As part of the Security Business Group, Cloud Infrastructure Engineering organization, you will be responsible for driving the Security Engineering strategy and day to day activities across the infrastructure organization. It is very important to note that this is not your typical information security role. We build infrastructure as a service, platform as a service and operate as a business within Cisco, with internal and external customers. The scope covers a broad discipline that binds our overall security posture across the cloud infrastructure stack. By working in lock-step with engineering, our customers benefit by focusing on enabling them to securely innovate and protecting the business from existing and emerging threats.


We are looking for a talented individual to drive the following:


                • Partner with leadership to develop the overall security strategy, policy and procedures

                • Partner and integrate with broader Cisco security organizations to create a force multiplier

                • Develop and drive the security management lifecycle, advise on business impact and provide practical risk based security services and solutions

                • Identify a roadmap for security auditing and testing that meets the engineering/product/market need

                • Work cross-functionally across engineering to drive educational awareness and training

                • Develop, improve and monitor our security best practices; from ISO 27001 to SDLC

                • Participate and represent security interests with PM, Compliance and Legal teams


Desired Skills


                • Previous management experience in customer led product engineering organizations

                • Demonstrable experience of working at the executive leadership level

                • Experience of driving security related change within a business

                • Security related qualifications (CISSP, CEH, OCSP, Security+, CCSP)

                • Experience of enhancing a cloud specific Secure Development Lifecycle

                • Experience of security testing (penetration testing, vulnerability assessment)

                • Demonstrated working knowledge and proficiency in networking, unix based operating systems, databases, protocols and the security technologies of each

                • Strong and extensive experience working in an agile/lean engineering environment


We connect everything - people, process, data and things. We innovate everywhere to create fresh ideas and possibilities. We make a meaningful difference that will benefit everyone - our people, our customers and the world around us.

Our technology changes the way the world works, lives, plays and learns. But our edge doesn't come from technology. It comes from our people. We're looking for the kind of people who take smart risks, thrive in diverse environments, inspire their colleagues, and are committed to having an impact on the world. Whether you create technology solutions that redefine business or build connections that strengthen the community, you can make it happen at Cisco!
