"Whilst somewhat biased, I think it is an incredibly exciting time to be involved in Information Security, and an even more exciting time to be involved in Information Security at Allianz!

We’ve been on an incredible journey in the past twelve months, reorganising and expanding the Allianz team, as well as establishing a new LV= GI team, culminating in the creation of a single Information Security function across Allianz Holdings.  In addition we’ve completed a well known regulatory penetration test, as well as continued to deliver our Cyber Security Programme.

It is as important to me that we get the right skills and experience, as it is that we get the right people attributes and cultural fit, so we can build a truly exceptional team that comes together to become a gold standard, best in industry, Information Security team.  We of course need out and out Information Security experts, but the so called Information Security skills gap isn’t going to close its self, so if you have transferable skills or experience, please do think about making an application.

It’s an incredibly exciting time to be in Information Security, or to get into Information Security even, so please do not be shy!"
