Cybersecurity Specialist – Missouri 911 Service Board

A safe and secure 911 system in Missouri is one of the most basic building blocks upon which our state's future rests. To assist in local and statewide 911 efforts, the Missouri 911 Service Board (MO911SB) was established on August 28, 2017. In 2019, the Missouri 911 Service Board began with an overarching goal to advance 911 systems in Missouri towards Next Generation 911. The Missouri 911 Service Board looks to expand upon the Missouri Cybersecurity Program which is built upon three main components: Intelligence, Coordination, and Outreach to focus solely on the 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and their advancing technology.

The Missouri 911 Service Board is seeking a Cybersecurity Specialist. This position will serve as a cybersecurity resource for the Missouri 911 Service Board, Board Committees, Missouri 911 Associations, Missouri PSAPs, public/private partners, and other 911 and Emergency Communication partners by identifying, creating, and sharing relevant and actionable cyber intelligence and information, through assessments, bulletins, briefings and/or investigative support, as well as training.  The cybersecurity specialist performs a wide range of analytical functions including research, analysis, and reporting on criminal and terrorism-related vulnerabilities, risks, and threats posed by cyber actors to the 911 infrastructure in Missouri including PSAPs and associated public/private partners. This position works in developing, supporting, and conducting statewide liaison and outreach activities as they relate specifically to Cybersecurity and protection-related threats and vulnerabilities.  The Cybersecurity Specialist will provide briefings, reports, training and educational materials to government and private sector stakeholders related to cybersecurity, protection, and vulnerabilities.

In addition to challenging work that makes a difference, the Cybersecurity Specialist will receive benefits including paid vacation and sick leave.

This is currently a federal grant-funded position. Positions funded in whole by external grants are subject to immediate termination if the grant funding ceases. If the position remains viable, in whole or in part, despite the loss of grant funds, the Board, in its discretion, may reduce the position to less than full-time. The decision to terminate or reduce a position is not grievable.
