Our client is a globally operating company in the consultancy sector. Due to continuous growth they are now looking for a senior lawyer with cybersecurity experience. The role can be based in Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt or Madrid. Exceptional candidates based in other locations can be considered.

Reporting directly into the Head of the team based in the US you will be the first lawyer on the ground in Europe. You will be a subject matter expert for members of the legal department, information security, IT, cyber, data, and risk communities on topics related to cybersecurity. You will be leading the legal response to incidents and investigations as a core member of the incident response team. Furthermore, you will also be responsible for developing global strategies, processes, and controls to mitigate security risk, enhance resilience, and enable impact in a challenging and rapidly evolving regulatory environment and threat landscape.

You will be an excellent lawyer with experience in a top international law firm, government agency and/or multinational corporation, including experience with cybersecurity matters. You will need experience handling incident response, including working with third parties such as forensics investigative firms, external counsel, and law enforcement authorities, and supporting regulatory investigations and litigation related to cyber incidents. You are a strong self-starter and excellent communicator. You will have very good business acumen and feel confident in navigating different cultures and legal regimes.
