The Opportunity

As a Compliance Consultant on the Data Governance, Security and Privacy Compliance team, you will develop and implement broad, integrated compliance strategies relating to data governance, cybersecurity, and privacy compliance. You’ll act as a liaison to other Compliance & Ethics Department teams, control functions and business partners regarding data governance, security, and privacy compliance activities, and will be part of a team of compliance professionals responsible for managing the compliance programs associated with data governance, cybersecurity and privacy.

The Team

The team is organized according to the risks it monitors (anti-money laundering and economic sanctions; data governance, security and privacy; anti-corruption; elder financial exploitation and fraud), but integrating these various functions within the same team enables the Financial Crimes & Fraud Prevention Compliance team to effectively manage financial crime, fraud and privacy compliance risk across the organization. This is accomplished by greater and consistent coordination and communications with business lines and other control functions, development of an overall financial crimes and fraud risk assessment and risk appetite, data sharing and analytics across financial crimes, fraud and data privacy/security prevention activities and efficient work flow and case management activities.
