Sr. Manager, Cyber Audit & Exams

As a member of the highly regulated financial industry, Capital One is subject to numerous examinations conducted by various government organizations. Coupled with the rise of cyber attacks on our customers’ financial and personal data, the Cyber organization is a focal point of many of these examinations. Additionally, in support of complying with this government oversight and our own internal risk management framework, Capital One’s Corporate Audit Services (CAS) conducts frequent audits of the Cyber organization, its processes, and security controls.

The candidate will provide leadership to members of the Cyber AEL team, facilitating knowledge sharing of best practices and industry trends, and contributing to their career development.
