The importance of cybersecurity is increasing daily and the need to drive organizational change to adopt a comprehensive and cohesive cybersecurity strategy is a requirement for process automation vendors. The DeltaV Cybersecurity Governance Leader will be responsible to lead the implementation of a cohesive cybersecurity strategy within the DeltaV product organization. The defined strategy addresses existing and emerging standards for cybersecurity (e.g., IEC 62443), and will require on-going, active engagement with the product marketing, technology, product engineering, project management & execution, lifecycle services, and sales organizations to ensure the needs of these key stakeholders are addressed in the development and implementation of the strategy.

Implement the organization cybersecurity strategy to support the effective sale and delivery of Emerson’s Distributed Control Systems, Asset Management Systems, and associated solutions within the Process Systems & Solutions business unit. The strategy will address products, services, project execution, and overall organizational readiness requirements. Key stakeholders including the product marketing, technology, product engineering, project management and execution, lifecycle services, and sales organizations must have a voice in the implementation of the strategy.
Monitor, track progress, and provide regular updates to the executive management team on the progress that the business unit is making against the roadmap. Identify areas for concern as well as potential opportunities to leverage the cybersecurity strategy to grow and expand the business.
Ensure that adequate training programs are developed, implemented, and maintained within the business unit to address internal cybersecurity requirements such as those related to product development or customer project execution.
