My team ensures the right level of security controls are applied across our technology infrastructure to meet business goals while mitigating risks. We are responsible for translating security risks and controls into real value and impact so the firm can make the best risk-based decisions. We run several projects simultaneously, so no two days are the same. These projects could range from network security and segmentation, identity and access management, mobility and remote access, security monitoring and incident response, and development of security tools and automation. Our projects require us to collaborate with our Network and Systems Engineering, Business Analysis, Software Development, and Support teams. We are constantly prioritizing and shifting resources to ensure that we are working on the most impactful work, so if a large security incident or vulnerability comes up, we go into incident response and mitigation mode.
Technology is recognized as a critical aspect of SIG’s business. Your ideas and contributions can make a big impact on the firm. You get to work with cutting-edge enterprise technologies, including both custom internally-developed tools and vendor solutions.
I lead a team responsible for engineering solutions that keep SIG’s information secure. The wide variety of knowledge and expertise required to do this job is amazing. My team needs to be knowledgeable in networking, systems, security, and application development, as well as understand SIG’s business goals and the legal and compliance risks that come with them.
At SIG, I have had mentors, leads, and managers that were invested in my personal development. They went above and beyond to help me grow and have helped me develop a successful career.
The people. The Information Security team and the entire technology department are filled with very talented and smart individuals. There is an overall focus on collaboration, which allows us to challenge and encourage each other every day.
I was fascinated by how technology can be broken into or hacked to do things that its creator did not intend.
I love traveling. I have visited about 150 cities and 22 countries across 6 continents. The only continent I haven’t been to is Antarctica.
