Data Loss Prevention Specialist

The Challenge:

Protecting an ocean of data. Navigating the threats—cyber-criminals, malicious insiders, a fluid regulatory landscape, and fundamental changes to business such as the growth of remote work— requires balancing business priorities and regulatory requirements. Although many data protection tools are available to anchor a data loss prevention program, it’s the defender at the helm that makes the difference.

We're looking for an experienced defender who knows how to overcome the challenges of protecting data. You’ll use your experience and analytical skills to work with relevant business and regulatory teams to craft data loss prevention solutions that enable compliant business. You will also work with our team of experienced data loss incident analysts to analyze incident data, recognize trends, identify visibility gaps, and drive improvements to the firm's data security posture. With your technical expertise, you’ll build creative solutions to improve the firm's defense of its data. This position is open to remote delivery anywhere within the U.S., to include the District of Columbia
