About the job

We’re looking for an experienced Security Risk Lead, to be a key part of the team responsible for oversight across the Admiral Group.

This is an exciting opportunity to help build and develop the mechanisms that will ensure that the Group continues to effectively manage exposure to the continuously developing threat landscape.

A big part of the role will be building effective relationships with the business level risk and security teams, championing the secure use of technology and data within the businesses.

  • Leading on the continued development and articulation of risk appetite statements as meaningful descriptions of the amount of Security risk the business is willing to take.
  • Promoting Security risk governance and management as part of the wider Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) processes, improving awareness and understanding across the Group to minimise the potential impacts upon the business.
  • Developing and coaching team members to enable them to develop their knowledge and skills.
  • Leading on the development, modification and review of all Group Level Information Security policies and standards ensuring alignment with the risk appetite statements.
  • Maintaining awareness of legal and regulatory requirements on managing Information Security risk, keeping up to date on current industry practices and implement change where needed within the development plan.
  • Scanning and reviewing potential external emerging Security risks and provide an analysis of potential impacts to the business.
  • Producing reports and recommendations on Security risk topics as required for Group Committees/Board.
  • Providing advice to guide and support new propositions, products or areas of business expansion.
  • Developing and maintaining key stakeholder relationships across the Group.

Key Skills, Qualifications and Experience

Essential:

  • Subject Matter expertise – Deep knowledge of Cyber Security governance and risk management allowing you to be recognised as an expert within the business. You will have a minimum of 5 years’ experience in a Cyber risk/governance or Information Security role.
  • Initiative and pro-activity – Effective and informed decisions using own initiative and based upon a sound understanding of the business issues and challenges of the business.
  • Communication – Clear and appropriate communication for employees at all levels with the ability to discuss technical subjects with both technical and non-technical audiences. Ability to articulate and pitch risk advice, often at a technical level, directly to key customer stakeholders.
  • Planning and Organising – Develop clear, efficient, and logical approaches to tackle issues and problems in a logical, step-by-step way. Ability to effectively collaborate and work independently in a fast-growing organisation.
  • Customer focus – An understanding of customer priorities and a desire to support their expectations.
