The Center for Internet Security (CIS) collaborates with the global security community to lead both government and private-sector entities to security solutions and best practices. CIS is an independent, not-for-profit organization. The Operations and Security Services (OSS) Department within CIS is home to the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center® (MS-ISAC®) and the Election Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center® (EI-ISAC®) and provides cybersecurity products and services to over 15,000 State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) organizations across the U.S.
In its role as an industry leader in securing the U.S. election infrastructure, CIS has led the development of a rapid, reliable, and cost-effective approach to verifying the cybersecurity resilience of what is called ‘non-voting election systems’. These are systems used in the election process that do not collect or tabulate actual votes, examples include voter registration systems, electronic poll books, and election management systems. The Rapid Architecture Based Election Technology Verification or RABET-V process includes system development and testing standards which, if satisfied, provides U.S. election offices with confidence about the security and reliability of the particular non-voting election system.
The Vice President for RABET-V will serve in a key leadership role within the OSS management team, overseeing and managing all aspects of the RABET-V program as a distinct P&L within CIS. This includes day-to-day management of the CIS RABET-V operations team, staff support from across CIS, and associated contractors; providing outreach to and recruitment of election technology providers; recruiting and selection of individuals and companies to serve as assessors against the RABET-V standards; and guiding continuous program and process improvements. The Vice President will be the public face of RABET-V, representing the program to the election community, election product vendors, the media, as well as other key stakeholders, facilitating a robust dialogue and incorporating feedback from the larger election community.
The Vice President will be responsible for overall strategy formulation and coordination, strategy execution, and lifecycle management for RABET-V products and services including: product/service evolution; customer and vendor engagement and contract management; profit and loss (P&L) management of the RABET-V service; developing business and pricing models; and ensuring the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
This position will collaborate closely with senior CIS executives and various departments both in and out of OSS, including Project Management, Marketing and Communications, Product Development and Engineering, IT, Information Security, Finance, and Legal in making RABET-V the industry standard for the assessment of non-voting technologies.
