IT Security specialist required to join a fast-paced organisation in Falkirk. This is a brand-new role in which you will play a lead role within the IT Security team for an organisation which is enjoying a sustained period of growth.

The organisation has been enjoying massive success and have stamped their authority as leaders in their field with a number of high-profile business wins from a range of household names. The tech environment is modern, seen as a business enabler and they have adopted a cloud first approach. This role is challenging and as a result I require a Security Consultant with strong knowledge of security practices, guidelines and controls. You will have overall responsibility to direct, create and evolve Security architectures and roadmaps in order to meet the company's current and future IT needs.

I am looking for someone with a passion for Information Security - you will have complete autonomy of the IT Security estate and will champion the adoption of best practices in order to reduce business critical threats. You will implement and sustain IT security governance, policies and standards across the enterprise.

Key Responsibilities:

** Encourage the adoption of standard practices and procedures

** Continuously assess IT security risk and threats

** Responsible for security auditing, internally and externally, reporting on threat assessment

** Identify current and future internal and external security vulnerabilities, and identify the best ways to reduce information security risks.

** IT Security qualifications: CISSP etc

** Experience operating in a complex organisational environment dealing with senior members of staff and influencing key stakeholders

** Excellent working experience of developing, publishing, maintaining control processes and policies around IT Security

We are offering the opportunity to champion the security culture across a global organisation with a great reputation.

I am keen to speak to professionals who have experience in a similar role, with a broad understanding of IT Security. You must ensure security requirements are being met, whilst continually driving process improvement to ensure best practice.

If this sounds interesting, please apply straight away, or call Murray Simpson for an informal chat.
