This role requires a strong technical background coupled with an in-depth knowledge of security systems and relevant regulations and legislation to assist in maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the company`s information, products and systems.

To be considered you must have strong Information Assurance experience, end-to-end security project management experience and a good level of PCI & Data Protection knowledge.
