ANALYSIS
Assessing and editing InfoSec related contracts to ensure they align with our standard policies and procedures is a critical component of this role to reduce the risk of breach of contract and ensure CHC is not overcommitting to customers or taking on too much risk with vendors. There is more art than science in executing this even though we do have some high level guidelines in a documented run book for the role to follow.
