Sr. Director - Site Reliability Engineering / DevOps Oversight, Technology Risk Management
Capital One is one of the fastest growing organizations in the world today. The growth of the business is being accelerated by leveraging innovative and emerging technologies. 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, fully exiting our data centers. Just as we prioritize driving innovation through technology, we equally prioritize cybersecurity and managing technology risk. Technology Risk Management (TRM) is a small organization that packs a big punch. The roughly seventy professionals in TRM are trusted expert advisers who shape decisions, challenge activities to ensure they meet our standards, and generally oversee technology and information security risk across the business and the central technology organization. TRM is a second line organization, which means it is independent and does not sit within the technology organization.
TRM plays a critical role in ensuring that the company's risk-taking entities are aware of the risks inherent in their activities and decisions, the impact of their actions on the company at an enterprise level, and opportunities to reduce, mitigate or avoid the risks altogether. Associates within TRM are highly-skilled information security, cybersecurity, site reliability engineering, technology, and risk management professionals who have a wealth of experience and a demonstrated ability to provide value added recommendations and deliver high-impact results in their areas of expertise.
