Wat doe je als Information Security Advisor (1 FTE, Arnhem) bij TenneT?

As the Information Security Officer, you report functional to the Lead Information Security Officer and in the line to the manager of the Information Management Office department.

Your primary focus will be on:

  • Interpreting and where needed documenting security policy at departmental level;
  • Translating policy into actionable information protection requirements
  • Managing security assurance over internal and external service providers;
  • Managing security awareness and training; and
  • Managing security related communication and documentation.

For some of these topics you will play the leading role, defining and continually improving the way in which the activity is carried out, defining and planning what will be done in coming year, ensuring that those plans bare the intended fruits, and reporting over the progress made.

You will work in close coordination with the other members of the tactical team and act as backup for them as and where needed. This means that you will become well versed in all aspects of tactical information security management.

Execution of tactical security management involves a great deal of interaction with security managers and security subject matter experts at operational level. It also involves interaction process management and service managers and with the management to which they report. As such, you will play a vital link between the tactical team and the operational security organization.

While primary responsibility for coordination with other parts of TenneT lies with the LISO, you will also coordinate directly with your counterparts in other parts of the TenneT organization in relation to the subjects that you lead.
