  • Review security advisories and updates, related press releases, and certification and attestation communications

  • Advise on security-related regulatory responsibilities and assist with investigations of product and information security incidents and other activities, as requested

  • Work closely with the Public Policy team to monitor and evaluate emerging legislative and policy initiatives in this area

  • Work closely with the Information Security and Data Protection teams, as requested

  • Assist with negotiating customer and vendor agreements, particularly those involving managed services, IT, and information security; serve as a security subject matter expert and respond to customer security questions and requests

  • Support members of the Legal team in areas of system and software design related to security

  • Create, maintain, and provide security-related awareness training, contract templates, playbooks, and governance documents; participate in periodic internal and external audits, reviews, and assessments of Red Hat's offerings and controls and implement appropriate risk mitigations and lessons learned

  • Promote the importance of a solid culture of security, provide regular updates to senior management, and lead or support security-related initiatives, as necessary

What you will bring

  • Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree plus admission to practice law in at least one jurisdiction

  • 3+ years of product or information security experience in a law firm, government entity, or in-house team; solid expertise in and working knowledge of global security standards and frameworks like NIST-related cyber guidance, ISO, FedRAMP, HIPAA, or PCI and experience supporting the development of cloud applications and related software offerings are a plus

  • Experience negotiating customer and vendor agreements related to information security requirements

  • Comfortable analyzing product and cybersecurity concepts and methodologies with the ability to effectively communicate technical concepts and implement pragmatic solutions in support of the creation, enhancement, and implementation of robust and globally consistent policies, procedures, controls, and systems for Red Hat's product and information security programs

  • Good analytical abilities to quickly understand complex cybersecurity concepts and regulatory requirements and support the development and appropriate communication of security bulletins, remedial measures, and controls

  • Demonstrated ability to establish and maintain appropriate working relationships with all levels of an organization and external contacts, and to work effectively in a professional team environment

  • Excellent writing and interpersonal skills, sound judgment, and ability to inspire and collaborate with others in a growing global business
