Full Job Description
Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but you actually know how to bake it in. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. What if you could use your cyber engineering skills to design and build secure systems for the Department of Veterans Affairs? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.
As a cybersecurity engineer on our project, you’ll provide technical engineering services for the support of integrated security systems and solutions. You’ll coordinate work with in-house teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s IT needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you’ll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You’ll lead the team through a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of healthcare privacy. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like network topologies, intrusion detection, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and other cybersecurity practices and tools. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like extensive expertise in all aspects of cybersecurity with a vast array of IT systems involving end user, including enterprise-level networks while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve healthcare for millions of customers through cybersecurity.
