NYC 299 Park Avenue (22957), United States of America, New York, New York Director, Technology & Cyber Risk Officer

Capital One is one of the fastest growing organizations in the world today, powered by our passion for our customers. 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. Just as we prioritize driving innovation through technology, we equally prioritize cybersecurity, reliability, and managing technology risk.

For years, the cybersecurity community has debated whether the CISO should report to the CIO or not. In regulated financial services, the answer is: both. The first-line CISO has operational responsibilities and reports to the CIO. The second-line Chief Tech Risk Officer (CTRO) and the Technology Risk Management (TRM) organization have broader responsibilities for cybersecurity but also reliability, software quality, resilience, and other technology risks. The CTRO is independent, reports to the Chief Risk Officer, and oversees the work of the CISO and the CIO.

Technology Risk Management (TRM) is a small organization that packs a big punch. The ~100 professionals in TRM are trusted experts who oversee ~14,000 developers at Capital One. We raise the bar for excellence in cybersecurity, reliability, and tech risk. We shape strategy and decisions, challenge activities to ensure they meet our standards, and perform independent tests of our security and technology risk.

Our business leaders must make technology decisions constantly. TRM makes sure they have the tech risk information they need to make good decisions. Associates within TRM are highly-skilled information security, cybersecurity, site reliability engineering, technology, and risk management professionals. They have a wealth of experience and a demonstrated ability to add value with their advice and to deliver high-impact results.
