Description

Identifi Global Resources is searching for a Cyber Security Consultant that can help conceptualise, develop, and deliver transformative cyber related projects.

You would play a key role in ensuring the wider team meet its strategic objectives to build the economy and develop businesses to service the advanced urban services and intelligent mobility sectors.


As cities harness new technology for better service provision, they are also increasingly relying on a complex, fragmented and ever-changing technology landscape in which it is crucial to maintain an adequate level of cybersecurity. Cyber related policy is often underdeveloped or inconsistent across regions, and the cost of cyber-attacks for local authorities go well beyond the financial, affecting wellbeing and critical service delivery for many in their areas. Your role would seek to address this imbalance by delivering and advising on Cyber policy.
