Booz Allen Mobile Security Engineer, Steve Rossero, is on a mission. With a love of mobile technology and the drive to keep these devices—and their users—safe, he’s delivering against many of our defense team’s key strategic pillars.
We sat down with Steve to learn more about his work, his enthusiasm for cybersecurity, and the ways in which he’s protecting our warfighters.
Why did you join Booz Allen?
We’re one of the best companies to work for in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Here, we have the chance to support many of the Federal Government’s most critical missions. I’ve always had a passion for mobile technology, and once I realized I could make a career out of securing these devices and using them to solve my clients’ problems, I knew I wanted to do that at Booz Allen.
What do you do?
I’m currently supporting a project for the Department of Defense (DOD). We’re providing policies and security requirements to enable the use of mobile devices and mobile applications. My role allows me to combine my passion for mobile technology and cybersecurity while empowering our warfighters. I feel my work truly helps the DOD complete their missions more effectively and securely.
What do you like best about working here?
The people. My teammates are smart and well respected in their field, and they help me develop my own expertise and further my understanding of our clients’ missions. I also like that we deliver to our clients as a cohesive company, not just as individuals. The ability to reach back into the firm to leverage the vast expertise of my colleagues is truly unmatched by any other organization.
Why should someone join Booz Allen's cyber team?
Cybersecurity is one of the most exciting fields in the IT industry. The threats are constantly evolving, which means you constantly need to learn and grow as a consultant. Supporting defense clients requires cybersecurity to be integrated into every aspect of the mission—and at Booz Allen, it’s our job to help protect them.
