The Global Head of Application Security is accountable for the definition of a centralised application security strategy within one of the world's largest and most complex companies.
This is a brand new role tasked with the build out of the function to ultimately deliver against the centralised strategy proposed.
The ideal candidate will have a wealth of experience in application development and a solid understanding of the software development lifecycle combined with in depth knowledge of security vulnerabilities within the application environment.
This is a strategic role rather than hands on, with the aim of planning the secure migration of over 1000 existing applications into a central service environment, whilst also working with development teams on a global scale to embed security culture within the development lifecycle of new applications.
As a leader in this space the successful candidate must have a proven background building and managing global teams within application security, be experienced in large scale transformational programs and have a track record delivering within a complex and dynamic environment.
