The Group Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) organisation is instrumental in protecting and ensuring the resilience of Standard Chartered Bank's data and IT systems by managing information and cyber security (ICS) risk across the enterprise. As a critical function reporting into the Group Chief Risk Officer (CRO), the Office of the CISO serves as the second line of defence for assuring ICS controls are implemented effectively and in accordance with the ICS Risk Framework and for instilling a culture of cyber security within the Bank. The Group CISO is responsible for ICS governance, strategy, policy, awareness, training, risk assessments, red teaming, third party security risk, industry partnerships, and regulatory engagement. In addition, the team of Information Security Officers (ISO) reports to the CISO and performs a pivotal role as an extension of the CISO in supporting the ICS risk management strategy, governance, advisory and assurance roles that face off to the Client Services, Regions, and Functions. The Office of the CISO is central to ensuring the Bank's ability to meet its ICS commitments to internal and external stakeholders, including regulators, as well as maintaining an acceptable ICS risk profile that is regularly reported to the Board.
The ICS Government Strategy role is a senior management role, crucial to ensuring the Group manages its regulatory ICS risk in a proactive manner, ensuring positive and productive engagements with global regulators to ensure that the Group contributes to systemic global cyber resilience.
The successful applicant will have a keen eye for detail, the ability to juggle high-volume urgent and important priorities, outstanding communication skills and excellent stakeholder management, with confidence in their abilities to constructively challenge internal stakeholders, including senior colleagues.
Direct experience of global cyber regulation from a 2nd line business perspective or through employment at a regulatory body is desirable.
The role offers the successful candidate the opportunity to work directly with the Group Chief Information Security Officer and other senior stakeholders across the Group, progressing their career through expanding ICS global teams at Standard Chartered.
