Cyber Security Consultant - Business Functions


Cyber security is an integral part of our culture, and as an industry leader within financial services, it is vital that we all play our part in keeping customers’ data secure. We see security as an enabler and differentiator to enable business innovation and growth, rather than a step in a compliance process.

This role sits in our UK ISO (Information Security Office), and will work to embed a positive security culture and to ensure that security risks are properly understood and managed. Working both internally across UK Cyber, and with the wider business, this position will play a key role in solving business problems within cyber guard rails and building pragmatic security controls into our day to day operational processes.

You will also work with technical subject matter experts within our Product Security Assurance team to ensure that we communicate technical information in accessible terms for business audiences, including senior management. This is a key part of our drive to communicate a consistent data-driven, risk-based set of priorities and updates. 

What you will do:

  • Engage with business functions, projects and activities to ensure that key business processes deliver security balanced with  ease of use - making the secure way the easy way to operate.

  • Provide a forward-looking view to Cyber of business activities which affect current understanding of cyber risk, and update business functions on relevant Cyber projects.

  • Provide cyber consultancy to business stakeholders and UK Cyber teams.

  • Support work to increase awareness of cyber risk across key business stakeholders.

  • Review existing processes to identify cyber risks, and propose any required mitigating work.

  • Assess compliance with Cyber policies and standards.

  • Work with Product Security Assurance colleagues to ensure that we present consistent, compelling narratives on risks associated with cyber vulnerabilities.

What we are looking for:

  • Relevant security certifications such as CISSP, CISM, CISA, CRISC, ISEB Certificate in Information Security Management Principles.

  • Practical experience of working in or leading components of a structured security programme, working with business teams to identify and manage cyber risk.

  • Experience in a financial or highly regulated environment.

  • Effective written and verbal communication skills.

  • A detailed understanding of ISO 27001, ITIL, COBIT, PCI DSS and NIST Cyber Security Frameworks.

  • Working knowledge of GDPR.

  • Demonstrable experience in cyber risk analysis, assessment and mitigation.

What’s in it for you:

  • Bring us all this - and you’ll be handsomely rewarded with a role contributing to the product roadmap for an organisation committed to transformation

  • We are continuing our journey into the public cloud and have problems of scale, security, availability and performance for you to help solve

  • We love continuous learning and that’s why we give you 10% of your time to work on cutting edge innovative projects that shape the way we will work in the future

  • We offer high performers strong and diverse career progression, investing heavily in developing great people through our Capital One University training programmes (and appropriate external providers)

  • Immediate access to our core benefits including pension scheme, bonus, generous holiday entitlement and private medical insurance – with flexible benefits available including season-ticket loans, cycle to work scheme and enhanced parental leave

  • Open-plan workspaces and facilities designed to inspire and support you. Our Nottingham head-office has a fully-serviced gym, subsidised restaurant, mindfulness and music room

Where and how you’ll work:

  • This is a permanent position and can be based in London office.  We’ve adopted a flexible hybrid working model - one that creates the opportunity to work in your own way, but also provides great spaces for in-person collaboration. 

  • Our core in-the-office days are Tuesday to Thursday, but they aren't mandatory - you’ll be led by your team, the type of work you do and of course your preferences. Many of our team have flexible working patterns so we’re open to discuss flexible working arrangements with you. 

  • You can read more about the full announcement from our Founder and CEO Rich Fairbank here: Update on CapitalOne.com

  • We are committed to creating a level playing field and seek to create teams that are representative of our customers and the communities we serve.  We’d love to hear from you if you identify with a typically under-represented group in our industry and are particularly keen to hear from women and ethnic minority candidates.

What you should know about how we recruit:

We pride ourselves on hiring the best people, not the same people. Building diverse and inclusive teams is the right thing to do and the smart thing to do. We want to work with top talent: whoever you are, whatever you look like, wherever you come from. We know it’s about what you do, not just what you say.
