What are you going to do
Citizens, companies and employees can rest assured that information and (personal) data are in good hands with the municipality of Leeuwarden. Reliable information provision is necessary for the proper functioning of the municipality and forms the basis for protecting the rights of citizens and businesses. This requires an integrated approach, clear responsibilities, the right measures and risk awareness. Information security is becoming an increasingly important theme within and outside the municipality. The municipality of Leeuwarden has the ambition to structurally raise information security to a higher level and to keep it there through the aspects of governance, legislation and regulations, the organization of the security function and the information security policy. That is why we are looking for reinforcement in the form of an Information Security Officer (ISO) for 28-36 hours.

What are you going to do?
The ISO is responsible for the day-to-day management of information security activities within the municipality at the operational and tactical level. In the context of information security, the ISO provides a security plan and the associated standards and procedures. Together with the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), the Information Security Officer (ISO) plays an important role in drawing up and translating the information security policy into (technical) security measures.

What does your day look like?
You log in to our digital work environment from home. You view the security reports from the organization and advise on the correct approach. You also call your colleague ISO and discuss the assessment of new Cloud software. You look closely at how the supplier guarantees security and handles updates. Later that morning you have an online meeting with a project group. You discuss the security measures that a certain Cloud supplier still has to take before the environment can go live. In the afternoon you go to the office and prepare audits of new applications that the organization wants to use, taking appropriate security measures and managing the implementation. You are in close contact with the Privacy Officer to coordinate information security and privacy requirements and to implement them within the new applications.

You then join the tactical task group in which you and the Technical Information Security Officers (TISO) discuss current affairs regarding information security and make agreements about who will do what. At the end of the day, you call the external party who is preparing a Pentest to provide insight into any vulnerabilities in the camera system used by the Enforcement Department.

The work

Who are you

In addition:

  • Can you react situationally in the context of risk management and strategic flexibility;
  • Do you have excellent communication skills: you are able to convince and you can translate professional knowledge and associated risks for the business in understandable language;
