General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) is seeking a Security Engineer with specific expertise in cloud services.
The key position will support GDIT’s established enterprise cloud common shared services offering in a multi-cloud environment. GDIT will serve as an Enterprise Cloud Common Shared Services Provider to takeover, expand, and continuously improve upon cARMY cloud common shared services in order to reduce complexity, increase security, eliminate duplication of effort, and increase Army-wide adoption of cloud computing technologies.
Cloud common shared services are those services that support application operations in the cloud, such as domain name services (DNS), network time protocol (NTP), remote access, file transfer, directory services, authentication and access, etc. The services can be provided by the Government or by contractors but must be approved for operation by a Government Authorizing Official (AO) using the DoD Risk Management Framework (RMF). These services are provided by cARMY for all tenant projects, applications, and services of the cARMY hosting environment or any other approved cloud hosted project and are not managed by the application owner; however, the application owner can inherit controls from the environment Authorization to Operate (ATO).
GDIT is seeking a Security Engineer with experience deploying and operating in both AWS and Azure within DoD cloud frameworks. Architects, engineers, designs, implements, and maintains cloud security tools and solutions for cloud environments. Integrates multiple third-party tools and native CSP services to meet cyber security requirements. Identifies security issues and risks, and develops mitigation plans for cloud implementations. Manages assessment and mitigation of system security risks, validates security requirements definition and analysis, and establishes system security designs. Ensures adherence to NIST Cyber Security Framework and NIST 800-37 Risk Management Framework for Federal Information Systems. Implements and integrates security designs in cloud solutions and services. Supports system certification and accreditation and secure system operation. Shapes technical solutions to maximize cybersecurity defenses and monitoring capabilities, and synthesizes solution designs and establishes architectural principles. Incorporates architectural and cloud security principles into system design standards.
For this effort, GDIT will maintain and continually refine and enhance existing enterprise common shared services; develop and maintain new enterprise common shared services; identify, test, document, and inculcate common processes, tools and procedures to minimize burden on application owners working through the RMF process. Implied in this effort is the need for the continuous integration, testing, deployment, and updating of the environment’s ATO. GDIT will utilize agile-aligned service delivery models and Open Source and/or universally accessible Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) licensable software, based on Open Standards to build, deploy, operate and maintain enterprise common shared services for impact level (IL) 2/4/5/6.
