We have an opportunity open for an Infosec expert to join a large organisation in providing secure solutions within the group. Your job as an Infosec Consultant will require you to help the business understand existing risks and work towards reducing them. This position is important because the team are working to be seen as an “enabler” not a “blocker” to business.

Understanding of frameworks is handy but success will ultimately come from a solid understanding of security fundamentals and how they apply to a large group. Our client is undergoing changes in technology and processes so your support and guidance will be critical. Pragmatism and an ability to build relationships with other business units is very important but the technical understanding of how scaled IT can bring risk is needed.
