  • Build and execute on a roadmap that creates new capabilities and capacity for early detection and response to cyber-fraud incidents. The capabilities created through this roadmap empower our incident response team enabling the best visibility, situational awareness, and use-case automation.
  • Develop and maintain interactive dashboards to ensure effective situational awareness and visibility to prevention and response metrics.

  • Develop and maintain data models and structures to support advancing capabilities, creating and testing alternative methodologies and analysis techniques.
  • Transform data and information into insights that inform tactical response to incidents as well as strategic decision-making.
  • Develop and maintain an effective operating framework that can be applied to all global operations.
  • Foster and maintain ongoing team awareness of the cyber-fraud threat landscape, including through certification, continuing professional education (CPE), industry group participation, threat intelligence feeds, and direct research.
  • Speak internally and externally as a subject matter expert (SME) in big data as it relates to cyber-fraud prevention and response.
  • Support and encourage the identification and escalation of systemic issues, reoccurring problems, and unrelated threats/vulnerabilities to the appropriate business, risk, or control owners through the team’s Problem Management function.
