The Role

We're looking for an Associate Information Security Governance, Risk & Compliance Analyst to join our growing Information Security team. This role will be reporting to the Manager of Information Security Governance, Risk & Compliance. Our security team works to create a strong Information Security function within GTI that enables the business to continue its tremendous growth. The Information Security Governance, Risk & Compliance Analyst is responsible for maintaining continuous compliance with security policies, industry laws and regulations (HIPAA, SOX, NIST, etc.). The candidate must communicate effectively with business partners and team members to help raise the level of security awareness, security compliance, and security risk. The candidate will perform environment-specific risk assessments factoring in both qualitative and quantitative risks, and assist with the deployment of various controls based on those assessments.

  • Work with IT and business stakeholders to perform ongoing internal and vendor risk assessments, providing reporting to stakeholders and ensuring appropriate action is taken.
  • Maintain an Information Security risk register and work with stakeholders on developing Corrective Action Plans to address risks.
  • Work with internal IT stakeholders for vulnerability management, ensuring vulnerabilities are remediated in accordance with policy and SLAs.
  • Work with IT and business stakeholders to perform ongoing compliance reviews in line with security policies, information security regulations (HIPAA, SOX/ITGC) and security frameworks (NIST, MITRE, etc.).
  • Assist with ongoing internal operations and tasks, including ITGC security reviews.
  • Assist with ongoing internal and external SOX and HIPAA audits and other security audits that are relevant to GTI's business.
  • Assist with the development and maintenance of Information Security policies, standards, and procedures, aligning with NIST.
  • Assist with the deployment of security training and awareness initiatives for the organization.
  • Participate in incident response tabletops, business continuity tests, and other compliance activities and exercises.
  • Maintain KPIs and KRIs for Information Security risk & compliance activities.
  • Execute tasks as a member of the Information Security team as assigned by management.

  • 1+ year of experience with responsibilities relating to security and compliance.
  • Bachelor's degree or higher in Information Security or Information Technology can help you stand out, but not required.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills.
  • Conceptual understanding of Information Security theories.
  • Knowledge of network, application, and cloud security controls.
  • Knowledge of NIST, MITRE, OWASP, HIPAA and SOX.
  • Strong problem-solving skills with well-organized and structured work habits.
  • Security certifications, such as CRISC or CDPSE can help you stand out, but not required.
  • We're doing some big things, and we'll find some roadblocks along the way, big and small. A big part of this role is keeping an even keel and finding the route through or around the obstacles.
  • This role requires lots of communication with customers and everyone at GTI. Your colleagues will rely on your ability to translate security requirements into digestible bits of information for them. Customers will expect you to quickly articulate components of the GTI security program to help them assess risk, including as part of the business development process.
