CRP is a transformation programme focused on comprehensive change over 10 years to achieve material risk reduction against the unacceptable Cyber Security Defence Board risks and fix known cyber gaps and vulnerabilities. The aim of the programme is to build resilience into the delivery of Defence Outcomes. A constant assessment of risk and continual assurance ofcapabilities will inform priorities and drive focus to the right places. It is important that plans evolve to counter, and rapidly recover from, an effective cyber-attack. The focused pursuit of experimentation and innovation will underpin a ‘learn fast’ and ‘fail fast' approach which will allow Defence to securely adopt disruptive technologies that allow us to compete decisively with our adversaries. The aim of the programme is to engage with colleagues across Defence and Government, alongside those from science, technology, industry, academia, and with our partners/allies around the world, to deliver this ambitious and exciting agenda. Cyber resilient Defence is fundamental to delivering the singular secure, modern digital backbone this domain. Future success will be shaped by how Defence prepares itselfto protect against, and respond to, cyber adversaries.
The Solutions-Architect will assist in the analysis of and response to Cyber Vulnerabilities within MOD. They supply technical resource to numerous cyber risk interventions. The interventions are requested by the business and must be delivered at pace. They vary in size and complexity and could include the provision of hardware, resources, or services. The Solutions Architect will be required to engage with a wide range of stakeholders including senior MOD staff, technical experts and representatives from across the business functions, such as Commercial. Therefore, they must be capable of confident, clear, and effective communication at all levels and with stakeholders with differing technical and programmatic backgrounds. The role will be to engage with stakeholders to help analyse and visualise complex security problems, identify suitable solutions and then support their delivery. This role is pivotal to the reduction of MOD’s cyber risk in a high-tempo and highly agile environment. The successful candidate will need excellent analytical skills which will assist in the translation of challenging technical issues for stakeholders who may not be technical experts. They will be required to liaise with other business functions in the development of business cases and supporting the procurement processes, therefore a foundation of financial and commercial awareness is beneficial.
Candidates must be SC cleared UK nationals.
Please note: We cannot accept any applications from candidates currently working on the Aurora framework unless the contract is due to finish within the next month.
