Position Overview 

The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) is at the forefront of supporting the DoD with the adoption of innovative technologies such as data, analytics, and artificial intelligence to help accelerate predictions, forecasts, and interpretations for both strategic and tactical decisions across the enterprise. These ground-breaking endeavors bring new challenges to the assessment of DoD IT systems that previously did not exist.  

The Security Control Assessor (SCA) plays a pivotal role in comprehensively understanding the cybersecurity posture of a given capability within CDAO. SCAs must go beyond a mere compliance focus on controls to articulate the inherent risks of systems. Success in this position requires expertise in statutory guidance such as the NIST 800 series, DoDI 8500.01, DoD 8140.03, ISO 27001, COBIT, DoD RMF, and Operation Vulcan Logic (OVL), along with current cybersecurity best practices.

The Senior SCA provides authoritative risk determinations and recommendations critical for the Authorizing Official (AO) to grant an Authority to Operate (ATO). Their assessments integrate technical rigor with regulatory compliance, ensuring a robust security posture and informing strategic decision-making.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way.
