A large Federal health-care 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 health-care research mission.
The Information System Security Officer will use a consultative approach to and a deep understanding of current technology and cybersecurity to analyze and consolidate technical requirements, develop data-driven dashboards that meet those requirements, and work collaboratively across various stakeholder groups to drive adoption. With knowledge of data visualization and analysis, the Senior Information System Security Officer will improve the quality of data for decision making, assist in dash-boarding, developing routines to automate and consolidate data collection from data calls, correlate metrics using ServiceNow and routine reporting, and identifying and tracking useful metrics. The Information System Security Officer will also develop and conduct training sessions, capturing and incorporating feedback to improve the quality of provided products over time. This person must be resourceful, detail-oriented, 100% client-focused, and possess a continuing passion for their profession.
