A World-Changing Company
At Palantir, we’re passionate about building software that solves problems. We partner with the most important institutions in the world to transform how they use data and technology. Our software has been used to stop terrorist attacks, discover new medicines, gain an edge in global financial markets, and more. If these types of projects excite you, we'd love for you to join us.
The Role
Palantir relies on an extensive supply chain of third-party suppliers, vendors, and partners to fulfill our mission. This supply chain may introduce substantive information security risks that could adversely impact Palantir, and our ability to operate globally. As an Information Security Analyst, you will be responsible for developing, driving, and managing the supply chain information security program to identify, mitigate, and respond to these risks.
In this role, you’ll be partnering with stakeholders across the business to ensure mission success. You will conduct deeply technical risk analysis and assessments of third-party vendors, suppliers, and partners. Where risks are identified, you will respond through proposal and implementation of mitigative controls. You will continually re-evaluate risks to our supply chain through monitoring of industry breaches and security incidents, changes to third-party security posture, and emerging adversary tactics. You will coordinate with information security personnel to respond to third-party security incidents, breaches, and remediation operations. Your work will directly address external risks which threaten our ability to solve the world’s hardest and most impactful problems. 

Core Responsibilities

  • Assess, manage, and report on overall information security risk to Palantir from our supply chain.
  • Conduct discrete and periodic risk assessments and reviews of third-party suppliers, vendors, and partners.
  • Identify, propose, and implement mitigative controls to address supply chain risks or security deficiencies.
  • Maintain awareness of emerging information security risks and trends, and their impact to our overall supply chain.
  • Identify and incorporate process and technology improvements to our third-party vendor security and supply chain management program. 

What We Value

  • A deep understanding of information security controls - including data protection, access controls, policies and standards, proactive security, reactive security, application security, and related measures.
  • Experience performing third-party or supply chain risk assessments or evaluations.
  • Experience with information security and risk management frameworks, standards, and certifications (e.g. ISO-27001, NIST 800-53, NIST 800-171, CMMC, SOC2).
  • Strong technical decomposition and analytical skills, with the ability to identify supply chain risks based on industry security breaches and incidents.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication and organization skills.
  • Strong desire to own impactful security outcomes in a fast-paced, dynamic working environment.
