About the role

Serco is committed to protecting all our services from threats, whether internal or external, deliberate or accidental, that might have an adverse impact on individuals, our activities and our reputation.

However, providing the right balance of security controls to protect an information system is a complex task: overly stringent controls will hamper the ability to conduct business, but conversely, if the controls are too weak, information (and organisational reputation) is put at risk, with potentially serious financial and legal consequences.

The key purpose of this role is to guide the design, implementation and ongoing management of appropriate combinations of technical, physical, procedural and personnel controls to protect our customers’ data and to comply with our legal, regulatory and contractual obligations.

This involves working with and influencing at all levels within bid and contract teams, producing a variety of verbal and written outputs.

About you

* A broad knowledge in the field of Information Assurance, ranging from developing and reviewing security architectures through to risk assessment and accreditation, with at least 5 years’ experience of working in the field of IA with limited supervision.
* Up-to-date knowledge of current CESG/HMG standards and guidelines.
* ISO 27001Lead Implementer and/or Auditor.
* PCI-DSS and experience of contact centre environments are desirable.
* Certification against the CESG Certified Professional (CCP) Security Information Risk Advisor (SIRA) and / or IA Architect roles at Senior Practitioner level.
* CISSP is highly desirable (but not essential).
* Educated to degree level in a relevant discipline, or equivalent vocational qualifications.
* Must be SC cleared or willing to undergo SC clearance.
