A large Federal healthcare agency is implementing a risk-based approach to cybersecurity that creates unity of effort across 20+ cybersecurity projects that are currently separate. One of the key challenges is defining an effective cybersecurity approach that works enterprise-wide, implementing multiple new cybersecurity tools, and driving the adoption of best practices, and data-driven processes across the stakeholder groups. The overall approach must continue to support the organization even as it adopts new technologies – like Cloud, High Performance Computing, and Machine Learning – to support its healthcare research mission.
The Technical Project Manager will use a consultative approach to build and maintain relationships with senior government staff and contractors, and will apply a deep understanding of current technology and cybersecurity to identify and elevate implementation challenges, define and gain consensus on courses of action, and manage execution risk. The Technical Project manager will also drive collaboration and thought leadership, to improve adoption and identify efficiencies. This person must be resourceful, detail-oriented, 100% client-focused, and possess a continuing passion for their profession.
