Job Description


Amazon Web Services (AWS) and serve customers and developers all over the world who rely on storage, compute, and other services that power Amazon’s consumer, digital and AWS businesses. Our customers trust us to handle their data with air-tight security. Customer data security is a given and a guarantee for our businesses.

Key job responsibilities
AWS’ Infrastructure team is looking for a detail-oriented, experienced and professional Cluster Security Manager. You will have experience managing security of large critical infrastructure installations, ideally data centers. You will have professional experience managing people with varying skill sets, devising strategies, creating, tracking and controlling budgets, sponsoring projects, and driving improvements of our security readiness. You will report to the Senior Security Manager responsible for your area.
Your responsibilities include maintaining an extensive knowledge of complex industry trends, current security issues and security technology, and the risks and threats that could impact the Data Centers; performing annual risk analysis for the Data Center sites, particularly with respect to levels of crime, terrorism, workplace violence, and threats from natural and man-made disasters; provide leadership and best practices on security policy and practices; provide leadership, advice, and guidance to AWS Data Center staff as well as contract security staff in achieving current and long-range strategic program objectives; serve as staff support to security management and assist in conducting investigations of significant threats and/or the loss or misappropriation of assets; and liaise with other Amazon, AWS and external security organizations to ensure optimal buy-in for their successful implementation.
You will routinely collaborate with your Data Center Security Managers, Cluster Security Managers and other regional security operations personnel to ensure that the data centers under your supervision provide a safe and secure environment and safeguard the vital information within. Your team will also educate stakeholders on the importance of emergency readiness, encourage a culture of security awareness, conduct regular drills and update all plans annually. You will be required to provide periodic performance, program and strategic roadmap briefings to AWS senior leaders.
The ideal candidate will be a confident, decisive, influential and innovative leader who can communicate a compelling and comprehensive set of outcomes to be achieved. You must have the presence and influence to define and enforce high standards for programs you implement and monitor at all levels. You must be comfortable with ambiguity, and can define structure, processes and standards where none yet exist. You must be able to deliver on our customer data security tenets and mission first; minimizing tradeoffs in cost, efficiency and operations friction. Written and verbal communications should be comprehensive, clear and precise.
