  • Provide support to the Global SecOps function in the planning, deployment, and execution of the security business plan
  • Act as a liaison to the business and IT groups and assist them in the implementation of data security, compliance requirements, and information security technologies.
  • Partner with the enterprise architecture team to create, publish, and continuously improve the information security architecture for the enterprise
  • Identify regional information security issues and gaps with the enterprise information security policies, standards, and procedures among employees, contractors, alliances, and other third parties
  • Coordinate, support, track, and challenge regional implementation of global requirements
  • Map regional legal and regulatory requirements and developments onto global policies/procedures and make suggestions where needed
  • Coordinate the execution of security governance and assessment control initiatives and Cybersecurity Awareness Programs, and assist with implementation where needed
  • Perform administrative and reporting duties during crisis management response.
  • Regionally track all legal requirements, regulatory requirements, and developments, and apply to global policies and procedures and suggest changes where needed
  • Serve as the regional point of contact for information security.
  • Execute a robust Cyber Security communications plan
  • Develop and Maintain executive level presentations

What you'll need:

  • 5 + years experience with and a passion for Cybersecurity in a corporate (ideally financial) environment
  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills (English)
  • Organization and attention to detail
  • Positive attitude and ability to collaborate and build consensus, within a variety of functions and experience levels
  • Experience working in a distributed team model
  • Readiness to get hands-on and in the details
  • Data analytics skills preferred
  • Familiarity with technical aspects of cybersecurity
  • Training and presentation skills
  • Curiosity and eagerness for continuous learning
  • Focus on possibilities over difficulties
  • Bachelor’s degree required
