Cybersecurity Architecture Analyst

The Opportunity:

Everyone knows security needs to be "baked in" to a system architecture-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 architecture skills to design and develop secure systems for the Department of Defense? We're looking for an cybersecurity architect who can help create solutions for government that will withstand even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a cybersecurity architecture analyst at Booz Allen, you'll support the development of a client cybersecurity reference architecture and resulting strategy implementation initiatives. You'll work with the client, Booz Allen and our team members to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your client's needs and goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solutions, so you'll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. As a team, we'll take 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 learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of client systems and networks. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges. You'll be able to gain experience in executive-level decision making and strategic implementation while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site and working remotely.

Work with us as we improve system and network security and accountability through cyber security.

Join us. The world can't wait.
