Resources in our Cyber security Unit include security experts (e.g. specialists in infrastructure, applications, endpoints and identity and access management), a research and development team (whose members specialize in malware analysis and forensics), ethical hackers, five multi-tenant security operation centers (SOC) in different parts of the world, and an Information Technology Security Evaluation Facility. We are also a global leader in testing.

You can expect to join a team of top-flight Security Architects, Senior Security Architects and Managing Security Architects who think like an attacker and address our clients’ cyber security challenges with market leading solutions. As one of our Security Architects, you’ll work with wide range of different clients and can expect to apply your technical expertise, insight and imagination to lots of different assignments.

The focus of your role

  • Driving beneficial security change into our clients’ businesses through the development or review of architecture;
  • Managing known or emerging security and information risks by initiating or influencing the development of new security architectures and compliance with architectural principles and objectives;
  • Acting as a focal point for mitigating and resolving security and information risks affecting our clients’ existing solutions and any alternative or new solutions, we deliver for them;
  • Designing, developing and helping to implement technical, physical, personnel, process and procedural security controls for our client’s existing and new solutions;
  • Checking our clients’ solutions comply with applicable laws, regulations, standards, policies and guidance on security and information risk management;

  • Security architecture consultancy (e.g. shaping the security of an enterprise, systems or services in one or more industry sectors)

This includes experience in determining security requirements and producing security architecture design documents;
