In today’s corporate landscape, cyber risk poses an increasingly sophisticated threat. Bloomberg’s clients and prospects are concerned about the potential for their private data to be exposed, and they’re apprehensive of possible disruptions to their key operations. The Business and Client Risk Engagement team brings transparency to Bloomberg's risk management and cyber security practices, to gain and keep client trust so they renew and expand their use of Bloomberg’s offerings.

On our team you'll focus on developing and facilitating client communications around our Risk and Security practices. You’ll develop relationships with risk professionals at our biggest clients, as an adjunct part of the sales and support groups that keep our business growing.

  • Respond to a high volume of client requests for detailed accurate answers about our security practices and controls through written documentation, phone and in-person meetings
  • Research, write, and gain appropriate approvals for improving our response library
  • Generate creative ideas while working both independently and collaboratively as part of a team
  • Liaise across business lines to influence strategies to improve Bloomberg’s risk controls, based on client findings

  • Familiarity with or demonstrated knowledge of industry standards and frameworks, including: NIST 800-53, ISO 27000 series, ITIL, COBIT, or COSO
  • Familiarity with or demonstrated knowledge of third party risk management life cycles in the financial services or related industries
  • Ability to understand requirements articulated in Requests for Proposals (RFP), Request for Information (RFI) and Due Diligence Questionnaires (DDQ) and leverage existing documentation to respond appropriately
  • Strong knowledge of information security, technology and associated risks, including an understanding of existing and upcoming regulations and the potential impact on the company and its clients
