  • Document assessment results and report findings for remediation tracking
  • Communicate security recommendation to the business requester
  • Provide appropriate risk mitigating steps as approval conditions if necessary
  • Find opportunities for improving program and review process

About you:

  • Experience assessing third-party security risk and performing security assessments
  • Knowledge of information security concepts and theory, and the application of such through technical and non-technical methods
  • Understanding of a wide variety of IT risk domains related to confidentiality, integrity, and availability
  • Ability to interface, influence and communicate (written and verbally) with all levels of management, stakeholders and internal customers
  • Strong analytical, collaboration, organizational, time management, and project management skills
  • Ability to understand and run the implications and impacts of technical issues and processes in the context of information security and risk management
  • Strong initiative and ability to manage priorities and work successfully with minimal direction
