This is an exceptional opportunity to take your career higher while enjoying the camaraderie of a highly talented team and a dynamic, flexible and stimulating environment where work-life balance is actively promoted.

The Role

Here's an exceptional opportunity to demonstrate your experience in consulting to projects and providing subject matter expertise for incident security incidents and breaches.

Responsibilities include:

  • Design the Cyber Security Architecture framework and reference architecture to ensure sustainability and efficiency of the underlying architecture and platforms
  • Ensure the framework aligns with IT and Information Management Strategy, governance frameworks and overall architecture, and where required, adhere to any legislative and regulatory requirements
  • Provide guidance and oversight of activities related to information security services and technologies across the architecture landscape, including Cloud Computing, Identity & Access Management, Threat detection, Incident Response, Security Testing, and attack detection & monitoring.
  • Provide assurance and consultative services to IT and the business, including participating in application and infrastructure projects to undertake security assessments and provide security-planning advice
  • Working with the IT Strategy & Architecture function, develop and maintain a security architecture process that enables the development and implementation of security solutions and capabilities that are clearly aligned with business, technology and threat drivers
  • Develop security strategy plans and roadmaps based on sound enterprise architecture practices
  • Track developments and changes in the digital business and threat environments to ensure that they're adequately addressed in security strategy plans and architecture artifacts
  • Validate IT infrastructure and other reference architectures for security best practices and recommend changes to enhance security and reduce risks, where applicable
  • Actively contribute and deliver against cyber and information security initiatives and activities outside of the immediate architecture responsibilities (eg, policy and standard design, and security awareness and education activities.)

  • At least five years of experience specialising in aspects of IT security.
  • Outstanding understanding of Managed Security Solutions.
  • Strong technical knowledge of Cisco Network Products.
  • Extensive experience in the development, deployment and maintenance of security policies, procedures, standards and strategies.
  • Brilliant communication skills to liaise and assist with reviews from internal and external security auditors.

About you

You are passionate about IT security and bring an enviable combination of experience and exceptional analytical skills to a role. You are committed to keeping up to date with the latest security threats - and solutions, and you can readily discuss your ideas with a diverse and talented team of IT professionals. You're a self-starter who can work independently though you're equally comfortable contributing to a team environment. Your creative flair provides an eye for innovative solutions, and you have the business know-how to recognise what is practical and cost-effective. Your exceptional communication skills allow you explain complex ideas to a diverse range of colleagues.

What's on offer?
