Our client is is in the process of initiating a number of Information Security initiatives across the business.

As part of this a core team has been put in place consisting of a Security Delivery Director, a number of Project Managers and a number of Security Architects. This team works alongside the existing Information Security Team and the ITO teams to scope, design and manage the deployment of the solutions.

It has become necessary to expand this team with a Security Architect role.

The Security Architect must be able to document vision, strategy and design and be able to present this at all levels.
