You set and implement tactical information security- and privacy standards and procedures, setting clear guidance to assist management to comply with these requirements and manage the associated risks on an ongoing basis.

Together with the Manager Risk Management, you drive information security and privacy awareness by means of developing (online) trainings and a network of champions to assist with identification and management of information security and privacy risks.
