Provide the design, implementation and management support of Computing Infrastructures and Applications within the Purdue IT environment. Principle accountabilities include providing Technology Solutions to advance the Business. This group also sets technical priorities, standards and procedures and provides expertise in the area of computer technology, business processes, application development, project quality, systems validation and training. The information security manager (ISM) is a critical member of the IT Security Director's team. The ISM's role - which is a midlevel managerial position - is to act as an interface between the IT Security Director's strategic and process-based activities and the work of the technology-focused analysts, engineers and administrators in the IT organization. The ISM must be able to translate the IT-risk requirements and constraints of the business into technical control requirements and specifications, as well as develop metrics for ongoing performance measurement and reporting. The ISM coordinates the IT organization's technical activities to implement and manage security infrastructure, and to provide regular status and service-level reports to management. The ISM is a leadership role that requires an individual with a strong technical background, as well as an ability to work with the IT organization and business management to align priorities and plans with key business objectives. The ISM will act as an empowered representative of the IT Security Director during IT planning initiatives to ensure that security measures are incorporated into strategic IT plans and that service expectations are clearly defined. The ISM will also be responsible for working with business and IT stakeholders to balance real-world risks with business drivers such as speed, agility, flexibility and performance. Expertise in leading project teams and developing and managing projects is essential for success in this role. In addition to supporting the IT Security Director's policies and strategies, the ISM must be able to prioritize work efforts - balancing operational tasks with longer-term strategic security efforts. Other project management tasks will include resource balancing across multiple IT and security teams, task prioritizing and project reporting. Vendor relationship management - ensuring that service levels and vendor obligations are met - is also an important aspect of the position. ISMs are responsible for managing highly technical staff as they work to accomplish company and personal development goals and must, therefore, have proven leadership skills. Documentation and presentation skills, analytical and critical thinking skills, and the ability to identify needs and take initiative are key requirements of the ISM's position. IT personnel responsible for managing technical security infrastructure may report directly to the ISM or may report to other areas of IT operations (for example, networking, servers or database management), with their security-related activities coordinated by the ISM.
