Job Description

Are you energized by helping organizations protect their data and build client trust? Do you want to work in one of the world's largest holistic internal cybersecurity organizations? If you're interested in proactively preventing, detecting, and responding to cyber attacks across a complex global footprint, then Deloitte Global could be the perfect place for you. We're looking for an analytical thinker passionate about cybersecurity to join our team.

Work you'll do:

As part of the Global Cybersecurity team, this professional will:

* Manage and coordinate strategic projects on behalf of the global CISO (for example, assist in defining strategic priorities for CISO)

* Manage and coordinate tactical projects to address vital and/or urgent cybersecurity operational priorities (for example, optimize an immature security process)

* Develop and maintain relationships in security, technology, and business organizations necessary to effectively execute special security projects

What you'll be part of-our Deloitte Global culture:

At Deloitte, we expect results. Incredible-tangible-results. And Deloitte Global professionals play a unique role in delivering those results. We reach across disciplines and borders to serve our global organization. We are the engine of Deloitte. We develop and lead global strategies and provide programs and services that unite our network.

In Deloitte Global, everyone has an opportunity to lead. We see the importance of your perspective and your ability to create value. We want you to fit in-with an inclusive culture, focus on work-life fit and well-being, and a supportive, connected environment; but we also want you to stand out-with opportunities to have a strategic impact, innovate, and take the risks necessary to make your mark.

Deloitte Global supports our talented professionals in answering the question: What impact will you make?

Who you'll work with:

The Deloitte Global Cybersecurity function is responsible for enhancing data protection, standardizing and securing critical infrastructure, and gaining cyber visibility through security operations centers. The Cybersecurity organization delivers a comprehensive set of security services to Deloitte's global network of firms around the globe.

This role is based in Chicago, IL with travel of up to 25%. Other locations may be considered with relocation assistance considered on a case by case basis.

How you'll grow:

Deloitte Global inspires leaders at every level. We believe in investing in you, helping you embrace leadership opportunities at every step of your career, and helping you identify and hone your unique strengths. We encourage you to grow by providing formal and informal development programs, coaching and mentoring, and on-the-job challenges. We want you to ask questions, take chances, and explore the possible.

Benefits you'll receive:

Deloitte's Total Rewards program reflects our continued commitment to lead from the front in everything we do - that's why we take pride in offering a comprehensive variety of programs and resources to support your health and well-being needs. We provide the benefits, competitive compensation, and recognition to help sustain your efforts in making an impact that matters.

To be considered for this role, there are certain qualifications you'll have to have. And others that would be really, really nice.
