Everyone's voice matters here. We aren’t looking for passengers, we’re looking for those interested in an opportunity to develop their skills and experience in information security and make a real difference. 

In short, to work here, you need to give a s*** - after all, it could be your data you're protecting.

In return for your commitment, we will develop you personally and professionally in the company of competent colleagues, and you will have a professional development budget at your disposal each year for just that. We also want to recognise and reward your ongoing efforts and have a range of ways of doing that, from an annual bonus, flexible work arrangements, to cake ceremonies (we love cake) or a special night out.  But best of all, we’ll give you a hoodie and are happy for you to dress casually when working in the office.  

Please note, due to client requirements, it is mandatory you hold a security clearance or be willing / eligible to obtain a BASELINE clearance (this includes being an Australian citizen).

A bit more about the role

Trustwave is seeking a versatile Senior Security Advisor who can provide a broad range of advisory services, covering security strategy, governance, risk, audit and compliance topics, as well as possessing enough of a technical background to be able to confidently work within high-complexity environments. Naturally we expect most candidates will be stronger in certain disciplines; and we are happy to look at candidates with varying strengths provided there is a versatility across all. If you like risk analysis vendor security assessment methodologies in the same way most people like donuts or kittens (or both), then we want to hear from you!

Your day to day tasks will vary considerably – from leading and delivering client projects, working with clients / prospective clients and identifying their security needs and whether we can assist, mentoring and coaching more junior staff and more. Typical delivery tasks might include:

  • Undertaking security threat and risk assessments
  • Developing security strategies and roadmaps
  • Developing and reviewing solution / capability design artefacts
  • Developing and refining policies, standards, principles and strategies, and assessing their effectiveness
  • Assisting in the evaluation of emerging technologies, service providers, tools, platforms and applications that are best suited to the specific needs of a given organisation
  • Delivering security architecture advice (particularly surrounding cloud services)

Naturally we expect candidates will be stronger in certain areas; and we are most interested in those that can demonstrate versatility.

A bit more about you

You’ll have:

  • Top-notch written and verbal communication skills
  • An analytical mindset (particularly when it comes to technology and business risk)
  • An ability to deliver multiple consulting projects at a high quality, often under pressure, while also developing strong relationships with our customers
  • Experience with these standards - PCI DSS, PSPF & ISM, PCI, NIST-CSF, ISO 27000

But most of all, you must be passionate about sharing your information security knowledge with everyone around you, particularly your clients, your colleagues and the broader infosec industry – you want to make a change for the better.

We prefer college-educated applicants, but at minimum, high school diploma or equivalent is required for employment.
