    NIST SP 800-53 & CISSP certification are crucial for the project.

    This candidate will be assisting the company in developing a questionnaire based on NIST SP800-53 controls and use that to conduct gap assessment. Even if the candidate is not fully versed with NIST SP 800-53, he must have good understanding of the security controls required for commonly known risks. 

    Candidate having good security knowledge and strong communication skills is critical – he/she will be need audit/validate our business units on the existence or lack of security controls and that conversation will only be productive if the candidate has understand responses from technical teams and figure out what next to ask to get full details and determine risks. A questionnaire only gives us initial view into the technical details – we cannot develop an ultra-comprehensive questionnaire that anticipates all questions and answers… so need knowledge & ability to ask questions based on information provided.

    • Ideally solid knowledge of NIST SP 800-53 & SP 800-30
