      Thank you for your request. I reached out to our executive advisors, and they responded that although we don’t have that specific job description, the Information Curator or Chief Information Security Officer job descriptions may be a place to start.
      If you’d like to send your completed job description to your account manager, we can have one of our analysts review it for you.
