  • Liaise with external auditors and internal partners to facilitate audit procedures and evidence gathering
  • Support third party oversight processes, including security and compliance assessments of Fastly's vendors and service providers

What We're Looking For
  • You have 5-7 years of security or compliance analysis, or assurance/advisory experience, including a focus on customer security communications and leading programs as an individual contributor
  • You have a thorough understanding of technical environments, and the ability to communicate with subject matter experts about technical and operational security controls

  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills to communicate details of a security program to a wide spectrum of audiences, including customers
  • You have strong analytical skills and attention to detail
  • You have the ability to be self-directed and take initiative on projects and tasks, and in identifying gaps related to security controls, with minimal day-to-day oversight/direction
