The NASA Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is an independent audit and investigative organization that conducts objective oversight of NASA programs and operations and independently reports to the Administrator, Congress, and the public to further the Agency's accomplishment of its mission. The OIG consists of approximately 200 auditors, analysts, specialists, investigators, attorneys, and support staff at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC, and NASA Centers throughout the U.S.
The Office of Investigations (OI), Computer Crimes Division (CCD), is seeking an experienced and motivated candidate for an exciting full-time permanent position in its Goddard Space Flight Center located in Greenbelt, MD. CCD personnel conduct very complex and sensitive investigations involving a wide range of technical skills sets related to computer security and computer forensics. These investigations, by their very nature, are fast-paced, complex, and often international in scope and effect. In addition, CCD personnel provide critical computer forensics support to an increasing percentage of all the criminal and administrative investigations conducted by the NASA OIG. This support includes the planning and execution of large scale search warrants involving the seizure, proper safeguarding and accurate analysis of very large data sets involving a wide array of IT hardware, firmware, file formats, and operating systems. The ability to work cooperatively and collaboratively with others to further the underlying investigative mission is important.
