Job Posting – Cyber Security Architect

We are looking for a full-time, permanent cybersecurity professional

Overview

We are working with industry leaders and have established a cyber solution centre with state-of the-art cyber range capabilities focused on researching, assessing, and validating the security and resilience of a wide range of technologies, infrastructures, and systems for our customers.

Over the last few years, more and more Information Technology (IT) has been incorporated into Operational Technology (OT). An obvious by-product of this convergence is the introduction of cyber threats heretofore the exclusive domain of IT systems now targeting OT. Significant steps have been taken to protect OT from such threats, but as the convergence continues, risks to OT will continue to increase. We will generate innovative methods and commercialize products to mitigate these risks and protect municipal, provincial, and national critical infrastructures.

You have strong professional expertise in IT and OT and can understand complex principles and apply them practically.
