Who You'll Work With

The Cloud Authorization Engineer role supports complex, multi-disciplinary projects. You will support multiple projects with internal customers and will be a critical component of ushering documentation deliverables through an entire project lifecycle. This includes self-management skills to maintain project schedules, identifying risks and clearly communicating goals to project partners.

Your projects may span offices, time zones and hemispheres, and it will be your job to communicate clearly on the progress of project documentation deliverables and meeting ATO deadlines. You will have multiple ATO’s that you will be working with and coordinating on across the Cisco organization and should be able to task between, and understand each authorization boundary.

In this role, you are responsible for ensuring each ATO that the Cisco Global Certification Team (GCT) is aligned with relevant US Federal Government security requirements (e.g. FISMA, FedRAMP, DoD, etc.). You will work closely with engineering, security, compliance, internal audit, and the project management office as well as other partners, such as accrediting agencies and customers to analyze, define, and verify present and future compliance solutions and acceptance in the marketplace. You will work with US Government accreditation bodies and partners to understand compliance requirements mapping these requirements to each ATO’s current and future suite of offerings in an effort to determine fit and assess our compliance readiness. You will perform, on an ongoing basis, quality reviews, rewrites, and editing of a wide-range of IT security domain related documentation, and assist in developing and maintaining Cisco cloud security guidelines, standards, and policies.

What You'll Do

  • You will work with multiple partners (internal and external) across product lines to coordinate with teams around each FISMA/FedRAMP/DoD authorization.
  • You will provide feedback for reports that track planning, scheduling, issues, risks, and overall status.
  • You will assist with technical issues or advise on control requirements as needs arise.
  • You will translate complex concepts and solutions into multiple types of documents (requirements, compliance, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), test results, etc.).
  • You will implement and maintain Cisco cloud tooling in ITAM and support framework adaptation.

Who You Are

You will be a key player in all authorization documentation standards and Cisco-wide implementations and support of those standards for cloud offerings.

Consulting with the Cisco GCT, you should have a deep understanding of the FedRAMP and DoD cloud authorization processes, as well as the NIST and FISMA domains, and should have a basic competency within each of these areas.
