Cyber Security Cloud Architect

  • Toronto, Canada
  • Architecture / Town planning

Job description

With rapidly changing cybersecurity threats, clients from all industries look to us for trusted solutions for their increasingly complex risks. You will have access to our robust solutions to advise clients on managing cybersecurity risk, enhancing maturity, and improving efficiency. You will belong to an international connected team of specialists helping our clients with their most complex cybersecurity needs and contributing toward their business resilience.

The opportunity

We are actively seeking a Cyber Security Cloud Architect to join our Cybersecurity team.
Our Advisory Services (AS) practice, a specialty advisory practice within EY, provides risk, performance improvement and IT risk services through a suite of industry-focused operational solutions helping companies around the world evaluate and enhance their risk management and business process functions.

Information Technology Security is a top issue many of our clients are facing and EY can help. Our Security professionals comprise former CSOs, CIOs and specialized subject matter professionals. Drawing on our in-depth knowledge and extensive experience working with major organizations, we work with clients to deliver sustainable, measurable results:
• Transforming information security programs. Security program management helps companies understand the multiple security challenges that confront them every day. Our experienced professionals can help to effectively balance people, processes and technology — enabling better security and risk decisions, and a reduction in the cost of managing overall security risk.
• Identifying and responding to cyber threats. With reputation and brand on the line, companies can’t afford to be compromised. A company's data needs to be safeguarded before something happens — not just repair the damage after it’s been done. Our threat and vulnerability team can help build the right model to protect companies, inside and out.
• Managing identity and access effectively and efficiently. Identity and access management (IAM) processes are critical to meeting compliance needs and improving operational efficiency. Companies continue to invest in point solutions without having a complete vision. We can help improve IAM capabilities to deliver improved compliance and better management of systems.
• Preventing information loss and addressing privacy regulations. Increased and revised legislation is making companies rethink how they manage, move and use personal information and intellectual property. Our privacy and data protection professionals can help develop new strategies for securing information that balance regulatory requirements with business needs.
