VariQ has an exciting opportunity for a highly qualified System Analyst to support the our client in Washington, DC. The successful candidate will serve as a member of the technical staff supporting our federal client in the cybersecurity domain. The work will focus on federal information and cybersecurity doctrine, including FISMA and the NIST issuances. Our client’s FISMA compliance program is risk-based (in agreement with NIST issuances), with a lifecycle that leads to and sustains ATOs. The successful candidate will be a member of an established and successful team that is already supporting our client. Our expertise, commitment to quality, and insightful consulting has led the client to request even more support from VariQ, and we are looking for two additional members to join our team.
As our Security Analyst, you will be a key technical member of the team, charged with sustaining and evolving the specified elements of the SA&A program, including the processes and tools employed throughout our client’s FISMA compliance program.
The successful candidate will:
Support System Security Planning efforts, including performing updates to system security plans (SSPs), determining the impact of new or updated doctrine upon the SSPs, planning and coordinating responses to these impacts, and ensuring that work is done in agreement with standard templates and guidelines. Support is also required to refine and update these templates and guidelines as changes in doctrine take place (for example, the impending release of NIST SP 800-53 Rev 5). SSP support includes cloud-based systems that rely upon the FedRAMP program and artifacts, and some are in the process of moving into the cloud.
