  • Support cybersecurity governance, risk, and compliance by providing plans, policies, and procedures relevant to the Army Geospatial Center's (AGC's) systems, applications, and networks, including AGGC-R Cloud, C2IE, Overseas Humanitarian Assistance Shared Information System (OHASIS). The SME Information Security Analyst maintains AGC's Tenant Security Plans (TSP) for SIPR and NIPR, Authority to Operate (ATO) for the Joint Worldwide Intelligence communication systems (JWICS), and Interim Authority to Test (IATT), Approval to Connect (ATC), and any other documentation necessary to support AGC's network connections and mission systems.
  • Manage the Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service (eMASS) records for AGC's mission systems and enclaves, create and track POA&M, track IAVM and STIG compliance, and manage eMASS artifacts necessary in coordination with the ISSM and the cybersecurity personnel to support evidence for applicable security controls.
  • Support Risk Management Framework (RMF) activities, including categorization of systems IAW NIST SP 800-60, selection of security controls IAW CNSSI 1253 and NIST SP 800-53, assessment of security controls IAW NIST SP 800-53A, development and implementation of Continuous Monitoring Plans IAW NIST SP800-137, STIG Traceability Matrix, hardware/software/firmware list, and System Security Plan (SSP).
  • Participate in the configuration process (CM) through representation on the Technical Review Board (TRB) and Configuration Control Board (CCB) and provide a security impact assessment for changes submitted through Request for Change (RFCs).
