The Security Engineers are responsible for implementing, configuring and evolving the security technology portfolio. This is a proactive and responsive relationship; the capability to maintain that balance is a key part of the role.
The successful person will have a strong technical background and see the macro view, direction of travel and complexity of the contemporary IT landscape as an opportunity. You will provide solutions that harmonise with IT and create enabling security functions that allow the business to innovate quickly. Solutions will have capacity and flexibility baked in and will integrate well with other security functions.
This role would suit someone who has worked with a diverse set of IT/security products, and across a large on-premise infrastructure managed in house. As the organisation matures, the individual would have a desire to build skills for their team in cloud security technologies to reach AWS security architect associate level, for example.
A strong technical background is required, with in-depth experience in at least one of the following areas, and a working knowledge of the remaining areas:
The candidate should be able to pick up and ingest new technology approaches and make rapid decisions on the best way to use these technology advancements for the betterment of the overall security posture.
The ability to communicate effectively, constructively, confidently and professionally is key to the success in the role, as is the ability to work with IT and Information Security teams and the wider business.
A working knowledge of financial services, the typical business processes involved, together with the threat actors and their relevant tactics, techniques and procedures would be of significant advantage.
