An interim CISO consultant was initially engaged to establish the security foundations, which involved assessing the security policies/practices and cyber framework which has led to the mobilisation of a security framework. This included a ‘lift and shift’ so that the business is cloud native in AWS with no on-premise systems.
With the interim CISO successfully completing the project, the business now requires a permanent CISO to spearhead execution of the Security roadmap in alignment with the wider business initiatives.
Independent working will be required to enhance the cyber security policies and work in a technical hands-on capacity with a continuous improvement mindset and improving the existing functionality with new features.
You will have autonomy and ownership of the security function which will involve being responsible for making decisions on the wider security framework/strategy with an aim to provide stability over the long term. This will be a lean operating model so you will be responsible for the hands-on security toolkit alongside facing off to execs.
