Iress is one of Australia’s largest technology companies and employs more than 1,900 people across Australia, United Kingdom, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand and Asia.

The role

As a Privacy Analyst, you will work closely with a variety of teams across our global business, supporting and guiding them through certain business changes, new processes or the onboarding of a new supplier which could impact or affect personal data. You'll be working hand in hand with both our Legal and InfoSec teams to ensure records and processes are maintained to protect data integrity within Iress.

What you will be doing

  • Coordinating regular reviews of the global Information Asset Register (IAR), and providing guidance and support to the business in completing this, as well as monitoring any changes to the register and challenging where appropriate
  • Maintaining records of processing, global Authorised Processor Lists and other documents on the privacy area of the website
  • Working with the business to complete privacy impact assessments, maintaining a repository for these assessments and responsibility for ensuring all mitigating actions are completed
  • Creating and delivering appropriate training on privacy related processes - e.g. DPIA, breach reporting, IAR completion to teams across the business
  • Assisting your colleagues with responding to privacy related questions in client assurance questionnaires and RFP’s, walking them through the process and clearly answering any questions they may have

What you will need

  • Comfortable working independently and effectively managing workload, you will be pro-active and take a commercial approach to providing practical solutions
  • You will be someone who is naturally eager to learn and will need to be willing to develop a sound understanding of Iress' solutions, services, operations and infrastructure
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal, are key to the success of this role. You will be confident building relationships with a variety of stakeholders across the business, acting as the primary support and SME for all things privacy and personal data related.
