Dear Ms. Lau,
This letter is to express my interest in your posting on LinkedIn for a Senior Information Security Analyst. I have extensive experience handling varying security threats, regulating data access, and leading various security task forces at my previous employer's. I am confident I will be an asset to your organization for those very reasons.
With high profile data breaches making the news lately, it is vital companies can provide safety guarantees to customers. I take pride in knowing I can help plan and maintain those various security settings, both internally and externally. Through continuous education and research, I am up-to-date on industry trends and technologies and remain one step ahead of all cyber attacks. It is my focus to ensure company information remains safe and in the proper control.
Building a strong, focused, and dedicated team has helped me develop a successful career, thus far. I believe in professional development, leading by example, and that you are only as strong as your weakest link. I hope to help develop your existing team and be a positive role model for security compliance and identifying potential threats.
