  • Support third-party assessments including due diligence, compliance questionnaires, vendor assurance, and RFPs.
  • Help us continue to develop and improve our security incident response and management processes.
  • Evaluate our existing control effectiveness and provide recommendations. Monitor and report on compliance gaps.

What skills, experience, and qualifications we require: 

  • A strong technical understanding of Cloud technologies, architectures, and associated risks.

  • Ability to identify, analyse and propose mitigating actions for GRC risks in cloud-native environments

  • Detail-oriented and delivery-focused and able to manage multiple work streams simultaneously.
  • Experience using SQL to query data sets and power reports
