Our way of working

  • In your heart, you know there is a better way of doing things. Challenge the old dogmas of slow and tedious information security work with miles of documentation and do away with the tick-the-box philosophy of security.
  • You are also grounded and understand that security has to be explained, and that others need assurance that information is secure in the same way that  we require assurance from our partners and service providers.
  • You love to try a new approach, think big, but you can also focus on details. Starting out small, and quickly try out your idea because you really want to see the results now, not in years.
  • You enjoy working with and in teams, and work together to achieve a common goal.
  • You are experienced enough to own and drive tasks independently. You can interact with different competences and internal and external stakeholders in a professional way.
