This includes incident triage, threat-actor journey mapping, containment, remediation, and identification of root cause contributors.

In addition to leading and growing the Canadian team of incident response experts, you represent the team externally within Canadian industry groups.

You regularly connect with your peers and leadership in Fraud Threat Management to ensure optimization across functions.

You’re calm under pressure and draw on your years of experience and knowledge of industry best practice to inspire confidence with your team and stakeholders inside and beyond the Bank as you keep our customers and the Bank safe.

Your team maintains a methodology and systematic solutions to managing critical fraud incidents and cyber-fraud attacks across Canada and, where necessary, provide support to some of the largest international incidents.

Is this role right for you? In this role you will :

  • Lead the response to account-level attacks targeting any of Scotiabank’s products and digital properties in Canada. Regularly review and incorporate lessons learned.
  • Produce and provide timely incident communications for a variety of audiences including senior stakeholders to ensure awareness and appropriate levels of engagement as part of response activities.

Provide guidance and recommendations to your leadership, peers, and stakeholders across the enterprise to support effective decision-making during incident response, post-incident, and prevention phases.

Create conditions that encourage the identification of systemic issues, reoccurring problems, and identified threats / vulnerabilities to our Fraud Problem Management function.

Ensure these and other root cause contributors are captured within post-incident reviews.

  • Act as a SME resource to our Fraud Problem Management team to support appropriate and effective resolutions for identified problems.
  • Manage and drive improvement for incident management KPIs including mean-time-to-detect (MTTD), mean-time-to-containment (MTTC), mean-time-to-remediation (MTTR) as measured by event type and severity.
  • Identify and recommend changes to cyber-fraud monitoring and alerts that your team receives to ensure ongoing improvements to our early-detection efforts.

Maintain awareness of legislative and regulatory changes that affect cyber-fraud incident management in Canada. Prepare briefing notes, reports, and other content associated with regulator interactions.

Conduct work item quality reviews and provide required coaching to ensure adherence to our incident protocol, incident communication matrix, service-level commitments, and all associated playbooks.

Regularly recognize and reinforce high-quality work and behaviours individually and in a team setting where appropriate.

Support the development of and maintain comprehensive incident management playbooks outlining processes, tools, data, and technology requirements, as well as communications protocols and cross-functional interaction models with key internal partners (ex.

IS&C, Crisis Management, Corporate Security, and technology).

Contribute to and execute against the cyber-fraud team roadmap that ensures the team is equipped with the expertise, procedures, data, technology, and relationships they need to be successful in preventing, early detection, and response to account-level attacks.

Do you have the skills that will enable you to succeed in this role? We’d love to work with you if you have :

  • 5+ years working in a leadership capacity within cyber-fraud or security incident management.

What’s in it for you?
