Certification in one of the following will be beneficial: CISSP, CISM, CISA or some other related certificate.

You must hold an active (or reinstatable) Australian Government Security Clearance to be eligible for this role. Baseline minimum, NV1 preferred. 

Though not an exhaustive list, typical duties will involve:

  1. Ensuring systems are protected against unauthorised access or compromise.

  3. Developing and updating IT security documentation and providing reports for stakeholders
