Under your guidance the team is able to grow professionally and personally, and you make sure that they are kept energized and focused.
In this role, you will be client facing frequently as our clients and prospects seek an experienced sparring partner to understand how FRISS can support their security & compliance requirements.
Depending on the growth of the team (currently 2 additional openings) you are also responsible for daily operations, for example signing off on questionnaires to executing and overseeing different frameworks (SOC2, ISO27001 and ISAE 3402).
- Manage & support the team, assuring that it is enabled and adequately equipped to meet our goals.

- Empower the leadership team and the rest of the organization to take ownership for the Security & Compliance responsibilities.
- Oversee the processes required for maintaining relevant security & compliance certifications & attestations (i.e. ISO27001, ISAE 3402).
- Ensure continuous improvement & governance of the ISMS.
- Organize and facilitate group consultations for steering and coordination in the field of information security.
What did you achieve after one year?
You have grown the team with 2 FTE. The team has a stable footing within the company by improving ownership of the Security & Compliance subjects within their daily & annual operations. FRISS has achieved the ISO27001 certification. Ideally you will have made a governance plan to integrate the processes of the two recent acquisitions into the ISMS.
You and your FRISS team
We offer the opportunity to work in a fast-changing and international environment, with lots of room for initiative and personal development. Our clients demand secure and modern solutions to support their needs and compliance requirements. You will collaborate closely with your teammates from the Security & Compliance team and with a wide variety of clients, data partners, and highly talented colleagues.
Who are you?
You must have an analytical and critical mindset which allows you to manage complex security & compliance challenges in a fast growing, internationally oriented company. You feel comfortable with giving advice where needed and can overcome resistance to ensure compliance with policies and guidelines, which are often perceived as obstructive in the execution of the work. You are experienced and comfortable in sparring with the management team and high-profile multi-national clients. You understand when discretion is required and can deal with confidential information.
The ideal candidate:
- Extensive management and CISO experience.
- Your work is characterized by integrity, proactiveness, quality-orientation, and teamwork.
- At least 5 to 7 years of relevant work experience in a relevant industry (such as finance, insurance, insurtech, or a data analytics firm).
