Center 2 (19050), United States of America, McLean, Virginia

Director, Technology & Cyber Risk Officer

Director, Technology & Cyber Risk Officer

Capital One is one of the fastest growing organizations in the world today. The growth of the business is being accelerated by leveraging innovative and emerging technologies. We are serious about technology, we dream big, and we execute: Capital One moved our entire enterprise to the public cloud over the course of five years, fully exiting our data centers. Just as we prioritize driving innovation through technology, we equally prioritize cybersecurity and managing technology risk. Technology Risk Management (TRM) is a small organization that packs a big punch. The roughly seventy professionals in TRM are trusted expert advisers who shape decisions, challenge activities to ensure they meet our standards, and generally oversee technology and information security risk across the business and the central technology organization. TRM is a second line organization, which means it is independent and reports up through the Chief Risk Officer.

Since its founding, Capital One has invested in developing cutting-edge digital and analytics capabilities in order to continually drive innovation. The Commercialization initiatives are now at the heart of these efforts. Our teams of product builders, designers, and technologists are building the next generation of software-as-a-service (SaaS) -- leveraging both Capital One's leading platform and technological capabilities, as well as building entirely new business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) constructs across the FinTech ecosystem.

This new position - Director, Technology & Cyber Risk Officer - will play a high impact role in assessing and enhancing the cybersecurity and technology risk posture for many high-profile Commercialization initiatives across the company. This includes identifying and assessing potential risks, engaging in challenge activities, and reimagining how we provide risk advisory and oversight for fledgling SaaS solutions. In addition to overseeing risk assessment activities, this role will be expected to identify opportunities to tailor existing risk frameworks for emerging businesses so that they can stay competitive with other FinTech companies. There will be frequent opportunities to highlight emerging risks and represent TRM's Line of Business risk view in many different risk forums and committees.

As a member of a growing organization, you are expected to shape and further refine the risk program, and will have the opportunity to operate with both autonomy and empowerment from senior leadership. The demands and high-visibility nature of this position require an individual with a proven ability to lead a high-performing team in a fast-paced environment. The successful candidate will be a seasoned leader with strong knowledge of technology or cyber risk, industry, and regulatory trends who can think strategically, be intellectually curious, is comfortable working in undefined problem spaces, and can influence stakeholders at all levels of the organization.

Desired Outcomes:

Establish a robust advisory and effective challenge model, aligned to each Line of Business, to facilitate deeper risk conversations and surface insights in support of strategic decision-making

Demonstrate strong judgment to balance being both a trusted advisor to the business and driving effective challenge

Leverage business and domain expertise to raise the level of challenge activities to a strategic focus

Constructively debate issues and connect the dots across various assessments (typically includes risk and control self-assessments, critical business process-level assessments, assessments of new initiatives, scenario analysis, challenge of risk acceptances)

Identify opportunities to influence risk-taking strategies and ensure that aggregate risk is understood

Succinctly frame emerging threats and risks, in contrast with the existing risk profile, across risk reporting and governance forums
