Cyber Security Project Manager

Who are We?

KBC Global Services is the engine behind KBC Group – a leading bank-insurance group with over 41,000 talented employees serving more than 12 million clients across Europe. 
Since 2021, we have been supporting the digital transformation of KBC Group providing software development, QA, AI and other IT solutions working on a wide range of projects combining classical IT with digital banking. 

Within Belgium, the Information Risk Management (IRM) directorate houses a critical team known as Application and Infrastructure Protection AIP. This team plays a crucial role in bolstering the organization's defenses by focusing on vulnerability management and preventing cyber events that could jeopardize cyber security levels. The team's efforts are geared towards safeguarding the availability and reliability of business services and products from various threats such as attacks, vulnerabilities, reputation risks, and fraud.

One of the crucial project tasks involves supporting the patch and vulnerability process, with the CREW (Cyber Risk Early Warning) process playing a vital role. The KBC Group CERT sends out CREW messages related to critical exploitable vulnerabilities, ensuring entities implement patches according to the Patch Policy. These highly critical patches are essential for maintaining business and production uptime.
Therefore we need a project manager with a good understanding of the patch and vulnerability process to help build the puzzle together, by following up, manage and improve the CREW process on a daily basis.

As project manager you’ll be the key SPOC and communicator for IRM BE towards our organisation and Group CERT. The project manager transforms KBC IRM prevention domain strategy into the processes he manages and also takes appropriate initiatives for implementing the patch and vulnerability processes into an operational stable CREW process.
