Role: Operational Risk Analyst- Cyber / Tech / InfoSec Specialty Coverage

Location: Baltimore, MD

Firm Risk Management

Firm Risk Management (FRM) supports Morgan Stanley to achieve its business goals by partnering with business units across the Firm to realize efficient risk-adjusted returns, acting as a strategic advisor to the Board and protecting the Firm from exposure to losses as a result of credit, market, liquidity, operational, model and other risks.

Background on the Position

The role will reside within the Firm Risk Management's Operational Risk Department focusing on Cybersecurity, Technology, and Information Security Risk.

Operational Risk refers to the risk of financial or other loss, or potential damage to a firm's reputation, resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people, systems, or from external events (e.g., fraud, legal and compliance risks or damage to physical assets). Management works with the business units and control groups to help ensure Morgan Stanley has a transparent, consistent, and comprehensive program for managing operational risk, both within each area and across the firm globally. This group designs, implements and monitors the company-wide operational risk program.

Cybersecurity, Technology, and Information Security Risk is the practice of identifying, assessing, and helping to identify cyber threats and remediate risks related to the confidentiality, availability and integrity of the Firm's systems and information, including associated processes and controls. The successful candidate will be responsible for helping execute independent oversight, analysis, and monitoring of risks and controls.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Understand the Firm's technology systems, security controls, business processes, and the teams who directly support them. This role will not be responsible for configuring, deploying, or maintaining technology systems directly but requires willingness and ability to learn about how those systems are designed, built, protected, and secured throughout their lifecycle.
  • Work collaboratively with other analysts to support different functions of the team in close partnership with colleagues at all levels. Provide back-up support to other team members as required.
  • Team members are expected to handle flexible responsibilities; the role of an Analyst will include preparing regular risk reporting, conducting granular analysis or research into risks, and preparing (and often presenting) materials to facilitate risk management decisions by senior managers.


Experience Required

  • Bachelor's degree in information technology, computer science, cybersecurity, data science, finance, economics, business, or related fields.
  • Intellectual curiosity about risk management or the finance industry.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills. Ability to analyze and draw conclusions from large datasets.
  • Comfortable and able to work on multiple projects at the same time.
  • Capable of quickly learning new skills, concepts, tools, and methodologies.
  • Strong interpersonal skills to successfully work in a team-oriented environment.
  • Strong communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Proficient in MS Office Suite (e.g., Word, Excel, PowerPoint).

FRM is committed to creating and providing opportunities that enable our workforce to reflect diverse backgrounds and views.
