Wise is one the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got 14 million customers across the globe and we’re growing. Fast.
Current banking systems don't let us send, spend or receive money across borders easily. Or quickly. Or cheaply.
So, we’re building a new one.
What you’ll be working on
You will be working as part of the Security Squad in our Security Program team. This team is focused on the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) area of security, helping keep our systems secure for over 14 million customers.
As Wise becomes ever more integrated into financial systems around the globe, it is subject to ever greater scrutiny from regulators. If we’re successful, we’ll eventually become one of the most heavily regulated companies in the world. Your job will be to lead the team that oversees this program of work within the IT security space, developing new ways to scale regulatory compliance, working with other teams to create a Controls Environment that is whiter than white, and developing tooling that generates the evidence we need to prove it.
The team oversees various aspects of our security program, including engaging third parties for red team exercises and penetration testing. Determining and running security training for our team, and evolving our policies to better reflect our position and our processes.
Your team runs the risk management program for IT security, covering all aspects of security risk. Creating a risk taxonomy and regularly reviewing our risks in the light of our latest improvements, and the changing threat landscape we face.
The team is directly responsible for coordinating yearly audits for our key international certifications: ISO27001, SOC1, SOC2 and PCI DSS. And for coordinating our response to numerous other IT security audits coming from our regulators around the world. The team helps gather evidence, and empowers our regional teams to increasingly handle these requests using the resources the team provides.
Should any findings arise, the team works closely with the responsible owners to deliver a remediation plan, to track our progress and flag delivery risks.
