Our continued growth has created an opportunity to join ourteam as a GRC Security Analyst

The governance, risk and compliance (GRC) security analyst is a highly respected, influential and in-demand role within the business. The position is responsible supporting the security direction of the business and elevating the company's security posture. The GRC security analyst is expected to support the security strategy of the business within new and existing information system capabilities. Consequently, the position requires both an understanding of legacy systems, as well as new technologies and requirements.

In tandem with security leadership, the GRC security analyst consistently assesses and validates the assurance of the security program. As a primary point of contact for internal and external auditors, the GRC security analyst monitors progress and enforces resolution of outstanding issues that may lead to non-compliance or security threats to the business.

  • Liaison with auditors, both internal and external, to maintain and implement controls for compliance and privacy laws.
  • Act as a point of contact for disaster recovery and business continuity as it relates to security frameworks, compliance and privacy laws.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.

      • At least 2+ years' experience in cybersecurity as a practitioner and with at least 2 to 3+ years exposure with various security frameworks.
      • Strong business acumen and security technology skills for well-rounded proficiency, as well as proven ability to align with security practices and compliance responsibilities.
      • Experience and understanding of various regulatory requirements and laws, including but not limited to PCI, SOX, HIPAA, GDPR and GLBA. Additional experience in one or more of the following: ISO 27001/2, ITIL or NIST.
      • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills, and proven ability to translate security and risk to all levels of the business.
