Position Summary:

SiriusXM is seeking a Chief information Security Officer (CISO) to protect its customers and brand against an evolving and sophisticated set of global threat actors. 

SiriusXM has built its reputation as the world’s largest audio entertainment company and the premier programmer and platform for subscription and advertising-supported audio products, not only by offering high quality at competitive prices, but also by its ability to secure and protect the data assets of its customers, the company and its shareholders. The CISO will be entrusted to define the standard of protection and security for today’s SiriusXM – a company with complex operations across multiple businesses around the world, facing a formidable array of risks and threats to its customers’ data, its assets – physical and digital – and, therefore, its brand.

Duties and Responsibilities:

The CISO will have end-to-end accountability for leading the enterprise information security program, including enterprise IT security, compliance-related activities, broadcast and product security in support of SiriusXM’s diverse businesses. Leveraging leading-edge technology and engineering practices, this leader will bring together software engineering, infrastructure and security disciplines to establish the vision, strategy and architecture to ensure a scalable, flexible and highly resilient technology platform for SiriusXM and its customers across North America. The person in this role will find ways of delivering on this vision without impeding the brand’s best-in-class customer service, pace of modernization or appetite for innovation.

Supervisory Responsibilities:

  • The CISO will lead a security team of more than 25 employees and contract resources, and manage an operating budget in excess of $8M.
  • The CISO should have a balance of strategic leadership and vision, with a passion for being "hands-on" in leading technology – particularly in the areas of data, cloud and security. It is critical for the CISO to possess a track record of successful transformation to establish credibility within the organization.

Minimum Qualifications:

The ideal candidate should be both a teacher and a learner, capable of introducing creativity and leading-edge engineering thinking, while simultaneously demonstrating the humility and willingness to collaborate and learn from the existing organization. SiriusXM requires the CISO to have extensive leadership experience, and to have operated in environments with at least a comparable complexity of threat vectors to SiriusXM
