Insights from HM:

What is the business need for opening this role? If you’ve hired for this position before, how has the role/team/scope of responsibilities changed since then?

OneSpan needs to focus on delivering products without vulnerabilities and needs to be able to react to new vulnerabilities in a fast and efficient way. Over time the number of vulnerabilities must decrease and the time-to-patch (time between reporting of a vulnerability and the moment it is fixed/patched) must be reduced.

What are the high-level objectives for this person?

We need an application security specialist who knows how our products are build and operate. The hire needs to follow-up on reported vulnerabilities in the products (by scanning tools and by customers) and pro-actively search for vulnerabilities in the products. The hire needs to work with R&D to ensure we have full code scan coverage.

What are the first 90 day goals for this person?

Understand how one of the products (probably OneSpan Sign) is developed and build and how it works. Be able to analyze the SAST/DAST/SCA scan reports of OSS. Be able to determine the actual severity of discovered vulnerabilities and know how to report vulnerabilities to R&D.

What goals need to be achieved a year from now for you to determine the hire is successful?

 Understand and know how our SaaS products work
 Be able to create a release approval report used in GO/NO GO meeting.
 Prepare, manage and follow-up the annual penetration tests for our online services.
