IT & Digital Security Specialist
|Closing date||30 Sep 2021|
|Location||Remote - UK-based|
To provide IT & digital security specialist support to human rights and environmental defender organisations to review and improve IT & digital security management, with both in-field and remote working requirements (including in high-risk territories).
What Kamara Are Looking For
Kamara are currently expanding our team and are looking for someone that has the capability to deliver the IT & digital security components of Kamara’s risk management programmes and research/investigation projects.
The role provides direct support to organisations ranging from decentralised grassroots community groups to institutionalised NGOs with a global presence, supporting with risk mitigation ranging from non-targeted financially-motivated attackers to APT groups utilising home-grown and off-the-shelf toolkits such as Pegasus. This includes auditing, participatory prioritisation, culturally-aware end user and admin education, incident triage (and occasionally response), and project management of the implementation of various mitigation measures.
Beyond direct support, the aim is to build capacity within the organisation, with accessible guidance, devising and delivering workshops (both virtual and in-person), and ongoing management support. Our model is to work with organisations over a longer period of time rather than a one-off training and candidates should be committed to tailoring their approach around concepts that aim to build capacity at local level within the individuals, communities or organisations we work with in order for support solutions to be sustainable.
We believe a well-rounded and balanced team is made up of diverse people that bring different perspectives and experiences to contribute.
Responsibilities & Tasks:
It is essential that candidates have:
The candidate must also have at least one of the following preferred experiences:
An initial 1 year fixed-term consultancy (subject to standard probation and termination provisions) with the potential to evolve into a full-time permanent position. We work remotely but meet regularly in London. Remuneration will be commensurate to level of experience.
