  • Be able to apply technical knowledge, with creative and innovative thinking in a broad range of complex and non-routine contexts.

  • Identify and establish good security governance to meet client business requirements.

  • Perform Cyber Security risk assessments and determine the most cost-effective deployment of security controls and solutions in line with the business risk appetite to protect OT systems and maximise uptime and resilience.

  • Create client policies and procedures to meet corporate and regulatory requirements and standards, taking into account normal working practices in OT environments.

  • Select appropriate technology to meet clients’ security requirements and help them deploy that technology in a live CNI environment.

  • Familiarity with one or more OT cyber security standards or regulatory frameworks such as IEC 62443, NIST CSF, the Network and Information Systems (NIS) Regulations or HSE OG-0086. GICSP, IEC/ISA 62443 or other cyber security qualification with strong relevance to OT cyber would be an advantage.
