Posting Address

Position Overview

Secure access to information assets is critical to achieve business objectives. The CISO is responsible for establishing and maintaining the information security program to ensure that information assets and associated technology, applications, systems, infrastructure and processes are adequately protected in the digital ecosystem in which we operate. The CISO is responsible for identifying, evaluating and reporting on legal and regulatory, IT, and cybersecurity risk to information assets, while supporting and advancing business objectives.

The CISO position requires a visionary leader with sound knowledge of business management and a working knowledge of cybersecurity technologies covering the corporate network as well as the broader digital ecosystem. The CISO will proactively work with business units and ecosystem partners to implement practices that meet agreed-on policies and standards for information security. He or she should understand IT and must oversee a variety of cybersecurity and risk management activities related to IT to ensure the achievement of business outcomes where the business process is dependent on technology. The CISO will be responsible for implementing and running the enterprise information security program.

The CISO should understand and articulate the impact of cybersecurity on (digital) business and be able to communicate this to the board of directors and other senior stakeholders. He or she serves as the process owner of the appropriate second-line assurance activities not only related to confidentiality, integrity and availability, but also to the safety, privacy and recovery of information owned or processed by the business in compliance with regulatory requirements. The CISO understands that securing information assets and associated technology, applications, systems and processes in the wider ecosystem in which the organization operates is as important as protecting information within the organization's perimeter. A key element of the CISO's role is working with executive management to determine acceptable levels of risk for the organization.

The CISO must be knowledgeable about both internal and external business environments and ensure that information systems are maintained in a fully functional and secure mode and are compliant with legal, regulatory and contractual obligations. The ideal candidate is a thought leader, a builder of consensus and of bridges between business and technology. He or she is an integrator of people, process and technology. While the CISO is the leader of the information security program, he or she must also be able to coordinate disparate drivers, constraints and personalities, while maintaining objectivity and a strong understanding that cybersecurity is foundational for the organization to deliver on its business goals and objectives. Ultimately, the CISO is a business leader, and should have a track record of competency in the field of information security and/or risk management, with seven to 10 years of relevant experience, including five years in a significant leadership role.
