Do you want to utilize your Information Systems Security Officer expertise to help NSA strengthen the National Cybersecurity posture; apply here!",

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.

Are you an Information System Security Officer (ISSO)? Do you want to be at the forefront of strengthening our National Cybersecurity posture; do you want to do work you can't do anywhere else? Do you want to help chart the course for NSA's innovative Cybersecurity and help prevent future cyber-attacks against the United States? If so, NSA is the place for you!

Information System Security Officers are responsible for ensuring the appropriate operational security posture is maintained for an information system (IS). ISSO responsibilities support the monitoring of NSA/CSS networks to detect and correct areas of security non-compliance, unmitigated vulnerabilities, and other risks in order to prevent insider threats and adversary activity. ISSOs follow consistent security processes and play a critical role in the Information Systems Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) Program to support the agency's need to continuously operate its information assets within an acceptable security posture and coordinate a proactive response as the threat environment changes.

Information System Security Officers perform a broad spectrum of duties and may:

- perform audits, inspections, and investigations in accordance with government regulations and make appropriate recommendations for improvement
- provide technical support to the security certification and accreditation process
- work collaboratively with stakeholders on the risk assessment process
- coordinate hardware/software/firmware modifications within the Risk Management Framework
- assess the effectiveness of security solutions against present and projected threats
