Recommending operational guidelines for new security solutions during the implementation process.

Leading the planning, execution, and management of small-to-medium sized Information Security projects.

Providing documentation, upon request, to allow for written and graphical views of the security posture of the organization, including how security risks are mitigated across the entire IT.

Providing proactive identification of security risks affecting the company and recommending appropriate security solutions to mitigate identified risks.

To be successful in this role, you will be:

A big-picture person who can conceptualize all of IT infrastructure, while paying attention to the details that differentiate secure from insecure systems.

An analytical person who enjoys analyzing and interpreting processes or data, seeing patterns, and communicating recommendations accordingly.

A self-starter who is excited by the opportunity to lead projects and influence others.

An individual who derives satisfaction from taking a concern or problem and seeing it through to resolution.

Someone who is excited to stay on top of new knowledge and innovations in the field and come up with ideas for possible implementation.

Someone who enjoys building rapport with others.

An organized individual for whom time management and the ability to establish priorities comes naturally.

Someone who enjoys being the decision maker in demanding situations.
