IBM 2021 Security Consultant Graduate - Melb/Syd/Canberra

We’re looking for passionate, original thinkers to join us as part of our graduate consultant program; The IBM Services Associate Program.

Cybersecurity isn’t just about hackers and defences. It’s about people and the way security impacts their daily lives. Protecting the world is an ambitious goal, but an important one that unites us. Our mission drives the way we design security solutions. It guides the way we serve customers and help organizations and communities reach their potential. To make this mission a reality, we hire world-class talent, which doesn’t live inside a security bubble. We look for people who share our values and ambitions, not necessarily those with a background in security.

  • Helping clients identify their ‘crown jewels’ to protect and undertaking cost estimates for a potential breach so they can prioritise their investments and spend where it matters most
  • Providing cyber capability uplift to raise awareness of malicious activity and risk – explain terms like social engineering and insider threats, assist with training and talks on this
  • Helping write points of view and thought papers for government legislation that relates to cyber security
  • Help assess cyber risk maturity against a range of compliance and legal frameworks
  • Work with technology teams to help strengthen cyber vulnerabilities and communicate to Boards, committees, and their broader stakeholders about cyber risk priorities
  • Assist with client delivery on projects ranging from building cyber roadmaps through to their cloud journey
  • Cloud security advisory – readiness for cloud, which cloud journey to take and how to protect workloads in the cloud
