We are hiring for an individual that has experience with Security (RMF) and Linux and Bash as well as Windows Powershell scripts, and XML. In addition the succesful candidate will have experience with Tenable.audit file.
This is a hands-on, Risk Management Framework (RMF), Technical security assessor / analyst (SCA) position requiring intermediate knowledge of Windows Server 2008/2012/2016; Red Hat Linux; VMWare; SQL Server; Oracle, and other administrative and security aspects of workstation and enterprise server technology. Support the security assessment of globally deployed departmental systems through hands-on execution of customer-supplied tools and best-practice techniques, including manual and automated verification scans against defined component baselines.
The SCA will assist with determining the security and configuration status of a variety of system components including: system documentation, Linux and Windows operating systems; SQL Server and Oracle databases; system support components; VMWare implementations. There are also occasional “one-off” components requiring development of baseline security configurations, hence technical curiosity and a desire to learn and innovate are beneficial.
For Assessment & Authorization purposes, validate the components and configurations of departmental systems deployed both globally and domestically. Identify misconfigurations, non-compliances, and anomalies which are relevant to FISMA assessment practices. Coordinate system assessment and findings to the Security Analyst for inclusion in the Security Assessment Report and participate in findings meetings with relevant system stakeholders.
Using the NIST Risk Management Framework and the NIST 800-53 security control catalog, map system and configuration anomalies to specific NIST security controls, along with specific remediation. Write accurate, cogent and defensible descriptions of security configuration status as well as succinct and defensible suggested remediation.
