Why is our Enterprise Security team the next step for you?

The Threat & Vulnerability team sits within our Enterprise Security function and has global responsibility for ensuring security testing and vulnerability assurance work streams meet the Worldpay business and risk objectives. 

In this role, you will lead and develop the Worldpay Threat and Vulnerability team. You will ensure that key security controls related to vulnerability assurance and penetration testing are managed in order to provide security assurance information to the Cyber Security team.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

In this role, you will head up key work streams performed by the Threat & Vulnerability team, including vulnerability management, configuration compliance, web application scanning, bug bounty programme, penetration testing, red teaming and phishing. We will want you to develop the internal penetration testing team, manage and prioritise workloads for the team, and take the lead role in risk management activities and escalations related to the threat and vulnerability management control space.

You will ensure that all projects and new initiatives are scoped correctly, to ensure that key threats are modelled and highlighted in order to form an appropriate security test plan. You’ll review and govern the vulnerability management process, take the lead in ensuring PCI DSS requirements relating to vulnerability management and penetration testing are met, as well as review and govern the hardening process to ensure it aligns with Worldpay security requirements.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

We will want you to demonstrate deep knowledge of vulnerability management tools and processes and strong experience with penetration testing review and assurance. You will have team lead and people management experience, strong risk management skills and deep knowledge of application security and secure development standards.

Experience of the payment processing industry or security of financial networks are ideal, as well as project management experience. You will be CISSP qualified and certifications like CISM, Prince2, CHECK and ITIL are advantageous.
