Position Summary
This position can be located at any of our 10 campuses throughout California.

The University of California is a premier higher education system spanning 10 campuses, 5 nationally ranked academic health systems and a national research laboratory. With over 238,000 students, over 190,000 employees, and over $27 billion dollars in revenue, the University represents a complex, diverse organization that stands as a leader in teaching, research, public service and patient care throughout California and the world. Critical to the success of the University is an effective cybersecurity program that works to ensure the adequate protection of information systems and data.
As a Cybersecurity Audit Specialist, you will join a highly specialized team that is responsible for conducting audits and advisory service projects to provide independent assurance that cybersecurity controls are implemented adequately and as designed to effectively reduce cyber-risks.

In addition, you will have deep knowledge and experience working with network configurations, protocols, operating systems, software, and web applications, etc. to identify vulnerabilities, and assess risk and IT control effectiveness. You will be expected to leverage this expertise, combined with frameworks, regulations, and other guidance, to evaluate cybersecurity posture of an organization. Essential to your success in this role will be strong analytic and IT technical skills to evaluate highly complex and diverse IT systems while maintaining the ability to understand and relate the risks to the organization's overall security posture.
Applicants will be expected to have a bachelor's degree in a related area and a minimum of ten years relevant experience, and/or equivalent experience/training.
