  • Must have current/active TS/SCI clearance with polygraph.
  • Requires a Bachelor's degree (4 years of relevant experience may substitute in lieu of degree) and 10+ years of related experience.
  • Must have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work both independently and within a team-oriented environment.
  • Must have demonstrated ability to work a variety of tasks simultaneously, establish priorities, identify issues, and make sound and timely decisions.
  • Must have Program Security Officer or Area Security Officer experience, or equivalent in more than one security discipline (Operational, Physical, Technical, Personnel, etc).
  • Must have experience developing and implementing security policies.
  • Must have experience working with compartmented programs and/or experience making classification decisions.
