La Fosse have partnered with a household global retail & e-commerce brand in the search for a Business Information Security Officer (BISO). The organisation operates as a market leader across multiple retail markets, boasting revenues of over £10 billion.

The organisation is passing through a significant period of business & digital transformation as they fundamentally upgrade their entire business model. From internal investment into digital technologies adopting a highly agile, engineering led technology function to developing an omni-channel presence for their global customer base this is an exciting period for the business.

In this role you will play a key role in setting & driving the information security standards across the core of the business. As the business passes through this digital transformation they require a strong, business facing information security lead to set effective security standards & controls. You will work closely with senior stakeholders in the product & portfolio side to provide advice & guidance on risk management, developing control frameworks and adopting agile methodologies. This is an autonomous role with broad responsibility covering technical and non-technical teams, with the opportunity to leverage the group security function for resources needed.

Requirements include:

  • Demonstrable experience of leading information security risk, governance or compliance programmes with a strong technical understanding of controls, solutions & structures.
  • Deep understanding of information & cyber security (with an ability to hold technical conversations relating to controls, standards & processes).
  • Demonstrable experience in business facing information security roles with direct experience working across multiple domains, teams & functions to help drive improvements.
  • Strong influencer with proven track record of engaging with/influencing senior stakeholders (effective communicator a must).
  • Preference for experience in agile, cloud/digital first technology organisations.

There is significant opportunity to grow in this role as they look to expand their security function in the near future.
