Global Information Security Officer

Dept, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Cologne, Manchester, Berlin, Hamburg

The heart and mind of your digital business.

In Dept, we are looking for a Global Information Security Officer who will support our ambitions in growing and securing information at the same time. 

This vacancy is open for relocation to the Netherlands. Read all about our relocation process here.

Dept is constantly expanding in various countries and all the offices have an Information Security System in place based on their own jurisdiction. In order to leverage the cooperation between the offices to the full extent and comply with all relevant local legislation, integration of these various systems is key. In order to utilize their full potential, the individual offices should remain as independent as possible in their creative processes, and at the same time, Dept’s clients are demanding more and independent assurance on Information Security. That’s where you come in!

As a Global Information Security Officer you are responsible for the security and protection of Dept’s data, as well as advising our business teams how to protect the data of our clients. You are pragmatic, with a strong focus on structural improvement, and you define what is really important, what has priority, and act on the things that matter most in a growing environment. You are able to understand, further implement and maintain the current Information Security Management System, but also further expand and implement the scope of the ISMS in a way that is suitable for the organisation. You will be engaging closely with a team of experts from various countries, so you are a person that naturally connects with others and finds joy in building relationships and setting shared goals. 

You will work in a young environment with clever minds that work for a variety of world class clients. Yes, we are eager to bring on board the most talented experts in the game. But we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn and strives towards a better world, takes the stage, is a futurist at heart, and someone who is down to cheer with us to a successful week as well! We strongly support diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. Ultimately, we are looking for a unique individual who is able to strengthen our collective.
