Global Account Manager Information Security

Deze vacature is niet meer vacant


Information security topics make the newspaper headlines on a daily basis. Cyber security stories like those about the Lazarus Group in North Korea, the Pegasus tools from the NSO group or the revelations about Cambridge Analytica often trump the fictional storylines of James Bond movies. In this job, you will operate at the heart of these developments that impact everything from politics to business and even our personal lives. You will help ABN AMRO formulate an answer to the ever increasing cyber threats as part of a team that coordinates the bank’s information security efforts worldwide. If you have a strong interest in information security, you love working in a dynamic environment, and you have a natural ability to understand different needs and connect people, then we are looking for you!

Your Work

As a Global Account Manager Information Security, you are responsible for advising and empowering all business units to achieve a strong security posture. As Global Security Management, we are the gateway to the Corporate Information Security Office (CISO) of the bank. We provide insight and give advice regarding all security products, services and teams within CISO. We are not the subject matter experts, but we connect the business to our colleagues who know everything about topics like authentication, data loss prevention or fraud. Also, we provide support when it comes to policies, standards and regulation and assure each entity within the group has a plan to resolve its issues, strengthen its foundation and improve its security posture. Subsequently, we empower the business to implement the relevant solutions and to constantly raise the bar. Knowledge sharing and cooperation are essential to be successful in this role. Security is not just a CISO topic, it’s everyone’s responsibility within the bank. An important part of your work is to advocate that philosophy and embed information security awareness and practices into all parts of the bank.

Some concrete examples of your work:

  • Stakeholder management, both in The Netherlands and worldwide (from time to time, we will ask you to travel);
  • First point of contact for the business and link between the Business, IT and CISO;
  • Keeping a close eye on the latest developments within CISO and staying in connection with the CISO teams;
  • Maintaining and developing a bank-wide security community for knowledge sharing;
  • Empowering the business in developing and implementing an Information Security Plan;
  • Explaining the impact of new regulations together with the Global Security Governance team;
  • Discussing risk and audit items with 2nd and 3rd line;
  • Explaining bank-wide security themes to the business and sometimes regulators.

Your working environment

You become part of a team of five Global Security Managers at Global Security Management. You will have your own portfolio of ABN AMRO entities that are each represented by a Business Information Officer (BISOs). You will be their first point of contact for all information security questions and you will help them connect with their fellow BISOs, to develop their knowledge and instruct them on implementing the latest security measures. You work in close collaboration with your fellow Account Managers and build a global security community together.

Global Security Management (GSM) is one of the teams of the Security Governance & Organisation (SG&O) department at CISO. This department consists of multiple teams with a total of 60 colleagues. GSM closely collaborates with the Global Security Governance team where our policy and governance experts work and the Organisational Support team that consists of consultants, risk experts, and support colleagues. We have plenty of activities to connect, there is always room for a laugh and we value new initiatives.

CISO appreciates its societal relevance. We have a mission to drive secure banking for our bank, our customers and for the society as a whole because we know that the work we do affects the safety and stability of our society and its institutions. CISO consists of approximately 500 colleagues who are mandated to ensure ABN AMRO’s information security worldwide.

Your profile

Your soft skills are strong. You are empathic, you make connections easily and you are approachable. Your internal clients entrust you with their challenges so that you can help resolve them. You naturally strive to collaborate and with your solid knowledge of CISO, you make the right connections. You are persuasive when it comes to communicating the importance of security. You are a role model in delivering results and you also expect the same from those that you work with. You are not afraid to take ownership of important topics and you know how to move these forward in a complex organisation. You are driven to constantly develop your knowledge and have an intrinsic motivation to make a contribution by applying and sharing what you know. You bring energy to your job and you are passionate about providing clear insights as well as delivering concrete action.

You enjoy a changing environment, you are curious, you take nothing for granted and have natural tendency to dig deeper. You know how to engage managers, colleagues and customers with your ideas. You have strong persuasive skills both in person and on paper.
