A really interesting role has come up within a Financial Services client who are looking for an experienced Information Risk Security Advisor 

In the role, you will be responsible for leading the third party security capability, performing information security risk assessments upon critical third parties both at the start of the engagement and throughout the supplier relationship. 

You'll work with third parties to identify and remediate risks as required and provide risk reports, with guidance and recommendations, to enable the business to decide if they wish to work with the 3rd parties 

You'll support contractual reviews for new and existing suppliers, and leverage industry best practices (such as ISO27001, ISF SOGP or NIST CSF) and the regulatory landscape (such as GDPR or FCA) to ensure a rounded assessment of the security risk.

This is a unique opportunity to put your own stamp on a role and help shape this capability within the business


You will need to have an Information Security Risk background and past experience of doing 3rd party Risk assessments with both new and existing partners
