’s, systems engineers, and, developers to help with assessment of the entire threat landscape.
