Special Required Qualifications
Must possess U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status
Recognized auditing qualification such as CIA, CISA or CISSP and a proficient understanding of industry accepted IT governance standards. Broad knowledge of security frameworks and a proficiency in at least one compliance regulation (ie. Sox, PCI, NIST, FedRamp, HIPAA). Experience in project management and proficient in MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
The ISU Security team is looking for a compliance manager to join our growing team. Our mission is to protect sensitive data across campus and maintaining regulatory compliance is an important part of that mission. We're building the ISU security team to cover four specializations: application security, incident response, infrastructure security, and compliance. The incumbent in this role will own our compliance program and focus on two main areas: PCI DSS and NIST 800-171. Your role on the team will be primarily consultative and not focused on auditing. For most regulations, the ISU security team isn't responsible for attesting to our compliance, but we are the technical liaison to assess, track, and remediate technical control deficiencies. Your primary responsibility will be providing guidance to the campus community on how best to align with each regulation.
To be successful in this role, you should have strong oral communication, business writing, and presentation skills. Youâll be working with many different stakeholder groups, so your ability to guide and influence them is another important skill. Each environment at the university is unique, so you should be good at learning business processes and evaluating the unique risks for each one.
