Chief Information Security Officer
Chief Information Security Officer - Leeds - Day Rate - dependant on experience
My client is looking for a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to join.
This role will be practical and won't necessarily be making the technical changes. We want you to spend your time looking at the things we might have missed, explore the market - what's out there, what looks good and what we could be doing. This role is not for someone who will just make proposals of what we aren't doing - we want someone who will ultimately improve what we do!
Crucial for this role is that you're able to work collaboratively with our other teams in the business and potentially external vendors. We want you to engage with us and help us establish what we need to do, so that we will see the biggest benefits.
We do want someone technically minded, but in the sense that you can communicate technical language to those that may not understand. We want someone with a sense of urgency, with a creative mentality, who is practical and innovative and who can think outside the box.
As our Chief Information Security officer (CISO) you'll be working with a virtual team, colleagues in multiple different departments who have a clear technical idea themselves on what we need to do. They'll support you but the main focus of your role is to look at the improvements we can make.
Who you'll be
Instead of looking for people with qualification after qualification, we are looking more at the person and what they can bring in terms of experience and expertise. Qualifications are always a bonus, but we are looking for someone who will come into the business with fresh ideas and a keen eye for detail.
- Some with a strong track record of managing Information Security
- Digital Leadership Skills
- Extensive experience in standards regulating IT businesses
- Ability to influence people, providing direction and building positive working environments
- Must be able to adapt to a fast-moving IT market
- Be able to show passion for technology and safeguarding the business
