GRC Consultant (QSA)

Salary - £80,000 - £100,000 +Excellent benefits

Location - UK Wide (Home based with travel to client sites)

The role

We are looking for a consultant to join our GRC team in the UK. This role is home-based, with travel to client sites.

You'll be part of a team delivering security consultancy in a client-facing role, with a particular focus on:

  • PCI DSS consultancy and assessments
  • Security reviews against standards or guidelines such as the NCSC 10 Steps to Cyber Security and NIST CSF
  • ISO 27001 gap analyses
  • Helping our clients to implement Information Security Management Systems and achieve and maintain ISO27001 certification
  • Conducting risk assessments
  • Creating or supporting third-party risk management and audit programmes



Essential skills and experience:

  • Be a current QSA who has completed multiple on-site PCI DSS assessments, and be able to demonstrate a mature understanding of complex PCI DSS environments, and an ability to consult as well as assess
  • Have experience with ISO 27001, including implementing an ISMS and achieving certification
  • Have experience working with the NIST CSF
  • A good understanding of core concepts and technologies. For example, networking, Windows and Linux operating systems, and security technologies such as antimalware, IDS/IPS, etc. You do not need hands-on experience with these technologies or to have worked in an operational role
  • Be experienced working as a consultant in a client-facing role, leading delivery. You'll be friendly and approachable and able to work well with our clients
  • Ability to work in a structured and methodical manner, with support to manage your own time with a focus on quality work


Your primary role will be to deliver PCI DSS consultancy and assessment activities to our clients as part of an established and experienced team of consultants. It's not all PCI DSS, though, and you'll be involved in other areas as listed above and have opportunities to scope and deliver more bespoke engagements.

Location

  • This role is home-based, with an expectation of travel to client sites, primarily in the UK, but with some opportunities for European and international travel; therefore, all candidates must be willing to travel
  • PCI DSS assessment activities require on-site work, but most other work is delivered at least partly from home
  • We can support working from across the UK
  • All applicants will require residence in the UK



What you'll be doing in your role:

In your role, you will deliver consultancy services to our clients, covering the following areas:

  • Conduct security reviews against standards or guidelines such as the NCSC 10 Steps to Cyber Security, NIST CSF, Cyber Essentials
  • Perform ISO 27001 gap analyses
  • Help our clients to implement Information Security Management Systems and achieve and maintain ISO27001 certification
  • PCI DSS consultancy and gap analyses
  • Assistance in implementing PCI DSS requirements such as policy writing
  • Complete on-site assessments and reports on compliance
  • Complete risk assessments
  • Conduct third-party risk reviews
  • Support pre-sales where required by assisting in the pre-sales process, understanding client requirements and contributing to proposals and scoping of engagements

Certifications
As an active QSA you must hold a certification from list A and list B per the PCI SSC requirements.

  • ISO 27001 lead auditor or lead implementer
  • CISSP - (ISC)2 Certified Information System Security Professional
  • CISM - ISACA Certified Information Security Manager
  • CISA - ISACA Certified Information Systems Auditor
