Cyber Security  Engineer

Candidate must have TS SCI with POLY

Program Description:

Our client is working on a significant effort supporting several customer networks on different platforms. The team is responsible for modern system implementations, system O&M, C&A, continuous monitoring, information security and communications security on all of these systems, allowing flexibility to work on and be proficient in several IT disciplines. Because of the totality of support, there is a true number of career paths that one can choose to mature and grow into the IT professional they want to be.

  Day-to-day Responsibilities:

The Cyber Security Engineer will provide technical expertise to the customer in performance of a broad range of information assurance engineering tasks in the customer' s environment. They will be doing hands on security including forensics, vulnerability scans, analysis, etc. 

The team is not going to just be doing A&A and vulnerability scans, but is looking for folks who are more hands-on / technical.  Candidates who have experience in threat assessments, incident response, and forensics.  They need to understand the latest tools and techniques used in cyber defense and can perform assessments and testing of our current security protections to detect any areas of weakness.  They should be able to recommend security appliances / designs to keep our customer’ s systems secure and be able to do the initial triage and investigation when there is a security incident.  If a candidate has worked in or managed a Security Operations Center before that would be great.  Even if the candidate is junior with only a little bit of experience that is ok – if they are a go-getter and willing to learn

If someone has had experience as a network engineer or sys admin, etc. prior to getting into the INFOSEC field that would be great – but not a requirement.  Also, if someone has certs like Security +, A+, CISSP, etc. – that is a nice to have / bonus.
