        We are supporting our client, a global organisation specialising in Consultancy Services to the natural resources, infrastructure, and property markets worldwide, who due to continued growth of the business and client base are expanding their Information Security Team based in USA.

        • Proficiency in enterprise information security standards, including Cyber Essentials, ISO 27001, 27002, Data Protection Act, and GDPR.

        Key Responsibilities include but not limited to:

        • Assist with security incident management and response activities, emphasizing cyber threats.
