Job Description

Head of Information Security Consultancy
Manchester Based
Up to £105,000 + Benefits and Bonus
The risk of an Information Security breach continues to increase, with all industries regularly being targeted. As such we and our supporting Information Systems and Networks face continuous and increasing security threats from a wide range of sources, including computer-assisted fraud, espionage, vandalism and accidental or deliberate data loss. Causes of damage such as malicious code, computer hacking, denial of service attacks, and other methods have become more common and ambitious whilst increasing in sophistication.

Many industry studies have concluded that it is no longer if but when an organisation will have a security incident or significant data breach. It is therefore essential to increase the Information Security maturity to reduce this likelihood by ensuring the full Information Security cycle of Plan, Prevent, Detect, and Respond is enhanced in line with the increase in threats as system complexities. If an organisation takes an approach of only preventing issues then it will not be resilient when a security incident does occur and would have the potential to suffer significant financial and reputational loss.

A robust Information Security function is an essential foundation to support our Rebuild activity, embed organisational capability to better equip and protect from current and future threats, and deliver improvements as part of the "Fixing the Plumbing" initiative. We have set a low risk appetite for Information Security which it currently operates outside of. The primary objective of the Information Security Improvement Programme is to reduce the level of Information Security risk to meet that appetite.

The new Information Security Organisational Structure has been designed to enhance the existing in-house IT Security capability to provide a standardised approach to Information Security across the Organisation and its Business Units to increase capability and improve the overall Information Security posture

The new Security Organisational Structure has been designed with the following objectives:
