Job Description

You Lead the Way. We’ve Got Your Back.


At American Express, we know that with the right backing, people and businesses have the power to progress in incredible ways.  Whether we’re supporting our customers’ financial confidence to move ahead, taking commerce to new heights, or encouraging people to explore the world, our colleagues are constantly redefining what’s possible - and we’re proud to back each other every step of the way. When you join #TeamAmex, you become part of a diverse community of over 60,000 colleagues, all with a common goal to deliver an exceptional customer experience every day.


It’s more than protecting systems and data.

It’s protecting people.

Our Information Security Managers know that security is a top priority for our business and our partners and customers. Today, as cyber-attacks increase and compliance is more rigorously enforced, we look to them to stay ahead of what’s next and to protect our business and our future.  So if you are dedicated to the latest technology and motivating others, secure your career here.


You won’t just see the problem coming, you’ll see the solution.


New threats to our business, our partners and customers appear on the horizon every day, so no two days are the same. But there are some things you can count on doing: 

  • Providing guidance on information security processes, controls, and compliance, and information security risk management to team members
  • Encouraging employee contribution, such as feedback, career development planning, and goal setting.
  • Developing plans and strategies for information security tools, processes, and programs
  • Responding to changes in the regulatory environment and assisting other organizations in doing the same.
  • Making strategic recommendations to enhance information security, including processes, procedures, governance approaches, and compliance.


    Employment eligibility to work with American Express in the U.S. is required as the company will not pursue visa sponsorship for these positions.
