The Role
As the Information Systems Security Manager, you will work with a dedicated and motivated team to ensure the information security posture of multiple military units is maintained. Using dedicated systems, processes and procedures, you will be responsible for the information security of some of Australia’s most advanced aircraft in the Royal Australian Air Force inventory.

Should your performance fall beyond requirements or the eligibility criteria not be met, your eligibility for the BDCP may be reviewed and ceased. It may also be ceased should you change positions or the requirement for the BDCP is no longer necessary, as determined by Defence. Should the BDCP be ceased you will be advised and your BDCP additional payment will cease.
