At NVR, the Information Security Manager (ISM) is a critical member of the Chief Information Security Officer's (CISO's) team.

This leadership role requires an individual with a strong technical background, as well as an ability to work with the IT organization and business management to align priorities and plans with key business objectives. You will act as an empowered representative of the CISO during IT architectural review and other governance processes to ensure that security measures are incorporated and that service expectations are clearly defined. The ISM is also responsible for working with business and IT stakeholders to balance real-world risks with business drivers such as speed, agility, flexibility, and performance.
