​Our Client

Our client is currently seeking a highly experienced and dynamic Information Security Manager to join their global organisation based out of their London headquarters. This is a key strategic role that requires a seasoned security professional to lead their organisation's information security strategy and practices.

Main Duties

As an Information Security Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring that their information security posture is compliant with all relevant industry regulations and best practices. You will be leading a growing team of Information Security and Cybersecurity specialists to manage business and compliance risks, protect business-critical processes and applications, and continuously develop and mature their information security architecture.

Your responsibilities will include developing and maintaining all Information Security policies, procedures, relevant standards and supporting documentation. You will also deliver information security assessments for clients and third parties, chair internal and client-facing security working groups, and facilitate internal security compliance reporting. You will proactively identify information security deficiencies and opportunities for improvement and facilitate the development of pragmatic solutions.

In addition to leading their Information Security function, you will also provide advisory and consulting support to help the firm improve its security posture and adhere to security policies, expected controls, and regulatory requirements. You will be responsible for managing the training, induction, and awareness program for employees and communicating effectively with both technical and non-technical audiences.

Your Profile

The ideal candidate will have a solid background in designing and implementing information security management solutions, experience in delivering and maintaining ISO27001, UK HMG IS1, PCI DSS, and Cyber Essentials PLUS aligned solutions, a deep understanding of GDPR and EU Data Privacy matters, and recognised IS qualifications (e.g., CISSP, CISM, CISMP or equivalent). You should also have a proven track record as a senior Information Security professional delivering in global organisations.

This role requires an individual who can conduct the role with a large degree of independence and integrity, as well as someone who has excellent stakeholder management skills. The successful candidate will be guiding them through ISO renewal in the first six months and will have a significant amount of client-facing responsibilities. Therefore, excellent communication skills are essential.
