We're looking for a Principal Technical Advisor for our Melbourne team who can provide a broad range of advisory services, covering security strategy, governance, risk, audit and compliance topics, as well as possessing enough of a technical background to be able to confidently work within high-complexity environments. We're happy to look at candidates with varying strengths provided there is a versatility across all. If you like risk analysis vendor security assessment methodologies in the same way most people like donuts or kittens (or both), then we want to hear from you!

Role and Responsibilities:
Your day to day tasks will vary considerably – from leading and delivering client projects, working with clients / prospective clients and identifying their security needs and whether we can assist, mentoring and coaching more junior staff and more. Typical delivery tasks might include:

  • Undertaking security threat and risk assessments
  • Developing security strategies and road-maps
  • Developing and reviewing solution/capability design artefacts
  • Developing and refining policies, standards, principles and strategies, and assessing their effectiveness
  • Assisting in the evaluation of emerging technologies, service providers, tools, platforms and applications that are best suited to the specific needs of a given organisation
  • Delivering security architecture advice (particularly surrounding cloud services)

Your skills/Experience:

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • An analytical mindset (particularly when it comes to technology and business risk) 
  • An ability to deliver consulting projects , while also developing strong relationships with our customers
  • Candidates with experience with these standards will have an added advantage:  PCI DSS, PSPF & ISM, PCI, NIST-CSF, ISO 27000

But most of all, you must be passionate about sharing your information security knowledge with everyone around you, in particular your clients, your colleagues and the broader infosec industry – you want to make a change for the better.

NOTE:  Applications will only be considered from those who have the right to work in Australia.


Education:

We prefer college-educated applicants, but at minimum, high school diploma or equivalent is required for employment.
