Career Opportuntiy For Aspiring InfoSec Leader – NY City

July 14, 2011

There is a good deal of discussion on this site about the lack of good “entry” level opportunities in the information security professional.   Recently, we were just engaged on a role that I think would be excellent for a “Future Infomration Security Leader” – who may be long on passion, but short on experience.

The role has all the elements for career development and success -fair compensation,  training budget, education assistance (which is getting more rare nowadays), good benefits, and a stable/socially responsible organization.

In addition, I know the CISO for about a decade, he is a class act, down to earth, and is committed to developing his people.

Below, you will find the description.

New York City – Midtown –    

The person that I am looking for would have about 2-4 years of work experience, and have an appetite for learning.  Ideally they would come from a technical background – in either security,consulting, systems administration, development, etc – but have a real passion for information security – and be open to learning/operating – information security tools (DLP, Vuln Management, Encryption, etc.)  – and have a desire to eventually learn more about risk assessment, risk management, governance and compliance.

Compensation is fair – about 75-90K with a small bonus.  No Travel.

 10K annually in tuition reimbursement – for undergrad or masters.  Very good healthcare benefits.

CISO will support one major training/conference a year – SANS/BH etc, and anything local to NY (OWASP/ISSA/CitySec)  Vendor/Product training as well.

If anyone, who meets these qualifications and currently lives in commuting distance of mid-town NYC, is interested, please e-mail our office = with  NY Security Position – in the subject line.

Anyone whose resume reflects the qualifications contained in the e-mail, will be contacted within 2 business days of receipt – by either me or one of my Senior Information Security recruitment professionals.

    Can I just say, I am awestruck!

    Just the other day I was thinking about how to transition into InfoSec, and if I didn’t live in Australia this ‘opportunity of a lifetime’ would have been it!

    I still honestly can’t believe the opportunity that has been laid down before us here by Lee!

    My goodness!
