Raymond James Analyst, IT GRC (Third Party Risk) in St. Petersburg, Florida


Raymond James Financial works with thousands of outside parties, from enterprise-level technology providers, to startup SaaS applications, law firms, and worldwide professional services organizations. Information Security is looking for a highly motivated Governance, Risk, and Compliance Analyst to help maintain Raymond James’ high security standards whenever and wherever we share data outside the company, provide access to our network, or offload business or technology functionality.

This role is responsible for performing security due diligence risk assessments, tracking security remediation projects, and maintaining compliance requirements for Raymond James’ third party relationships.
