Cloud Academy is the leading digital skills development platform that enables every enterprise to become a tech company through guided Learning Paths, Hands-on Labs, and Skill Assessment. Cloud Academy delivers role-specific training on leading cloud technologies (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform), essential methodologies needed to operate on and between clouds (DevOps, security, containers), and capabilities that are unlocked by the cloud (big data, machine learning).

Companies like Turner, Cognizant, SAS, and ThermoFisher customize Cloud Academy to contextualize learning and leverage the platform to assign, manage, and measure cloud enablement at scale.

We are looking for a Cyber Security Manager to strengthen our Information Security and Data Protection practices and lead the Security Program. In this role, you will be responsible for defining and executing the company-wide Cybersecurity strategy, working closely with our engineering, product management, HR and legal organizations to guarantee that Cloud Academy is secure for our users, and to lead the company security certification (e.g. ISO 27001, SOC, and CyberEssentials+) initiatives.

You will need to be able to deliver changes using your capability to influence stakeholders at all levels.

Our ideal candidate is humble, equally capable of teaching and learning.
