This role is responsible for defining and integrating security into all aspects of product development and cloud adoption and operation. You will be responsible for evangelising, educating, designing and integrating security across products within a hybrid multi-cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP)  environment spanning traditional and agile product development practices. This role will establish a team of experts that interfaces across CSO, technology and product teams to define and integrate security into product teams and cloud enablement. 
This role will establish a central team of expert practitioners able to work across cloud and application security domains, with the objective of integrating security directly into existing pipelines and practices. Given the number and diversity of product teams, this team will depend heavily upon the fostering of security expertise within product teams (security champions) that this team will lead and organise.

Your role will be critical to ensure TELUS Health is able to safely adopt and exploit the opportunities provided by cloud services and agile product development.
