You will be engaged with customers to help assess their cloud security posture and to ensure any subsequent cloud design and build is appropriately secured.

Extensive knowledge of a) security related legislation, regulations, and standards b) MS Azure, AWS and Google cloud platforms and c) cloud native and non-native security tools is critical.
