Information Security Officer (m/w/d)

Remote, Hybrid
  • Leipzig, Sachsen, Germany

Job description

We are looking for you as an Information Security Officer! Would you like to secure our customers' digital journey in the future?

Your mission

As Information Security Officer you ensure your clients constant and regular security management. You support them in identifying the greatest threats to information security and create a security management plan to minimize these risks. Consequently, you initiate the holistic implementation of corresponding measures. 

Of course, you don't do this alone. Your colleagues from the Security & Privacy Office will work around the clock to answer your questions, follow up on incidents and implement actions and measures resulting from the security management plan. Your focus is on supporting your customers on a strategic and tactical level so that they can concentrate on what really matters: their core business.

You will report directly to the General Manger DACH and work closely with the Northwave Business, Bytes & Behaviour teams in the Netherlands. The team in Germany is still being built up, so you can actively contribute to our success in the DACH region.

Was Dich Bei Uns Erwartet


First things first: you will receive a permanent employment contract with 30 days' holiday per year. You can organise your own working hours in consultation with your colleagues and customers.


What do you want to achieve and what support do you need? You will receive regular training and support in achieving your professional goals. You can also develop further within Northwave.


It is important to us to respect and value each other - as professionals and as people. The best way to get to know your 230+ colleagues from the Netherlands and Germany is to take part in one of our many activities, such as our annual trip to the theme park.


You will be equipped with a modern MacBook and iPhone. We have height-adjustable desks in our offices and our CEO loves to set us up with merchandise ;-)


In order to be mobile at all times, you will receive either a company car or a BahnCard 100 (also for private use).

What else...

No, the fruit basket in the office is not a benefit for us, but a matter of course - just like coffee, tea and lemonade. Have you ever tried Dutch caramel waffles?

Job requirements

The most important thing for us is that you fit into the team and are keen to help shape and advance Northwave. Of course, we also have a few technical requirements for this position.


You have a relevant academic degree and ideally one of the following certifications: CISM / CISA / CISSP / CCSP / CIPP-E / CIPM (not a must, but a plus!)?

Knowledge and experience

You have several years of experience in a similar role and have knowledge of ISO 27001 in particular? Do you have relevant experience in the implementation and customization of management systems?

Other strengths

Can you empathize with clients' core business and incorporate this into your approach? Do you work independently, are you well structured and communicative? Do you speak very good German and good English?


I look forward to receiving your application.
