Information Security Specialist

We are seeking a resourceful and passionate Information Security Specialist to join ActivityInfo’s information security team and help us protect the data entrusted to our platform.

ActivityInfo is a comprehensive platform for data collection, storage, and analysis, primarily in humanitarian aid contexts. The platform is used by the UN, governments, and NGOs of all sizes in 50+ countries.

ActivityInfo is a complex web application that is highly customizable and offers users the ability to define highly granular permissions to ensure that their data is accessible to only the right people.

You would share the following responsibilities with the rest of the information security team:

  • Regularly review and update our threat matrix to ensure we have appropriate risk mitigation measures in place
  • Regularly test disaster recovery plans
  • Participate in the new feature design to ensure that security is properly taken into account.
  • Conduct employee and customer training on information security best practices
  • Conduct penetration testing on our web application and infrastructure
  • Coordinate with IT security specialists within our customer organizations to identify specific threats and mitigations for their data
  • Review, revise, and enforce information security policies within our team
  • Support our ISO 27001 certification process

We have made the strategic decision to rely on Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings to run our product, so our information security focus is on Web Application Security. Experience with the Google Cloud Platform would be a plus.

We will favor candidates who can join us 2-3 days a week in our office in the Hague, but remote candidates with the right profile will be considered. This position will be between 30-40 hours per week, depending on the preferences of the successful candidate.
