  • Work closely on PCI audits and ensure the required certification is achieved.

Who you are:

  • A broad range of experience in managing and delivering security solutions and in-depth knowledge of security tooling and software.
  • Demonstrated experience in managing information security operations or incident response activities within a highly complex organization with global stakeholders.
  • Good working knowledge of risk management techniques and in-depth understanding of security principles and methodologies.

  • Experience in Cloud hosting (Azure/AWS) and on-prem technologies with in-depth understanding of associated security management controls.
  • Good understanding of current Cyber security legislation and regulations.
  • Good understanding of Data protection and privacy policies.
  • Successful track record of effective project coordination, prioritization, collaboration, organization, and timely project delivery.
  • Proactive approach in the identification and definition of plans of action to gain efficiencies, reduce complexity and other overall opportunities for improvement.

Nice to have:

  • Industry recognized security certifications such as, but not limited to CISSP & CISM
