Information Security Officer

Job description

Climate for growth

It is Priva's mission to create an optimal environment where people can work, grow and develop. We offer global solutions for horticulture and building automation.


Our ambition is to be known as the leading technology and service provider for sustainable urban deltas. We are proud that our solutions result in lower consumption of natural resources and contribute to several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


To fulfill our mission and ambition, we are looking for dedicated colleagues.


Your future ecosystem
Between Rotterdam and The Hague, you find the greenhouse capital of the world: “Het Westland”, where our campus is located in The Lier. A region that has a great contribution to The Netherlands as food exporter number 2 worldwide, right after the US.


In these 100 square kilometers, Priva was founded in the fifties. An innovative second-generation owned family business. Today we are a high-tech company that develops hardware, software and digital services in the field of climate control, energy-saving and optimal reuse of water. We do this for horticulture, indoor and city farming, as well as utility buildings such as offices, retail, hotels and hospitals.


We are proud that we are working with 500 colleagues, in 15 international branch offices divided over 12 countries together with over 400 international installation partners to deliver our sustainable solutions and services in more than 100 countries.

You will be part of our Information Security team, which consists of a Team Lead, IT Security Engineer and an Information Security Officer, the role that we are looking for. The Information Security Officer role is currently filled in by an external contractor. This is a relatively new team, and therefore this team might grow further later. This team focuses on the organization’s information security posture as well as the external security assurance for products and services. You will report to the Team Lead. Also, you decide where you work. For this role, 4 days from home and 1 day from our office, and everything in between, is no problem. 


How you add value

As Information Security Officer, you will have a challenging role in a dynamic environment. Together with your team, it is your job to make sure that Priva remains secure and futureproof. In your role, you do this by (proactively) signaling risks, giving advice and support on security matters within Priva, contributing to internal policies, performing (or organizing) security assessments, maintaining our IMS, and managing or taking part in external security assurance projects. In this role, you will
 also perform internal audits so we can retain this certification in the future. Of course, there is also room to keep your knowledge up to date and work on your personal development, by participating in events and obtaining security certifications.
