Sr.Specialist Information Security Analyst- Security & Audit Response (Security Monitoring)

Job Description

As a global investments company, BNY Mellon can act as a single point of contact for clients looking to create, trade, hold, manage, service, distribute or restructure investments, and safeguards nearly one-fifth of the world's financial assets. Every day, our Technology employees make this happen while also seeking out new ways to do it more efficiently and effectively.

As part of BNY Mellon’s global Technology organization, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with some of the best and brightest, technology, business, and financial minds to find new and better ways to exceed our clients’ expectations and build the future of financial services. With more than 230 years of industry leading experience under our belts, you might even say that we are the original fintech.


At BNY Mellon, cybersecurity is a top priority for both technology and the business. The members of the Information Security Division are on constant alert, using their creativity and knowledge of cybersecurity, technology and business processes to develop and deliver creative solutions. In this fast-paced environment, staff collaborate to respond to current risks, while identifying and anticipating future threats. Our cyber capabilities encompass the full spectrum of services from Cyber Operations (SOC, Cyber Threat Intelligence, Vulnerability Management, Cyber Incident Response, Penetration Testing & Red Teaming, Cyber Analytics & Fraud, and Insider threat) to Cyber Architecture and Engineering (Network, Platform, Cloud, and Applications Security).  Together with the CISO and his leadership team, staff provide a robust set of cyber services that provide full scope protection and response capabilities across the BNY Mellon enterprise.  We help our businesses, the bank’s executive team, and our board of directors understand cybersecurity risk and the steps that must be taken to create and maintain a secure environment that drives innovation.

 


We are looking for a candidate to be a member of a team that represents Security Monitoring interests and will drive thought leadership and delivery with regard to the planning, preparation, coordination, and dissemination of technology controls and audit response within the BNY Mellon's Information Security Division and Security Operations departments.

This is a critical, technology-specific role in our audit response process that will involve meeting with auditors/assessors (preparation phase), harvesting auditor/assessor requirements (input phase), collecting and preparing evidence (processing phase), and delivering/presenting the evidence to auditor/assessor (output phase). 

While the role is related to the handling, retrieval, workflow, and technology-specific triage/communication functions within our Audit Response Team, it is not directly an auditor role. However, individuals with an auditor/assessor or similar background would be notable candidates. 

 

Description

A successful candidate excels at autonomous load-balancing of static and dynamic work streams from internal and external “customers,” communicates efficiently on multiple date and demand-driven inbound requests, communicates autonomously on status updates, escalation needs, and forward momentum, and thrives in juggling multiple requests while delivering crisp, quality-driven data through fact-finding missions involving multiple teams and associates.

The position will infrequently (<10%) require off-hour and weekend scheduling to coordinate with multiple time zones and global teams.

 

Ownership Areas

  • Determine needs and participate in the technology-specific build and development of audit-related activities, including automated collection and retrieval of evidence.

  • Execute audit-response activities including scoping, triage, tracking, and defining time/delivery requirements related to audit evidence dissemination.

  • Act as technical expert and representative for the Audit Response Team while liaising with other internal teams and external audit/consulting agencies.

  • Evaluate, curate, and propose improvements in areas of quality control, process improvement, evidence collection, remediation planning, and workflow. 

  • Align with team handbook, work tracking guidance, and data classification policies. 

  • Engage in Audit Response Team activities including the build-out of knowledge-base repositories, advanced remediation for anticipated audit findings, workload forecasting, and regular tracking of work-effort, action, meeting, and escalation summaries driven by daily work.

  • Create, triage, and peer review during the evidence collection life cycle. Ensure dissemination of audit evidence in alignment with internal confidentiality standards and controls.

  • Engage in precision-based communications with counterparts and suppliers of audit evidence with various teams by using verbal and non-verbal communications, including form-based questionnaires/responses, emails, goal-oriented meetings, and agile work-tracking methodologies to ensure awareness and ownership throughout all phases of investigative triage and response.

  • Aim to execute communication with internal/external Auditors and Subject Matter Experts with minimal mistakes to negotiate and execute resources to deliver responses, action plans, and remediation efforts in a manner and on a schedule approved by firm policy.

  • Demonstrate ownership and leadership to peers and other teams to meet goals.  Engage with the firm’s GRC practices to assist in delivery process.

  • Interpret and maintain a strong working knowledge of the federal/state policies, with a focus on Financial Services.

  • Provide support to commercial organizations by responding to regulatory reviews (FFIEC, NY DFS), and by creating/optimizing existing cyber capabilities and programs.

  • Skillfully distill and articulate complex messages in written and oral forms for technical and non-technical audiences.

  • Align solutions with business needs, create innovative approaches to address audit request challenges, and build on collaborative efforts related to internal and external relationships.

  • Collaborate and contribute to technical writing and documentation initiatives.
