Job Description

The mission is to ensure IT compliance with regulators, customers and PartnerRe policies.

We are looking for a Technical IT Compliance and Risk Analyst to join our centralized IT Compliance, Risk Management and Security function. You will be embedded in an international small team whose mission is to ensure that PartnerRe can meet applicable regulatory obligations, satisfy expectations and requirements of PartnerRe’s customers and also meet PartnerRe’s internal Policies and Guidelines.

You will be based in our Zurich (Switzerland), Dublin (Ireland) or Paris (France) office. As an IT Compliance and Risk Analyst, your key role is to understand PartnerRe’s regulatory requirements, key risks, system landscape and controls – you are able to leverage this information to assess new business solutions or third-party services regarding compliance, risk, and security.

You ensure that the appropriate IT controls are applied throughout new system implementation (compliance by design), and all non-compliant findings are remediated in a timely manner to reduce risks.

You perform compliance assurance activities, especially in privileged access management.  You monitor key performance indicators to help to measure the success of PartnerRe’s Cybersecurity progam and aid in decision-making.

You support to secure and harden IT systems across the organization. This includes analysis of existing security configuration baselines, determining appropriate controls and benchmarks, creation of new revisions to existing images and configuration. You will track the compliance of IT systems across PartnerRe through monitoring and auditing.

You respond to security questionnaires PartnerRe received from customers, regulators, and auditors.

You contribute to the identification and assessment of IT and key Cyber security risks and to the performance of compliance gap analysis of new or changed regulations. You contribute to improvements of our IT control framework on a risk-based approach and maintain our GRC system (Governance, Risk & Compliance system). Furthermore, you identify and drive process improvements (lean processes, meeting compliance requirements).


You have a working knowledge of information security frameworks, standards, practices, and regulations (such as ISO/IEC 2700x, NIST, HIPAA, OWASP, SOX, EU GDPR, NYDFS Cyber Regulation)     

You combine this with your IT technical know how and understanding of cyber security risks and controls for cloud based services.  

Ideally, you are experienced in system hardening and maintaining secure systems, and you are familiar with relevant hardening and compliance frameworks or guidelines (e.g. NIST, CIS Benchmarks).

You have strong analytical and problem solving skills and are able to leverage information from various information sources, to create meaningful and relevant summaries that can be understood by all relevant parties. You find the right balance between requirements outside of IT, IT risks, security and costs. You have the ability to answer verbal or written question in a nuanced and subtle way.

You have good collaboration skills with the ability to influence without formal authority. You can communicate well and discuss or review requirements with members from various IT departments (e.g. Data Center Operations, Network, Database, Security, Development, Helpdesk). You can also leverage your strong verbal and written communication skills working with customers, business or other PartnerRe functions like Legal or the Data Privacy Officer.

You have a high degree of accuracy and ability to work under pressure to meet agreed deadlines. You are also able to work autonomously and drive improvements. Project Management skills are an additional asset. You have very good English skills, other languages are a plus.

You have at least 3 - 5 years working experience in IT audit, IT control operations, IT compliance, or IT risk management. You can build trust, and you have a high level of integrity. Ideally, your educational background is in Information Science and Technology, Business Administration, and/or Audit/Assurance related discipline.   Certification in compliance, risk management or security is a plus (e.g. CISA, CRISC, CISSP).

Additional Information

An international environment where you will form part of the worldwide IT compliance and risk function. Opportunities to work on many different projects and continuous improvements related to our control framework. Collaboration and teamwork within and outside the IT department. In our small team, your impact really makes a difference.

PartnerRe provides a working environment in which diversity is valued, where all employees feel welcome, respected, and empowered to perform at their best.  We invite you to learn more about D&I at PartnerRe.
