Job Description Summary
The Chief Security Office (CSO) plays a vital part of delivering the Group's vision of putting customers at the heart of everything we do, helping Britain prosper, and protecting the Group and customers from security threats. We're responsible for defining and communicating our security strategy and providing dedicated support and constructive challenge to business areas to deliver an effective and compliant security risk management framework.

Advanced Intrusion Tests (AIT) (e.g. "Red Team tests") are intelligence-led tests designed to simulate the approach a skilled adversary will use in real life cyber-attack scenarios against the Group. Scenarios are designed to independently evaluate the organisation's end-to-end cyber resilience by testing people, physical security, processes and technology.

As the Senior Advanced Intrusion Testing SME, your day-to-day role involves research, scoping and managing the execution of AIT's; and management of test output by identifying vulnerabilities that require remediation. AIT use an intelligence led approach to ensure the testing reflects the current and relevant attacks seen in the real world.
The majority tests are delivered using third party providers. However, the team is undergoing an exciting evolution with the aim of growing the amount of internal testing activity the team conducts. You'll conduct both types of testing with an emphasis on managing third party testing.

In addition, the Advanced Intrusion Testing team are increasingly conducting collaborative test exercises with the Security Operations Centre (SOC), known as Purple Team tests. You'll maximise opportunities for the SOC to improve LBG's security defence during the post-test phase.

Key responsibilities & accountabilities include:

•\tSupport the ongoing security and resiliency of LBG's computing environment, protect customer and employee confidential information, and comply with internal standards and regulatory requirements.
•\tResearch, plan, execute and oversee AIT activity that will challenge the organisations ability to detect & respond to cyber-attacks.
•\tLead test output and handover findings to remediation owners.
•\tProvide technical expertise to ensure compliance and quality standards at all times and assist in leading the technological direction of the team, through consultation, providing advice and mentoring.
•\tWorking collaboratively as part of a multi-functional matrix team of technical experts from across the CSO, Chief Information Office and the business, focused on dedicatedly improving the security posture of the Group.
•\tDeputise for Manager where required.
