Embedded in our Software Engineering team, s/he will provide in depth and practical secure development expertise to engineering, InfoSec, Data, IT and other teams. They will lead in the creation of secure software design, build and delivery standards, policies and procedures and they will provide security advice to colleagues.

They will be monitoring, in conjunction with our Security Analysts, the security health of our Application estate, as well as our external attack surface (Cloud and OnPrem), as well as producing reports and continuously recommending improvements in our software security practices and controls, external and internal.

The role will involve:

Core Responsibilities

  • Design secure software development and delivery systems with objectives like speed, scalability, robustness, zero-trust, automation and supportability at the core.
  • Ensure that the application estate is built, deployed/delivered and operated securely, according to industry standards, as well as our own.
  • Provide expert software security advice (design, coding, testing, etc) to the Software Engineering community, to InfoSec, DevOPS and other colleagues.
  • Do research and regularly consult with colleagues
  • Deliver secure software development training (e.g. OWASP Top10)
  • Co-work with Security Analysts and other colleagues on software vulnerabilities and security issues: determine scope, severity and potential impact, recommend next steps, follow through with risk treatment and mitigation.
  • Escalate issues, appropriately, to various teams and levels of authority inside the organisation.
  • Act as the first Point of Contact (POC) for all application / software security issues, vulnerabilities, events, anomalies, incidents and investigations.

Additional Responsibilities

  • Use primary and secondary data to produce analysis and reports, regular and ad-hoc.
  • Present to senior and executive management on the status of our application estate and on the progress of our security plan.

  • Good experience working with (understanding, preventing and remedying) security issues in software architecture, software development, e.g. static and/or dynamic code analysis and tools, software dependency checking, OWASP Top10 testing, application threat modelling, SEI CERT C / J, etc.
  • Good experience working in an Agile software development environment, with classic applications as well as microservices, using modern code processing and continuous integration and delivery tools (e.g. GitHub, Jenkins, Bamboo, etc)
  • Good expertise in taking security policy statements and translating them into actual, implementable, security controls and techniques that can make our software applications demonstrably more secure and robust.
