Bring your bold ideas and fearless risk-taking to redefine connectivity and transform how the world shares stories and experiences that matter. When you step into a career with AT&T, you won’t just imagine the future – you’ll create it.

The Director Cybersecurity is responsible for developing a software supply chain security strategy in response to recent federal guidance and lead a team to execute on that strategy.

This will include repository services, repository firewalls, software composition analysis, static code review, dynamic application security testing, run-time protection and other tools.
  • Partner with user teams to ensure security processes support the inclusion of key controls in an efficient manner. One key aspect of this effort will include making tailored security requirements available in portfolio management systems and ensuring those requirements have automated testing available via the supported security tool suite.
  • Oversee team members to ensure execution of software security strategy on time and budget. Includes typical responsibilities of personnel management, issue escalation, communication with senior management and daily administrative tasks.

Qualifications:

  • Preferred Master's Degree in Information Systems, Engineering, Mathematics or Cyber Security related fields.
  • Typically requires 10 or more years of experience.
  • CISSP, Azure or other security certifications desired
  • Experience with secure S-DLC tools and techniques
