Cyber Security Programme Manager

Cyber Security Programme Manager required. A Cyber Security Programme Manager is required by Montash's client, a manufacturing company, on an initial six month contract (strong possibility for extension). This role will be based from the UK and will be remote (you must be based from the UK to carry out this work).

My client is working with over 100 partner companies across 20+ countries in Europe with an estimated revenue range of €500K - €1Bn. The Cyber Security Programme Manager is a complex and varied role and is split into two parts.

  1. The cyber security country assessment
  2. Defining the cyber improvement programme & council

Across the companies my client works with cyber security maturity is varied. Also, the degree to which these companies are integrated with or use my client's platforms (e.g. Microsoft) is equally varied. Part of the Cyber Security Programme Manager's role will be to rank the companies so the assessment focuses on the most important ones first. The following factors must be considered when carrying this out: Incident likelihood, Business impact, Cyber immaturity, Integrations.

Additionally, the Cyber Security Programme Manager will be required to design the KPIs and the approach to prioritising the company assessment. These KPIs could include anything from 'Does the company produce Vulnerability Tests or Pen Tests', 'Do all computers use hard disk encryption' or 'Does the company have a network proxy', plus many more.

The Cyber Security Programme Manager's primary concern is to deliver the programme and make the countries compliant. This role will suit someone from a consulting background who has experience of working with multiple European territories, someone who has often experienced challenging environments and managing difficult stakeholders.

You will also play a part in helping to set the cybersecurity mandate for Group IT, defining the programme objectives, scope & organisation, and formally launch this with country COO's and IT Leads (with sponsorship from the Group COO) and regularly communicating with country CEO's and Group function heads.

The Cyber Security Programme Manager will play an integral role in setting up the following programme workstreams:

  1. Country assessment workstream

  1. Remediation workstream
    • Create master list of proposed and ongoing cyber improvement actions
    • Used to track remediation actions identified during country assessment

  1. Enterprise workstream
    • Cyber insurance
    • Cyber incident response plan
    • Policies, procedures & standards
    • SIEM
    • Business continuity and DR strategy

If you are a good fit for this please apply immediately.
