Reporting to the CIO, the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is the Head of Internal Tech security, driving the IT security strategy and implementation forward whilst protecting the business from security threats and cyber-hacking. Operational compliance to all ISO and other standards and regulations are included. This is a senior role, with a global people management responsibility covering cyber and information security, compliance and business continuity planning. Given the rapid growth of the business, its entrepreneurial culture and the fast-changing requirements of its client base, there is a need for a high level of adaptability, with a focus on training and communication and parameter protection.
The CISO is a business leader, and should have a track record of competency in the fields of information and cyber security, security architecture and risk management and compliance.
The CISO position requires a leader with sound knowledge of business management and security in the digital world. The CISO will proactively work with business units and ecosystem partners to implement practices that meet agreed-on policies and standards. The CISO understands and oversees security and risk management activities to ensure the achievement of business outcomes where business processes depend on technology.
The CISO should understand and articulate the impact of risk on business and be able to communicate this to senior stakeholders for them to appropriately balance this with their risk appetite and appropriate investment levels.
The CISO must be knowledgeable about how security supports business outcomes for internal and external business environments to ensure that information and digital production systems are maintained in a fully functional, safe and secure mode, while ensuring that no harm comes to people and the environment. The ideal candidate must be a builder of consensus and bridges between business and technology. He or she needs to be an integrator of people, process and technology.
