Fully integrated in the BNP Paribas Group, BNP Paribas Corporate and Institutional Banking (CIB) is a leading provider of solutions to two client franchises: corporates and institutional, and operates across EMEA (Europe Middle East Africa), APAC (Asia Pacific) and the Americas.

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a strategic consideration for BNP Paribas. ICT risk is the chance or possibility of harm being caused to a business as a result of a loss of the confidentiality, integrity or availability of ICT assets. ICT risk management is the optimization of the information asset/control relationship in the context of a cost/benefit analysis and in alignment with the organization's overall risk appetite. Second line Risk Managers are responsible for the aggregate entity and group-wide ICT risks, and are granted independent authority to effectively test and challenge the first line's approach to ICT Risks.
Responsibilities: The ICT/Technology Risk Manager within the BNP Paribas RISK ORC ICT Organization is responsible for managing the day-to-day execution of the ICT Risk Management function (2LOD) and to provide independent oversight and guidance across both direct and indirect areas of responsibility for the CIB Americas set of operating entities. The day-to-day focus may vary depending on the requirements of the overall program across CIB Americas and may include: independent testing, review of ICT projects, risk assessment, risk reporting, check and challenge, development of new tools and methodologies, etc. Key responsibilities include:
Undertake transversal and vertical assessments of risk exposures, identifying ICT risks, evaluating their potential business impact and reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of existing controls;
Analyze risk data from various sources (e.g. external events, control deficiencies, risk register) to identify and measure levels of risk, concentration, trends and patterns;
Work with 1LOD and 2LOD to recommend strategies that effectively treat the risks within the risk appetite (e.g. controls improvement to mitigate an ICT risk);
Perform check and challenge of 1LOD risk processes, data and outcomes (e.g. risk assessments, control evaluations, risk metrics, mitigation plans, risk acceptances, etc.), communicate risk opinions at various levels of management;
Once new/modified controls are in place, continue to monitor control effectiveness and the risk & control environment to determine whether incremental improvements are required to ensure that risk exposures are within acceptable limits;
Ensure adherence to ICT risk management standards and procedures, including and not limited to:
Developing and issuing ICT risk management reports and risk opinions
Maintaining working papers to substantiate and ensure objective basis for the risk opinions;
Establish administrative procedures to verify adherence to standards and procedures; and
