Job Summary

Do you have what it takes?


This is not your typical cyber role. A cyber war is underway in the world today, with hostile nations seeking to disrupt and destroy critical infrastructure in the United States, all day, and every day. If you want to be on the front lines up against the best cyber criminals and nation state attackers in the world and prove you are better, then this is the place to be.

For our employees, this is a mission, not a job. We educate the company about cyber threats. We establish the standards for cyber security. We perform assessments to ensure proper protections are in place. We manage vulnerabilities and guide the development of defenses. It takes a high degree of skill and a commitment to that mission to be successful. Do you have what it takes?
