What will you be doing?

WWT is currently seeking a Cyber Security Consultant with a strong background in Identity and Access Management (IAM) to support a wide range of clients, but this role is primarily involved with the delivery of IAM related services for cybersecurity engagements with Fortune 500 companies. The Consultant will be providing a multitude of services to assist clients with improving their overall IAM program maturity and the impacts that can have on their security posture. This will be accomplished by applying industry best practices and guidance from regulations, standards, and frameworks like the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF, 800-53, etc.), International Standards Organization (ISO 27001 & 2, etc.), Center for Internet Security (CIS), Payment Card Industry (PCI), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) among others.

This position is for a security consultant performing a range of services that include the creation and maturation of an enterprise cybersecurity program with an emphasis on IAM. Programs will be based on an analysis of a multitude of drivers (i.e., business, regulatory, risk, technical, potential solutions), analyzing the current state and determining a solution that addresses a chosen framework. Additional factors will be leading practices and best-of-breed solution recommendations based on the total cost of ownership, return on investment, and compatibility with existing architecture and programs. The candidate must be able to direct an engagement, including the development of an IAM maturity assessment and roadmap, planning, design, and implementation, along with the creation of professional-level deliverables. This individual will work under the direction of Consulting Services and other consulting staff. As required, the Consultant will participate with other key supporting roles for security, engineering, networking, and others needed to deliver an engagement from start to end successfully. This is not a managing role, but one must be willing to work as part of the engagement team.

Working in a team environment, the Consultant will be representing WWT as the subject matter expert on all areas specifically related to IAM as well as cybersecurity in general. The Consultant will possess specific skill sets related to cybersecurity processes, be technically diversified with security products and solutions related to data security and possess the expertise to participate in a project comprised of technical and non-technical members. The Consultant is expected to be certified on various platforms generally regarded as market leaders in the IAM space such as Sailpoint, Saviynt, Okta, Ping, CyberArk and BeyondTrust. The Consultant will have demonstrated knowledge of risk management methods and approaches to measuring effectiveness, understand and eloquently explain cybersecurity concepts, and have practical experience dealing with highly diverse technical environments. The required skill set will include a demonstrable ability in the development of professional-level deliverables and highly effective skills in the presentation and communication of the deliverables in terms of findings, recommendations, controls, and business level concepts to reduce the risk for WWT Clients.
