The Challenge:

When our country's cybersecurity is on the line, simply reacting is not enough - we need a plan. And when that plan needs to protect enterprise big data systems, we need privacy expertise. That's why we need you, a privacy professional, to be a front-line defender to assess inbound data sets for privacy implications, provide program-level guidance for Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) and other data sharing agreements, and inform technical and process-related updates to the platform's sensitive data handling architecture.

In this role, you'll review the team's Privacy Threshold Analyses (PTA) analyses, manage system Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) and System of Record Notice (SORN) updates, and strategize on key issues, including whether enclave or community space tenets should have their own SORNs. You'll use your knowledge of the Privacy act of 1974 to shepherd users through the nuances of the privacy review process.You'll apply your knowledge of different Sensitive data types, including Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health information (PHI), including non-identifiable and identifiable, Business Sensitive, such as Proprietary, Acquisition Sensitive, and Atomic Energy Act, and Classified data. You'll evaluate how program policies stack up to regulations, best practices, and industry standards. As you guide your client through understanding acceptable risk, you'll help ensure the privacy and security of clients and their dependents. You'll work with the client to help them operate securely as they navigate an evolving IT environment. Join us as we protect the client through privacy policy implementation and maintenance. This position is open to remote delivery anywhere within the U.S., to include the District of Columbia.
