About The Role:

The Security Program Manager will coordinate and advance the company's security initiatives, ensuring they align with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework for strengthening and maintaining the organization’s cybersecurity posture. This individual will manage the execution and tracking of security-related activities and tasks, integrating GRC principles to support the comprehensive security program. The role involves collaboration with various departments to embed security and risk management best practices across the company. 

Reporting to the Director of Information Security, the Security Program Manager will contribute to the strategic planning and continuous improvement of the security landscape as well as perform critical security team functions.

This is a remote-friendly opportunity that can sit in NYC (where our headquarter is located), one of our office hubs (Austin, Miami, Denver, Mountain View, or Seattle), or anywhere else in the US. However, depending upon where the remote work is performed, income could be subject to New York State tax withholding. 

As Our Security Program Manager, You Will:

  • Oversee the planning and execution of security initiatives, ensuring alignment with the NIST CSF and organizational security goals.
  • Map security activities and tasks to the NIST CSF domains: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover, ensuring comprehensive coverage and continuous improvement.
  • Conduct regular reviews and updates of security processes (access reviews, compliance with standards and frameworks, evidence collection) to align with the evolving guidelines of the NIST CSF, SOC 2, and other relevant GRC requirements.
  • Work across the company to embed GRC considerations into project management and operational processes, enhancing the company’s resilience to cyber threats.
  • Drive risk assessment initiatives across teams, correlating them with NIST CSF and the company’s risk management strategy.
  • Facilitate and manage compliance with regulatory requirements, ensuring projects adhere to relevant laws, standards, and best practices.
  • Document and maintain records of security-related decisions, actions, and outcomes to support auditing and compliance verification efforts.
  • Collaborate with auditors and across the company in order to ensure efforts are aligned with SOC preparedness. This will include preparing evidence, working with teams to remediate any issues, and serving as a go between for these efforts.
  • Organize and deliver security awareness training programs to foster a culture of security mindfulness.
  • Liaise with vendors and third parties to ensure security requirements are met and risks are managed.
  • Continuously monitor the security landscape to address new and emerging threats.
  • Communicate the status, risks, and achievements of the security program to stakeholders, using NIST CSF as a benchmark for program maturity.
  • Maintain a repository of security program artifacts, including policies, procedures, and records, to demonstrate adherence to SOC 2 preparedness and other GRC objectives.

You Are Likely To Succeed If:

  • Have 1-3 years of experience in a security program analyst or GRC-related role.
  • Demonstrated experience in mapping and tracking security program activities to frameworks like NIST CSF and SOC 2.
  • Knowledge of GRC principles and their application within a security program.
  • Strong project management skills, with a track record of achieving project milestones and deadlines.
  • Proficient in coordinating risk management activities and compliance tasks.
  • Effective communicator with an ability to articulate complex security concepts to diverse audiences.
  • Maintain relevant certifications such as PMP, CISSP, CISM, or specific to NIST (e.g., NIST Cybersecurity Professional) are highly valued, but not required for this position
  • Experience with operation and managing security programs that are compliant with SOC2, ISO27001, NIST CSF,  NIST 800-53, etc is highly desired
  • Have a Bachelor's degree in Business, Information Management Systems, Information Technology, Cybersecurity, Computer Science, or a related field

Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
