Cyber Cloud Technologies Information Systems Security Engineer 3 in Fort Meade, Maryland

This position requires an active TS/SCI with Polygraph clearance

The Information Systems Security Engineer shall perform, or review, technical security assessments of computing environments to identify points of vulnerability, non-compliance with established Information Assurance (IA) standards and regulations, and recommend mitigation strategies.

  • Validates and verifies system security requirements definitions and analysis and establishes system security designs.
  • Designs, develops, implements and/or integrates IA and security systems and system components including those for networking, computing, and enclave environments to include those with multiple enclaves and with differing data protection/classification requirements.
  • Builds IA into systems deployed to operational environments. Assists architects and systems developers in the identification and implementation of appropriate information security functionality to ensure uniform application of Agency security policy and enterprise solutions.
  • Supports the building of security architectures. Enforce the design and implementation of trusted relations among external systems and architectures. Assesses and mitigates system security threats/risks throughout the program life cycle.
  • Contributes to the security planning, assessment, risk analysis, risk management, certification and awareness activities for system and networking operations. Reviews certification and accreditation (C&A;) documentation, providing feedback on completeness and compliance of its content.
  • Applies system security engineering expertise in one or more of the following to: system security design process; engineering life cycle; information domain; cross domain solutions; commercial off-the-shelf and government off-the-shelf cryptography; identification; authentication; and authorization; system integration; risk management; intrusion detection; contingency planning; incident handling; configuration control; change management; auditing; certification and accreditation process; principles of IA (confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, availability, and access control); and security testing.
  • Support security authorization activities in compliance with NSA/CSS Information System Certification and Accreditation (NISCAP) and DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) process, the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) process, and prescribed NSA/CSS business processes for security engineering.

Qualification: Twenty (20) years experience as an ISSE on programs and contracts of similar scope, type, and complexity within the Federal Government is required. A Master’s degree in Computer Science, Information Assurance, Information Security System Engineering, or related discipline may be substituted for two (2) years of experience, reducing the requirement to eighteen (18) years of experience. Skill: Interacts with customers, IT staff, and high-level corporate officers to define and achieve required IA objectives Skill: Provides the Government assistance to ensure that the architecture and design of information systems are functional and secure, including program of record systems and special purpose environments with platform IT interconnectivity Skill: Provides expert guidance and work product evaluation to one or more security engineers that support Engineering teams for the design, development, implementation, evaluation, and/or integration of secure networking, computing, and enclave environments Skill: Advocates and recommends system-level solutions to resolve security requirements. Monitors and suggests improvement to IA policy Skill: Performs system or network designs that encompass multiple enclaves, to include those with differing data protection/classification requirements Skill: Provides security planning, assessment, risk analysis, and risk management Skill: Recommends system-level solutions to resolve security requirements Skill: Supports the Government in the enforcement of the design and implementation of trusted relationships among external systems and architectures Skill: Participates as the primary security engineering representative on engineering teams for the design, development, implementation, evaluation, and/or integration of secure networking, computing, and enclave environments Skill: Participates as the primary security engineering representative on engineering teams for the design, development, implementation, evaluation, and/or integration of IA architectures, systems, or system components Skill: Supports the Government in the enforcement of the design and implementation of trusted relationships among external systems and architectures Skill: Applies knowledge of IA policy, procedures, and workforce structure to design, develop, and implement secure networking, computing and enclave environments Skill: Supports security planning, assessment, risk analysis, and risk management Skill: Identifies overall security requirements for the proper handling of Government data Skill: Interacts with the customer and other project team members Skill: Participates as a security engineering representative on engineering teams for the design, development, implementation, evaluation, and/or integration of secure networking, computing, and enclave environments Skill: Participates as a security engineering representative on engineering teams for the design, development, implementation, evaluation, and/or integration of IA architectures, systems, or system components

Required: DoD 8570 compliance with IASAE Level 3. CISSP Certification. ISSEP Certification.
