The Global Cyber Security Defence team (GCSD) provides IT security operational services to Aviva markets; responding to information security/cyber threats, vulnerabilities and incidents whilst minimising the adverse impact to Aviva, its customers and partners.

Transitioning legacy products to new global services, you'll improve our formal service catalogue and ensure targets and obligations are met.


GCSD is undergoing a global transformation and we're looking for people to help drive forward our projects. Exploring avenues of innovation that align with existing services as well as investigating new areas of potential, you'll understand how oversight and governance combine to produce useful metrics, insights and generate recommendations on remediation.
