SAIC has a contingent job opportunity for a Red Team Lead (Cybersecurity) to support the Naval Information Forces Headquarters (NAVIFOR HQ).
The scope of the position includes network security engineering, testing, assessment, analysis, and documentation of complex networks designed to provide boundary defense from sophisticated threat actors. Candidates must have a strong understanding of modern network technologies, protocols (e.g. TCP, SMTP, DNS, SSH, etc.), and security practices. Candidates must be well versed in common network scanning tools that support network discovery, compliance reporting, and vulnerability assessment. Candidates must well versed in reviewing, analyzing, and commenting on secure network design, federal security and operational requirements (e.g. NIST SP 800-53r4, CNNSI 1253, etc.). Candidates must be able to adopt a threat actor’s perspective when performing design assurance to ensure these systems are not only compliant, but offer effective security measures against advanced threats. Candidates must be able to communicate plans, findings, and analysis effectively through verbal and written means.
This position is contingent upon contract award and will be located in Suffolk, VA.
