What You'll Do

This role will work with cross functional organizations within Cisco to work to ensure 3rd party risks are managed across our ever changing business. You will be responsible for the strategy and partnerships internally to operationalize the security, data protection and privacy policy and governance for everything Cisco sells: traditional hardware, to software to cloud to components.

You will build on a robust and mature value chain security program, continuing to refine it while increasing focus on software and cloud.

You will partner with targeted customers to further the understanding of Cisco's practices and get input to help evolve with external expectations

Who You'll Work With

The Security and Trust Organization has corporate-level responsibility for customer data protection and compliance, corporate information protection, and government and product security.

A fundamental part of product security is ensuring the integrity of the physical security, operational security, behavioral security and information security of all third parties who are involved in the lifecycle of any Cisco offering, whether software, cloud service or hardware.

Security is a key concern of our customers and a top investment area for Cisco. Join us and help us continue to earn our customers trust and remain the #1 Trusted IT Company in the World.

This group uses a federated/extended team approach to address the security of all third parties involved in the lifecycle of any Cisco offering (the value chain)

The team continues to evolve the security requirements and goals for all third parties in Ciscos value chain but it does not directly deploy the requirements. Rather, the team coordinates intimately with the internal Cisco organizations to implement the value chain security architecture with those third parties for whom the Cisco organizations own the commercial relationship. For example, the team works directly with the Global Partner Organization to implement the customized requirements/goals for the Cisco Channel the InfoSec team to implement the customized requirements/goals for third party Cloud Service providers who are part of our Cisco Cloud Offerings.

We Are Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Heres how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do you cant put us in a box!

But Digital Transformation is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool.
