EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.
This position is located in the IT Services Division (MWITS) of the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center. As Information Systems Security Manager, the Lead IT Specialist (INFOSEC) is responsible for leading the structured Security Authorization Processes for all types of information technology solutions supporting Agency/MWEOC assets. Typical areas of responsibility include:
• Leading and conducting security oversight inspections, assessments, and reviews
• Identifying deficiencies and presenting them for consideration as minor, moderate, significant, or material weaknesses
• Project planning, documentation development, tracking of findings, development of remediation strategies and presenting assessment briefings to managers
• Working with program officials and system owners to develop and implement corrective actions
