“If you build it, he will come”, a classic quote from Field of Dreams which for generic building architecture is completely true. The same can’t be said for an IT Security Architect. Outsiders will still want to come, but that defence system you’ve built up, that IR you’ve prepared, that’ll keep them at bay and that’s exactly what we want from an IT Security Architect (as well as more Kevin Costner quotes!)

This role is all about finding that candidate who is InfoSec focussed; you may have come from an infrastructure background, you may be a penetration tester, it makes no difference to us but we do want someone to be head, shoulders, knees and toes of security within the company. The successful candidate will be the voice of best security practice, involved (from a security point of view) on major projects, help with 3rd party integrations and help to come up with security related initiatives within the company.

In order to be considered for the role, you will need to be able to demonstrate the below skills;
 A guru-like knowledge of Information Security; from port numbers, to current threats, to vulnerability management, to specific products, to the inner workings of SIEM solutions.
 In-depth knowledge of GDPR (not that word again!) legislation, PCIDDS, encryption, cryptography, authentication and identity technologies.
 The ability to engage with stakeholders, 3rd parties, vendors on all projects, to help them understand the security needs.
 Ability to define the whole security architecture from high level to low level design; including testing capabilities, cost modelling, deployment etc.
 Experience securing cloud environments (Public or Private) and an understanding of other emerging security technologies for mobile and cloud.
 An analytical approach to work with the ability to evaluate and influence projects with a security perspective whilst supporting the goals of the company.

If you can do all the above, have a desire to work on the global security architecture, know who Kevin Costner is, then please get in touch by either giving Jon Stock a call on 02920 252500 or apply via email.
