Cybersecurity Awareness Forecast

When introducing new technologies, does your organization assess potential future information security risks?

In your organization, forecasting the future is a complex and absolutely critical job. What comes next for Cybersecurity Awareness in Cybersecurity / Awareness / Information / Technology / Risk?

Within the next quarter, driven by internal and external requirements, use the Cybersecurity Awareness Toolkit to grow maturity and adoption of the top forecasted Cybersecurity Awareness breakthrough technologies and applications.

Relevant to solving real problems and exploiting new opportunities:


  • Guard daily management of operational Cybersecurity engineering and Risk Management tasks; provide design, testing, documentation, integration, administration, and management of Cybersecurity mitigation measures that support the implementation of various computer network, systems, and telecommunications efforts.

  • Provide leadership, team coordination, and subject matter expertise in the provision of Information Assurance and Cybersecurity support for artifact generation, requirements analysis, Security Test and Evaluation plans and execution, risk assessments, systems analysis and hardening, incident response and policy analysis, trusted product evaluations, IA program assessments, and security posture presentations.


  • Strategize the security planning, assessment, risk analysis, risk management, certification and awareness activities for system and networking operations and review certification and accreditation (C and A) documentation on completeness and compliance of its content.

  • Collaborate with all cybersecurity teams such as cybersecurity incident response, engineering, compliance, and awareness and other key operating units such as IT, and Information Governance.


  • Ensure proposing, coordinating, implementing, and enforcing information systems security policies, standards, and methodologies, maintain operational security posture for an information system or program to ensure information systems security policies, standards, and procedures are established and followed, assist with the management of security aspects of the information system and evaluate security solutions to ensure they meet security requirements for processing classified information.

  • Devise vulnerability/risk assessment analysis to support certification and accreditation, provide configuration management (CM) for information system security software, hardware, and firmware, manage changes to system and assesses the security impact of those changes, prepare and review documentation to include System Security Plans (SSPs), Risk Assessment Reports, Certification and Accreditation (C and A) packages, and System Requirements Traceability Matrices (SRTMs), and execute policies.


  • Assure the capability to craft, implement, and continuously update a technical security control requirements model supporting enterprise information security policies and standards, enterprise technology strategy, enterprise technology architecture and patterns, information security industry standard methodologies, emerging information security technologies, and relevant laws and regulations.

  • Manage strategically engaging with strategic alliance partners, managed security service providers, independent software vendors, and channel partners.


  • Harden automated discovery, labeling and classification of sensitive data and reducing the risk of intentional or accidental data loss through monitoring, alerting and blocking of unauthorized access and modification in accordance with data protection policies, technical standards and regulatory requirements.

  • Ensure consistent implementation of compliant and cost effective security solutions and ensure adequate personnel and resources are deployed to support contractual requirements, and interface with program management on Cyber Security initiatives and activities.
