On Thursday, the Department of Defence put out a call for a new chief information security officer (CISO), nearly three months after the departure of the previous post-holder.

Former Defence CISO Lindsay Morgan traded the top job for a private sector gig with German software firm SAP in April, after a tenure of some 11 months.

The department put out the call for a “dynamic and outstanding senior executive” to fill the vacancy last week, nearly three months after the fact. 

Prior to departing Defence, Morgan had held a number of priority roles across the department's cyber security suite across 10 years of service – including director of cyber security operations and vulnerability management.

According to the posted job description, the SES Band 1 level executive who steps into Morgan's shoes will “provide advice and guidance on significant cyber security risks that contribute to Defence’s overall security performance and agency level risk”.

Defence expects the successful candidate will have “extensive experience in ICT security, including in more than one organisation", and be able to obtain a Top Secret Positive Vetting.

“You will require knowledge and practice in delivering ICT cyber security strategy, the conduct of ICT cyber security operations, and providing cyber security technical direction in a large, complex and diverse organisation,” the job ad stated.

The role will also involve overseeing “all ICT security-related activities within the Defence Single Information Environment and influence the broader ICT environment", and “controlling, shaping and influencing ICT security management systems and resources within CIOG and across Defence”.
