The Bank for International Settlements is seeking an expert in cyber-resilience and protection to join its information security team.

We are an international organisation promoting global monetary and financial stability, and a bank for central banks. You will support our mission by strengthening information security in the areas of data protection, vulnerability management, risk management and security architecture.

In this role, you will review existing systems and controls to identify weaknesses and put forward controls and remediations. You will exercise sound judgment in evaluating risk and proposing reasonable measures within the Bank’s risk appetite. You will also work on projects to embed security engineering into IT infrastructure projects as well as advise on topics such as cloud security, devops and container security.

We look forward to meeting candidates with at least five years of experience in information security operations, including broad exposure to security engineering-related concepts. Additional certifications such as SABSA, CISSP, SANS GIAC/GSEC, GPEN, GWAPT, CEH and CISA would be a plus. You will also have a good understanding of system hardening, integrity monitoring, data loss prevention, and identity and access management.

We offer a unique, highly rewarding, international work environment giving you exposure to a range of state-of-the-art technologies. You will have the opportunity to interact with other security experts both within the central bank community and beyond.
We offer a competitive compensation package, including full relocation and health insurance. And because of our status as an international organisation, we are able to hire globally and welcome applications from candidates of all nationalities.


The BIS’s head office is located in Basel, Switzerland, with representative offices in Hong Kong SAR and Mexico City. We are able to recruit globally, regardless of nationality. All new staff members are recruited on a fixed-term basis without expectation either of any contract renewal or conversion. The contract may however be extended or converted to an open-ended one at the end of the term, subject to organisational needs and individual performance. The BIS is fully committed to equal opportunity employment and strives for diversity among its staff.
