  • Operate automated web application vulnerability scanning and situational awareness tools including but not limited to Acunetix, WebInspect, Netsparker, and Expanse eXpander.
  • Analyze findings and develop risk mitigation techniques to address weaknesses.
  • Validate the remediation of findings reported by system owners.  
  • Advise system owners on strategies for remediating vulnerabilities when necessary.
  • Evaluate systems and applications for compliance with applicable DOD, DON, and other government IT Security Policies (i.e. Secure Technical Implementation Guides).
  • Provide reports detailing findings from each manual pen-testing campaign.
