Job Description:

Why choose between doing meaningful work and having a fulfilling life? At MITRE, you can have both. That's because MITRE people are committed to tackling our nation's toughest challenges-and we're committed to the long-term well-being of our employees. MITRE is different from most technology companies. We are a not-for-profit corporation chartered to work for the public interest, with no commercial conflicts to influence what we do. The R&D centers we operate for the government create lasting impact in fields as diverse as cybersecurity, healthcare, aviation, defense, and enterprise transformation. We're making a difference every day-working for a safer, healthier, and more secure nation and world. Our workplace reflects our values. We offer competitive benefits, exceptional professional development opportunities, and a culture of innovation that embraces diversity, inclusion, flexibility, collaboration, and career growth. If this sounds like the choice you want to make, then choose MITRE-and make a difference with us. Department Summary: The CI Assessments, Analytics, and Resiliency department is focused on defending and strengthening our nation's critical infrastructure. We support a full range of defensive operations and activities including threat-informed risk assessment and mitigation, adversary hunting, and detection engineering with a special focus on operational technology (OT). It is the expertise in OT and knowledge of threats and security controls and technique that differentiates the department's work from traditional information technology cybersecurity. The department also brings this specialized knowledge to other domains of security and safety engineering including resilience engineering and infrastructure susceptibility assessments. The department is continuously developing, refining, and tailoring capabilities to meet the needs and special requirements and constraints when working with operational technologies in critical infrastructure. The department moves the state of the art in securing CI by sharing our thought leadership both within and outside of MITRE via TEMs, conferences, presentations, and publications. This is how the CI Assessments, Analytics, and Resiliency department helps create a world with safe and resilient cyber infrastructure. MITRE is a not-for-profit focused on impact, not revenue.
