What does a Strategist do?

Strategists understand how to help clients develop and put into action a strategy that enables them to build the business they need for the future and make sure that it is secure by design.

Being part of the strategist team will mean that you will develop yourself in technology and digital strategy and decision support and build the company’s ability to solve clients most complex business strategy challenges in the digital age.

This tends to be a senior level position and may involve directing and approving the design of security systems whilst ensuring that disaster recovery and business continuity plans are in place and tested. They will need to review and approve security policies, controls and cyber incident response planning and approve identity and access policies. Furthermore they will review investigations after breaches or incidents, including impact analysis and recommendations for avoiding similar vulnerabilities. To do this the strategist will need to maintain a current understanding of the IT threat landscape for the industry.

Strategists must also ensure compliance with the changing laws and applicable regulations and be able to translate that knowledge to identification of risks and actionable plans to protect the business. Strategists will also schedule periodic security audits; oversee identity and access management and make sure that cyber security policies and procedures are communicated to all personnel and that compliance is enforced.
