The AXA Insurance Security team is a business-focused team. It manages and reports on a wide range of business and technical controls, as well as providing security expertise to the IT project, Business Project and Risk Management functions. The security portfolio supports the digital transformation efforts for AXA Insurance UK, and the traditional technical IT project portfolios.
As the Senior IT Security Officer, you will work on the security aspects of project delivery, including but not limited to design, delivery, and building processes to ensure the controls remain in place into BAU.
Project technologies are broadly based, and expertise in Microsoft Development and Deployment are useful, but a range of other technologies from Mainframe to Unix to Desktop are also important. Nobody can know them all, so a willingness to learn is essential. Similarly, a sound judgement of the risks in projects or business processes is as or more important than detailed technical knowledge of a particular product.
We value self-development and progression, and you will be supported to achieve your full potential within this role. If you have skills in IT security risk management, we would like to hear from you!
What you will be doing
Support and assess Information Security Criticality Assessments (ISCA) and advise on appropriate control methods
Manage risk registers and contribute to risk reporting
Support business process analysis and risk profiling
Prepare, and when appropriate, deliver oral and written reports to the Head of UK Security as well as other key senior managers within the business
Highlight key or emerging issues that will impact audit closure, IFC deficiency status, or other controls environment concerns
Coordinate annual reviews and updates of relevant information security policies
Work with the UK Security team on process refinement to reduce the risk of information security.
Who are we looking for?
Relevant Professional Qualification e.g. CISSP, CISM, MIISP or equivalent experience in a similar role
Experience in Security risk management
Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, including the ability to negotiate
Ability to communicate across a range of stakeholders including senior management
A strong customer focus to ensure internal stakeholder needs are met
Ability to manage a variable workload with tight deadlines
Analytical skills and the ability to clearly identify key issues
Some knowledge and understanding of the issues and key information requirements affecting the IT environment in Agile scenarios.
