Who You Are and What You’ll Do

You fancy yourself a security acrobat, flexible to adapt to any client’s situation. Problem-solving is second nature to you, and you enthusiastically rise to any challenge. Personality-wise, you’re firm, confident, and personable; however, you’re by no means cocky or unapproachable. You can walk into a room, begin speaking, and people immediately sense that you know your subject exceptionally well. Furthermore, you have a gift for putting people at ease.                                                              

In this role, you’ll analyze client issues and create practical solutions. Every step of the way, you’ll ensure that we’re staying true to the client’s business model. You’ll work with companies ranging from major brand names to up-and-coming startups, and handle security concerns on their behalf. They will come to you for guidance and support with security-related issues, and you will provide them with the expertise they seek. Frequently, you will collaborate with startups and medium-sized businesses, addressing security questions that must be answered for these businesses to reach the next level.   

With Bishop Fox, you will design processes and identify technical controls to implement security objectives. Your days will consist of conducting compliance assessments, developing security policies, and for our startup clients, writing security controls. You’ll understand every client is different, and thus, every approach must be different. You’ll know current leading practices inside and out, and apply them as needed.

As a consultant, you’ll solve challenging technical problems and build creative solutions—focusing on governance, risk, and compliance. As a trusted advisor, you’ll provide your expert opinion to help our clients navigate difficult business decisions.
