Working at the CERT Division provides opportunities to have an impact on cybersecurity. At the CERT Division, you will have the chance to research security vulnerabilities in software products, contribute to long-term changes in networked systems, and develop cutting-edge information and training to help improve security.

The dynamic work environment at the CERT Division comes from our operating principles. At the CERT Division, we

  • advocate an entrepreneurial responsibility to develop new products and services, serve new customers, and increase our impact across the community
  • take informed risks, support each other in taking risks, and then celebrate our successes or learn from our mistakes
  • recognize the value of professional growth and take advantage of opportunities to increase subject matter knowledge and leadership capabilities

We work to ensure that systems management practices and technology, survivability engineering methods, network attack detection tools, and skilled staff are used to resist, recognize, and recover from attacks on networked computer systems. Our work environment is collaborative in nature as staff members work on cross-functional teams within the CERT Division, the Software Engineering Institute, other Carnegie Mellon departments, and across the global community.

Staff members say that one of the most satisfying aspects of working in the CERT Division "is being able to contribute to a global community that can impact the state of internet security."
