In general, the primary responsibility of a security advisor is to engage with every active project team, advise the team on SDL compliance for each and every security practice, ensure cybersecurity requirements are included in each project, and help teams comply with company Marketing requirements and Technical Invariants.

In some cases, security advisors will also have enough skill and experience to guide teams on security functional solutions (architecture, implantation, testing). Where the security advisor may not have the project's needed skills, the advisor will help the team connect with appropriate resources.

The security advisor stays engaged with every project team through OTM/RDI and implementation phases, ensuring that the agreed security plan is adhered to and escalating when not.

At the end of each project the advisor assesses the project teams security plan compliance and produces a final security report. No project advances unless the FSR is completed and accepted by Leadership.
