Job Description

Oshkosh Corporation owns significant assets in the form of information. These assets could lose substantial value if they are improperly disclosed, and similar disclosure of other assets could result in significant harm to the organization. This role will support the Global Information Security Office mission by helping to appropriately preserve the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information, helping the business understand and balance risk against business needs, and acting as the organization's mechanism to appropriately identify, select, maintain, and improve cybersecurity controls by using a risk-based approach coupled with continuous improvement. Technology is advancing, connection mechanisms are growing, and consumers and hackers are becoming more sophisticated.

Security needs to be built into each of these growing technologies. Focused on providing wide variety of testing tools and services to the product development teams to harden our connected vehicles from cybersecurity threats, the IoT Cybersecurity Architect will have advanced knowledge in cybersecurity testing (e.g. fuzz testing), vehicle electrical and communication architectures and embedded systems design. The ideal candidate will have outstanding security design analytical skills and the ability to work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment.
