This role will not only requires implementing security safeguards but also training and educating employees. With the majority of cyber security incidents being the result of employee error, it's important that a CISO is looking both internally and externally for potential threats.


What You'll Do...

The CISO’s responsibilities range from hiring IT personnel to providing the leadership and policy direction required to protect the company from emerging threats and maintain the IT internal infrastructure. This role also directly manages IT team leaders to ensure they are prioritising the right aspects of a strategy at the right time.

The role will involve implementing company-wide corporate security policies, standards and procedures and making sure staff across the board comply on a day-to-day basis. This includes conversing regularly with senior management and employees to make sure all IT security policies are deployed, revised, sustained and overseen effectively.

Creating a process for on-going IT infrastructure audits and assessments for security risks. You will be expected to continuously assess vulnerabilities and find fixes before an incident occurs. Responsible for IT infrastructure (internal tools and governance).

You will develop policies around security incidents and create an Emergency Response Team to act as and when a security breach is looming or has happened. Moveover, you will oversee the development of a disaster recovery plan to allow for business continuity post-cyber-attack.


Responsibilities include:

Security operations: Real-time analysis of immediate threats, and triage when something goes wrong

Cyber-risk and cyber intelligence: Keeping abreast of developing security threats, and helping the board understand potential security problems that might arise from acquisitions or other big business moves

Data loss and fraud prevention: Making sure internal staff doesn't misuse or steal data

Security architecture: Planning, buying, and rolling out security hardware and software, and making sure IT and network infrastructure is designed with best security practices in mind

Identity and access management: Ensuring that only authorized people have access to restricted data and systems

Program management: Keeping ahead of security needs by implementing programs or projects that mitigate risks — regular system patches, for instance

Investigations and forensics: Determining what went wrong in a breach, dealing with those responsible if they're internal, and planning to avoid repeats of the same crisis

Governance: Making sure all of the above initiatives run smoothly and get the funding they need — and that corporate leadership understands their importance

Leverage global: Tools and techniques to consistently capture, model and analyze security architecture options.

Security Solutions: Work with Product Team to support the deployment cybersecurity solutions in alignment with business needs, architectural principles, security protection requirements, and required functionality throughout the systems development life cycle.
