  • Able to manage both an internal and external audit function for customers and external audits both as a solo auditor and as an audit team leader
  • Provide assistance and guidance to management and staff regarding compliance issues, firm policies and procedures, and industry regulations
  • Track security and compliance-related KPIs and metrics, and assist with reporting on those metrics to senior management
  • Function under minimal direction and guided by specific objectives or statements from contracts and SOW, contract deliverables, and outcome metrics
  • Perform other compliance-related tasks as assigned

Desired Skills and Experience:

  • Strong knowledge of ISO 27001:2013 and PCI-DSS 3.2 and of the global data security regulatory environment
  • Knowledge of Finnish security requirements and agencies such as KATAKRI/VAHTI/NESA (National Emergency Supply Agency/Huoltovarmuuskeskus).
  • Proficiency in performing risk, business impact, control and vulnerability assessments using manual or automated tools;
  • Strong written and oral communication skills;
  • Organized, responsive and highly thorough problem solver;
  • Bachelor’s degree (or above) of computer science, network engineering, or relevant security-related experience;
  • Ability to research and interpret new rules and regulations;
  • Having one of the following certifications is helpful, but not required: CISA, CISSP, CRISC, CISM, or PCI-DSS ISA

The role requires fluency in both Finnish and English as well as the ability to pass a background security check. With strong expertise in your domain, problem-solving skills and attention to detail, you feel right at home with multicultural and international environment. As an important player in the team, you aim to provide excellent customer service by communicating difficult concepts clearly and by being flexible to changes.
