At Disney, we’re storytellers. We make the impossible, possible. The Walt Disney Company is a world-class entertainment and technological leader. Walt’s passion was to continuously envision new ways to move audiences around the world — a passion that remains our touchstone in an enterprise that stretches from theme parks, resorts and a cruise line to sports, news, movies and a variety of other businesses. Uniting each endeavor is a commitment to creating and delivering unforgettable experiences — and we’re constantly looking for new ways to enhance and protect these exciting experiences.

We protect the brand and reputation while enabling and supporting business objectives. GIS teams are located in Seattle, Burbank, and Orlando.

In order to ensure that our services keep TWDC secure, we follow an ongoing, iterative process, including continued reevaluation of our services over time to address emerging threats as well as changes in business and technology.

This process includes:

2. Creation, maintenance, governance and communication of security policies and standards across TWDC.
3. Assessment and audit of compliance against the security policies and standards.
4. Assurance that TWDC assets are effectively managed and monitored to meet TWDC security criteria.
We are looking to add people to our team who are focused on delivery, prioritize data-driven decisions over opinions, are continuous learners, passionate about information security, and love their work.

  • Partner with our Global Information Security (GIS) service providers/partners to define procedures for appropriately identifying and tagging all consumer identity-related gaps/issues identified by those teams.

  • Own entire gap remediation process end-to-end for each IdP ecosystem, including all CIS-identified gaps and any consumer identity-related gaps identified by partner teams in GIS. This includes leading meetings, reviewing any necessary documentation to validate remediation, and reporting on progress and risk for control findings, vulnerabilities, compliance gaps, etc.
