Enterprise Information Services - Information Security Manager

Virtual Req #671
Wednesday, September 21, 2022

The Information Security Manager bridges the gap between our CISO and our information security engineers.  The information security manager will mentor and train the engineers so they can continue to grow professionally.

The information security manager will have technical-level skills that will address emerging information security trends such as protecting our network services that run in virtual containers instead of traditional servers.  They will also be actively involved in analyzing software flaws found in our code scanning services.  They will serve as the information security subject matter expert for our critical information security controls such as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), and vulnerability management.  


The information security manager will coordinate routine incident response actions.  This includes, but is not limited to responding to malware detections on our servers and computers, data theft by malicious insiders, and attempted attacks by malicious outsiders.


Lastly, this will enable the CISO to focus on meeting other information security objectives such as business continuity, risk management, and inventory management of Aquent’s digital assets.
