Security Architect (Senior Consultant to Senior Manager), Industrial Cyber– ICS/OT Cyber, Cyber Risk

Your opportunity

Industrial (ICS/OT) Security is one of the fastest growing areas in Cyber. Organisations across the industrial, energy, mining, manufacturing, utilities, transport and medical sectors that use OT are going through significant change. They are driving operational performance improvements by harnessing the potential of interconnected enterprise IT systems, OT and IoT systems and third parties, creating integrated supply and value chains.

This new way of working is increasing the requirement for improved Cyber Security at an unprecedented rate - accelerated further by the recent increase in OT and IoT cyber incidents that have brought numbers of large industrial and manufacturing organisations to a standstill. We have first-hand knowledge of many of these incidents as we have supported numerous response, recovery and transformation programmes – as a result of which we now possess deep insight  into what is required to keep these organisations operational and able to achieve meaningful management of their OT cyber related risks.

Our clients are some of the largest UK and global organisations some of which are critical to our society and every-day way of life. It is the purpose of the Industrial Cyber team in Deloitte to support our clients in helping them implement robust cyber defences and helping them to stay operational and recover from attack as they embrace digitalisation and transformation in an increasingly challenging environment. We are there for all of our clients OT Cyber needs: we assess, design, and implement and manage solutions to reduce the risk of high impact cyber-attacks. Our approach is fully aligned to the business so that we can make a meaningful change to the risk with the appropriate business context.

You will be joining a team of 400 plus cyber practitioners in the UK and nearly ten thousand globally.  You will have access to one of the world largest cyber professional services networks with extremely talented individuals across all cyber disciplines. Our team brings together people who graduated in everything from Philosophy to Law, Maths and Computer Science. Join them and you will operate at the cutting edge, enjoying the kind of professional development that will set your potential free.

Your role

You will have a passion and curiosity, for cyber and technology in complex engineering environments, with diverse multidisciplined stakeholders. The key to working with clients in challenging environments is an understanding of culture, operational process and a pragmatic risk orientated approach. We therefore require people who know how to bridge the cultural gap, who understand risk and cyber security and who can drive leadership and change in a fast-paced engineering environment.

At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk.
