Reporting directly to the Chief Security Engineer (CSE), working alongside other members of the CSE's team, as well as the Architecture and Operations functions, the Lead Security Engineer will ensure secure engineering practices are in place across all parts of the enterprise, as well as support the CSE in delivering shared and central security solutions for use by business areas and the Security Operations team. The Lead Security Engineer's remit is global and cross-function. The Lead Security Engineer's global remit means international travel will be necessary, and the Security Engineering team will be spread across multiple countries (as legal, regulatory and logistic constraints require), primarily in the US and UK, but potentially, elsewhere in the future


* Design, build, delivery, maintenance and ongoing improvement of operational security systems and tools as directed by the CSE;
* Assisting in defining/selecting secure engineering frameworks, standards, patterns and guidelines for use by engineering and development teams across all business segments;
* Working directly with engineering and development teams as required to ensure secure engineering practices are embedded in development, test and operational systems; and

* Maintain up-to-date knowledge of emerging threats, vulnerabilities, and technology trends and developments relevant to security engineering.
* Assist in investigation of specific security technologies, products, methods and techniques to assess their potential benefit to the business.
* Recommend applicable certifications for Security Engineers, and actively support team progression towards those certifications.
* When directed by the CSE, assist in validation of technical aspects of strategic directives and subsequently help design, build and implement associated infrastructure, tools and methodologies.
* Take part in Change Control processes, change proposals/requests and assurance reviews to ensure security engineering aspects are considered and addressed.
* Actively support Security Improvement Programs across the enterprise, both centrally and within business segments.
* Maintain and develop a network of industry contacts to ensure the organisation benefits from the widest possible range of experience and knowledge from others in industry, and in return provides its own share of input to that common body of knowledge.
* Provide input to the CSE's library of Security Engineering documentation, including standards, frameworks, guidance and good practice.
* Contribute to Security Architecture / Security Operations / Governance, Risk and Compliance teams' policies, standards, processes and strategies as required.
