Ensure the set of system security planning product(s) needed for the end-to-end project requirements are sufficient. 


Identify and assess engineered measures to ensure that vulnerabilities are identified, mitigated, and appropriately controlled to prevent exploitation through design, implementation, verification, and operations. Leverage knowledge in implementation details to evaluate flight HW and SW for actual and potential vulnerabilities. 


Coordinate cybersecurity assessments across other specialized cybersecurity teams.
