Associate Principal Security Architect – Product Security

India - Bengaluru IT Capability Centre

Our Cyber Security Team 

It’s no secret that our intellectual property is critical to our success. In order to secure our ideas and designs, our customer and employee personal data, and to protect operations from cyber-crime, Dyson’s global Cyber Security and IT Risk group works effectively to keep our secrets secret and secure our crown jewels, using advanced technologies to stay one step ahead of the game. 


We have a continuous focus on transforming and managing all aspects of security - including architecture, engineering, technology risk management, cyber operations, end user security and project delivery. We invest heavily in new security capabilities (technology, processes and people) and leverage our strong cyber ecosystems to tackle future threats. 

Product Design, Manufacturing, Supply Chain, eCommerce and Enterprise IT Systems are at the beating heart of Dyson’s cyber defence priorities. We play a key role in ensuring the successful design and delivery of exciting new business and security projects, and that our controls and security platforms remain effective and compliant.  Furthermore, our cyber operations capabilities are delivered on a global 24x7 basis from our strategic locations across the US, UK / Europe, India, Singapore and China. 

As Dyson products become ever more complex, deploy new technologies and innovative architectures, and connect to more complex ecosystems, they face an ever-evolving cyber risk landscape, with a need for continual review and vigilance to address emerging new threats.

The Security Architecture and Engineering team plays a key role, with responsibility for the design and engineering of our core enterprise and Operational Technology cyber protection technologies – along with the actual design of the security elements of business and IT projectsWe also play a critical role in assuring the security and compliance of all Dyson’s existing and new products.


Alongside technical expertise in the relevant areas of Security Architecture, the role requires strong business partnering and relationship building skills. It involves working closely with project teams in business areas to develop practical solutions to mitigate business risks. There’s ample scope to share and build on existing technical expertise, and we invest heavily in the development and training of our team.

We're committed to our campus culture and don’t look to offer a regular hybrid working arrangement. This helps us to achieve the spirit of Dyson – collaboration, creativity, and inventiveness – in our inspiring, social, and dynamic workspaces.
