The Director of Enterprise Information Security is a critical member of the chief information security officer’s (CISO’s) team.
The role is to act as an interface between the CISO’s strategic and process-based activities and the work of the IT organization.
The Director must be able to translate the IT-risk requirements and constraints of the business into technical control requirements
and specifications, as well as develop metrics for ongoing performance measurement and reporting. The Director coordinates the IT
organization’s technical activities to implement and manage security infrastructure, and to provide regular status and service-level
reports to management.

The Director is a leadership role that requires an individual with a strong technical background, as well as an ability to work
with the IT organization and business management to align priorities and plans with key business objectives. The Director will
act as an empowered representative of the CISO during IT planning initiatives to ensure that security measures are incorporated
into strategic IT plans and that service expectations are clearly defined. The Director will also be responsible for working with
business and IT stakeholders to balance real-world risks with business drivers such as speed, agility, flexibility, and
performance. Expertise in leading project teams and developing and managing projects is essential for success in this role.
In addition to supporting the CISO’s policies and strategies, the Director must be able to prioritize work efforts — balancing
operational tasks with longer-term strategic security efforts. Other project management tasks will include resource balancing across
multiple IT and security teams, task prioritizing and project reporting. Vendor relationship management — ensuring that service levels
and vendor obligations are met — is also an important aspect of the position.
