Cyber and Cloud SME
The Challenge:

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 and Cloud skills to lead the design and building of secure systems? We're looking for an architect who can create solutions for the Air Force that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a lead Cyber and Cloud SME, you will serve as an information security and IT transformation expert. You will recommend and analyze strategies or specific plans to incorporate Cyber in overarching digital transformation strategies. Analyze the development of memorandums or policies that instantiate Cyber principles and requirements for a client community. Develop and deliver updates to strategies and policies that specifically address Cyber considerations and requirements. Assist with developing high-level guidance to ensure Cyber considerations are included in all program plans. Evaluate client programs to identify and document Cyber gaps or risks that could influence Cyber strategies or policy. Advise on and assist with the development of Risk Management Framework (RMF) artifacts to support authority to operate (ATO) packages across the portfolio, advise on the adoption of mobile technology for the enterprise, and analyze the development of specific plans to ensure Cybersecurity requirements are incorporated into mobile strategies and plans.

You will also support Cloud computing strategy as it pertains to designing and migrating applications to a commercial Cloud, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. Act as a Cloud architect expert to guide the transition from physical data centers to Cloud solutions and support the implementation of various AWS services while fully transforming our clients' portfolios.

Empower change with us.
