At Capital One, you’ll advise on strategic initiatives, programs, and projects to create business value in an agile manner.

The Director, Insider Threat, will collaborate with leaders in Office of Corporate Investigations, Legal, Human Resources, and across Internal Fraud teams to align on strategy and enforce the subsequent controls required to investigate and prevent insider threat activities such as intellectual property theft, data loss, IT Sabotage, Espionage, and general harm to corporate assets and reputation.

  • Recommend changes to practices and policies and help direct the operationalization and measure the effectiveness of program components. 

  • Influence leadership to invest appropriate resources and focus in the most critical areas for successful identification and mitigation of insider threat risks. 

  • Coordinate with the leaders of digital and physical investigations and provide operational and technical support to core systems utilized by the program and collaborate with stakeholders and team members to evolve the program over time. 

  • Provide guidance and direction to analysts that identify patterns & trends within attack and incident data for predictive analysis and strategic forecasting on Capital One’s cyber insider threat landscape.

  • Provide insight and recommendations on latest cybersecurity threats to the Cyber Senior Leadership team.

  • Set strategic direction and career pathing for direct reports.

  • This is a leadership role on a high-tempo team. To be successful in this role, you must be willing to participate in after-hours support of security incidents and/or threat activity which may involve work during non-standard hours when necessary.

About You:

  • You have expert knowledge of insider threat and investigations programs and the ability to communicate those threats to senior leadership.

  • You have experience in effectively understanding and communicating insider threat, people risk, and/or conduct risk program management.

  • You have a proven ability to lead and grow  a cybersecurity organization.
