Experience with the DoD's Cybersecurity processes (DIACAP and/or the RMF/Risk Management Framework) is a plus.
This position will work with integrated product teams to assess the impacts of vulnerabilities, develop and implement mitigation plans, and document all findings. The position also performs testing to validate established security requirements, recommends additional security requirements and safeguards, supports the formal testing required by government accrediting authorities, prepares System Security Plans, updates Plan of Actions and Milestones, reviews system audits, and monitors corrective actions until all actions are closed.
