Specifically, activities & responsibilities will include;
* Pushing the data resiliency agenda across the organisation.
* You'll look at how data flows from source to destination across the technology landscape and what can be done to ensure there is no data loss, data corruption, ransomware/malware attacks and the data can be recovered within the impact tolerance of Important Business Services.
* You'll support the establishment of controls and assessment frameworks that identify data vulnerabilities across a complex data and technical landscape (e.g. premise, 3rd party, middleware, databases, 3rd party applications, messaging queues, data feeds, data connections, APIs, batches and cloud environments.
* You'll support the embedding of data assessments engaging a large and diverse stakeholder group including target operating model design, data resilience MI design, data resilience RCSA design, changes to operational resilience, data security, technology and data policies to embed the standards governing data resilience
* You'll analyse outcomes of data resilience annual assessments and identify vulnerabilities from a data perspective across the availability, integrity and security of data.
* You'll support the creation of data lineage using Ins-Pi and ServiceNow outlining the applications required for each step of the journey, upstream and downstream applications, how data moves in transit or is held at rest across the technology landscape

* Strong experience in Disaster Recovery, backup and restore, cyber threats and monitoring, and data encryption domains will be desirable
* This is not a Data Governance or data quality management chapter within CDAO- we need resources having relevant experience in improving data and technology resilience
