Job Description

Security Architect (Security Policy)
Our client, a leader in their industry, has an excellent opportunity available for a Security Architect to work on a nine-month contract position in downtown Atlanta, GA. The pay rate is in the $75/hour to $85/hour range. Available for w-2 only.  
With the threat landscape moving at the speed of technology, our client is focused on properly securing its systems and applications. One of the main solutions is the use of a new application they are building which will be an online platform that provides users with standardized lists of security policy requirements that are specifically applicable to their technical workloads. This application will soon expand into an end-to-end solution that will automatically inject security policy into the Software Development Lifecycle as well as provide automated tooling recommendations and check for compliance. To achieve the future vision, this initiative requires a security architect that has strong knowledge of security policies and experience with implementing security compliance. The security architect will be responsible for translating complex security policy bases into manageable requirements than an average user can quickly grasp. The app will provide a sort of automated questionnaire that project leads can answer.  It will simplify and translate (return) the Security parameters and requirements that the individual project will need to meet standards. (For example, the app will let them know what security requirements need to be met and will also tell them what internal security tools are available for their users to utilize and meet/satisfy the internal security requirements.)  This web app will improve security adherence for all new projects within the client by providing a tailored list of security requirements for any users utilizing the cloud for projects. The output will be a very clear and organized list that shows security requirements and avoids the unnecessary informational/supplemental security info that usually confuses users. It provides actionable items (for example Architecture suggestions, lists of security tools preferred, etc.) that will cover security requirements.
