De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek N.V. is looking for an Information Security Specialist.

As an international law firm, information is our most crucial asset. As an Information Security Specialist at De Brauw, you will play a key role in protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of this important asset. As a significant part of our firm’s IT security framework, you will work closely with, and report to, our Compliance & Information Security Officer.

What is the Job?
We secure and maintain a professional environment where confidentiality and continuity are critical. Our clients – large corporate firms, in particular – reasonably expect that a high level of security is continuously in place. As an Information Security Specialist, you will be on top of the latest risk, mitigation and security solutions to enable you to set priorities and make judgements on information risks. As a knowledgeable business and IT advisor, you will provide security analysis to IT to ensure that security requirements are incorporated by design. You will then implement the IT security within projects, lead stakeholder management activities with IT suppliers by steering peers and colleagues in the right direction of IT security, and support our Compliance & Information Security Officer.

Who are you?
You are as an Information Security Specialist able to combine an operational security role with supporting IT and running projects.

You demonstrate knowledge and skill at an operational IT security level, and you will operate in close cooperation with the Compliance & Information Security Officer, who sets the information security strategy. You are constantly thinking of ways to continually improve the cycle of our information security, and you are energised from being in charge.

Your professional views and interests go beyond security, and include General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and regulations common in the legal field. You like the challenge of complex problems, and you speak to associated business risks and advise on security measures. You have solid communication skills, and you are a good team player.

We would like to meet a candidate who has a Bachelor Degree in IT (or its equivalent), has a CISSP certification, with at least 3-5 years’ experience as an ISO at an operational IT security level. Experience in an international corporate environment is preferred.
