Interim Cyber Security Consultant - PSR 1JP00018000

We have put together and started to execute on a fairly substantial portfolio of projects across the CGB to use this money for its stated purpose - this involves specific activity on individual systems, as well as building central capabilities to help reduce tech debt impacts.

You work will guide specific additional mitigations - be that technical, procedural, or otherwise - to address the cyber security risks they have identified in legacy systems, with specific focus on the ‘top 40’.

  • Monitor current reports of computer viruses to determine when to update virus protection systems;
  • Modify computer security files to incorporate new software, correct errors, or change individual access status;

  • Train users and promote security awareness to ensure system security and to improve server and network efficiency.
