The professionals at the National Security Agency (NSA) have one common goal: to protect our nation. The mission requires a strong offense and a steadfast defense. The offense collects, processes and disseminates intelligence information derived from foreign signals for intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. The defense prevents adversaries from gaining access to sensitive classified national security information.
NSA Cybersecurity mission is to prevent and eradicate threats to National Security Systems and critical infrastructure, with a focus on the Defense Industrial Base. This diverse team of problem solvers collaborate across industry and government to expose foreign cyber espionage, patch critical vulnerabilities, modernize encryption, and issue unique, timely, and actionable cybersecurity guidance. Here, you will have unique access to classified and unclassified data to solve hard problems and secure critical systems. If you enjoy creatively mission outcomes, cybersecurity at NSA is the place for you.
System Vulnerability Analysts identify vulnerabilities and attacks to the design and operation of a system (H/W, S/W, personnel, procedures, logistics, and physical security). They compare and contrast various system attack techniques and develop effective defensive mitigations. Additionally, System Vulnerability Analysts produce formal and informal reports, briefings, and perspectives of actual and potential attacks against the systems or missions being studied.
They perform a broad spectrum of duties that may include:
– critical infrastructure defense
– control system security
– wired and wireless network security
– vulnerability analysis and research
– scalable defensive mitigation development
– perimeter/boundary defense
– malware analysis
– web and cloud security
– mobile network security (LTE, Baseband)
– tailored security solution and methodology automation
– researching emerging network industry technologies and solutions
