    Summary

    Enterprise Services (ES) is a new, innovative organization being stood up at the Department of Commerce. Recognizing a serious and growing need for substantial improvements to human resources, acquisition, and information technology services, leadership and subject matter experts across the Department determined that it was time to do business differently.

    Modeling the organization after prior successes of Fortune 500 companies, state and local governments, and a handful of Federal organizations, ES was designed as a hybrid of managed services from vendor partners and oversight of services and service delivery by highly-skilled and highly-motivated federal staff. ES is not a consolidation of existing resources and processes. Rather, it is an innovative and reimagined blueprint for delivering mission-enabling services to our clients.

    This position is located in the Office of the Director, Information Technology Enterprise Services in the Department of Commerce. The incumbent will serve as an Information Technology Specialist (INFOSEC) in the IT Enterprise Services Division. Providing guidance to the System Owner on implementing Information Security and overseeing the development and maintenance of security documentation. He/she will ensure security policy is implemented in IT project and that all security documents, assessments, test parameters, elements, findings, and evaluations are coordinated with appropriate Office of Cyber Security staff and providing direct support as needed.
