Job Description

Job Description

We are looking for a self-motivated, experienced and driven Security Risk Manager to deliver our Security Risk Management Strategy. Coordinating with senior stakeholders to align security risk activities and strategies within business priorities, you will be ensuring continued compliance with regulatory and contractual requirements.

Security never stands still. There is always change and a new technology or skill on the horizon. That is why, at Cambridge, we know that empowered people are key to our success, so we give everyone here the support, resources, and opportunity to learn and develop new skills. We will support you to learn that new skill, or pilot that new technology, and really help you grow into a successful member of the wider team.

The Role

You will lead on projects to reduce Cambridge's risk exposure and deliver risk reports and metrics to the Security and Data Committee and other governance boards.

With a positive, can-do attitude, you will be able to demonstrate expertise and significant experience in Security Risk and the communication of that with multiple stakeholders across the business.

Whether you are managing the implementation of our security risk management strategy, or defining and implementing new security risk management practices, this role will provide you with continuous opportunities to innovate and make your impact.

Candidate Description

You have a deep knowledge and practical experience of Security Risk Management, risk frameworks, and even hold a security certification. Your extensive certified experience in a security risk management role will help you succeed in this position, along with an active CRISC or 27005 Risk Manager Certification (or above).

With a working knowledge of security threats and proportionate mitigations, as well as supply chain security management systems, this role will give you the opportunity to grow and develop further in your security career path.
