There has never been a better time to join APRA. We are building a stronger regulator and strengthening outcomes for the Australian community. A key focus is ensuring that regulated financial institutions are proactively undertaking continual actions to strengthen their cyber resilience and combat cyber-attacks through prevention, detection and response capabilities.
To help us deliver on this strategic priority, we are seeking experienced and passionate technology professionals to join the Technology Resilience team as part of the Operational Resilience unit. The role is focused on assessing and influencing the maintenance of technology resilience (including management of IT risk) by APRA regulated entities (including banks, insurance companies and superannuation) and executing various streams of work to improve cyber resilience of the industry.
In this role you will gain a unique industry-wide perspective and be responsible for providing advice concerning current and emerging technology trends (e.g. cyber, fintech, cloud and AI/ML) and commensurate risk management practices. Participation in the development of prudential standards and guidance also provides an opportunity to influence cross-industry practices.
Key challenges and opportunities:
Desired knowledge and experience:
Demonstrated experience in assessing the management of technology resilience, in an area such as IT organisation & governance, risk management, strategic planning, information security (including cyber), IT operations and service management, project management & application development, data management, business continuity management and disaster recovery, outsourcing, and/or assurance.
Ability to write insightful observations based on the content of qualitative and quantitative information on technology resilience (including cyber) for the consumption of non-specialists is key to success in this role. In addition, high level analysis and problem solving with excellent written and verbal communication skills for advising internal APRA stakeholders and external entities is important. Tertiary qualifications in a field relevant to the role are required.
