Job Description

We are looking for an IT Security and Compliance Manager to join a well know London based fashion brand and take responsibility for developing and maintaining security frameworks across the company.

Working within the IT department, you will play a key role in ensuring that IT services are secure and compliant, and that systems are protected from internal and external threats. This is a great opportunity for an IT Security expert to join a successful, forward thinking company, and to deliver robust security frameworks that will support the growth of the business.

The core focus of this role is to ensure that the IT systems are protected at all times, as well as to ensure compliance with key security legislation, such as GDRP, ISO 27001 and PCI DSS. This will require you to build a solid understanding of what is already in place, before developing, implementing and governing all future security policies and processes. You will be the go to person for anything to do with IT security, and will need to work closely with multiple departments, which will mean building strong working relationships with key stakeholders.

You will take the lead on all security and compliance reviews, while also playing a key role in technical projects. You will need to stay abreast of developments in the field of IT security, particularly with respect to retail environments. You will also work closely with third party suppliers, and will be involved in disaster recovery and continuity planning.

To be considered for this role you must have a proven track record of commercial experience in an IT Security / Compliance Manager role or similar, ideally in a multi-site retail environment, although we are happy to consider applications from any comparable industry. We will also be looking for the following;

  • A comprehensive understanding of Information Security Frameworks (PCI DSS, GDRP, Cyber Essentials etc), and UK and EU data protection laws.
  • Experience with information risk management methods, data loss prevention tools and infrastructure security and hardening.
  • A solid technical background, including network technologies, internet protocols and an understanding of L2/L3 switching, routing, firewalls and IPS/IDS.
  • Experience of wireless and mobile security standards and technologies.
  • The ability to understand security vs usability.

In addition we are looking for people with strong communication skills, who are able to build effective working relationships with internal and external stakeholders, and who can contribute to and influence key decisions. You will need to be confident in your ability, and able to operate in a complex, ever evolving environment.

If this sounds like you then we would love to hear from you. Please contact Will Fraser at Handle Recruitment for more information.
