HII-TSD is looking for highly skilled and motivated Cyber Systems Engineers to be a part of a team supporting a Threat Based Cyber Security (TBCS) effort called the DoD Cybersecurity Analysis and Review (DoDCAR). DoDCAR is a methodology that specifies how to score cyber capabilities against known Threat Actions (TAs) as specified by a Threat Framework (e.g. MITRE ATT&CK). There is momentum building in DoD and across government to adopt a more threat-centric approach to understanding how effective capabilities are and you will get to work directly in this information space helping shape the direction of cybersecurity in government for decades to come.
