Baringa Partners is a fast growing independent business and technology consultancy. We help businesses run more effectively, reach new markets and navigate industry shifts. We use our industry insights, pragmatism and original thought to help each client improve their business. We are based in London, but have offices in Germany, New York and UAE, supporting over 500 consultants working around the globe.
We are now looking for an individual to join Baringa as our first dedicated Information Security Manager (ISM), working with both the IT team, the Executive Operations team and the wider business to lead in the management and governance of information security across Baringa.
The ISM is accountable for: Baringa’s overall information security risk exposure, defining Baringa’s information security requirements, the strategy for dealing with the requirement, the definition of controls to manage information security risks, and assistance with the provision of these controls as appropriate. The ISM will also be expected to assure the effective operation of these controls as appropriate (for example, with regular audits).
The ISM will be responsible for demonstrating and communicating Baringa’s InfoSec controls to partners, suppliers, customers, regulators and auditors as needed, including in support of desired accreditation and as part of commercial bid processes. The ISM will also be responsible for the InfoSec policy set, including managing periodic review and executive sign-off, and will be expected to facilitate and participate in executive level discussion around information security risks, as well as other governance forums as appropriate.
As the domain of information security is constantly changing, the Information Security Manager must lead the continual improvement of Baringa’s security requirements and services. As well as taking a strategic view on the capabilities required for a mid-size (and growing) Professional Services organisation such as Baringa, this role also encompasses providing technical security governance, low level design consultation, and documentation of the security aspects of Baringa’s services as well as review of client contracts as needed.
As this is a new role in Baringa, the ISM will be expected to establish a number of the key processes and practices that will support InfoSec in Baringa over time, per the above.
