Job description

Do you have security risk and control experience, and are you seeking a new remote job in Belgium, France Netherlands or UK? If so, we want to hear from you! Stott and May are helping a global critical financial market infrastructure company find a dedicated and collaborative Security Risk & Control Advisor to join their inclusive and welcoming team. This full-time security risk role comes with an attractive salary and excellent benefits package.


As a Security Risk & Control Advisor, you will focus on the security control framework, covering all key security domains, including identity and access management, vulnerability management, security monitoring, incident management, and platform, network and application security, amongst others.


To give you an idea of how this security risk and control role would look and feel, here are some things you could expect to do:

  • Take an active role in the controls definition and implementation and in managing the control framework as it is gradually moved to live operation for continuous monitoring/evidencing and continuous improvement
  • Contribute to designing, creating and rolling out effective controls, addressing critical risks and regulatory requirements across all security domains and advising and challenging control owners
  • Promote and implement controls to improve the risk culture and control maturity in IT
  • Work closely with security process owners and management across IT divisions and locations, as well as second and third lines of defence



To apply for this Security Risk & Control Advisor role, you will need a Master’s degree or equivalent experience (education in computer science, engineering or cybersecurity is a plus). You will also require 5+ years of field experience in the security risk and control environment (rather in controls implementation than in auditing or assurance testing), preferably in large/enterprise multi-platform-based IT environments. In addition, you should be process-minded and have good knowledge of the key principles of the standard frameworks such as ISO 27001/2 and CIS (ISO 27001 lead implementer certification is a plus). A combination of CISSP and CISA or CISM certifications and a good understanding and experience with ServiceNow GRC would also be advantageous.


In return for your dedication, collaboration and commitment, you will receive a generous salary and a fantastic benefits package, joining a welcoming and inclusive culture.


To learn more and apply for this inclusive and collaborative full-time, remote Security Risk & Control Advisor, please get in touch with Stott and May today. We'd love to hear from you!
