Do you want to be at the forefront of protecting our society against cyber threats? We are looking for a Legal Counsel to team up with the most dedicated team of cyber specialists in our Legal domain.
About Truesec – A Leading Cybersecurity Company
Since 2005, Truesec has been a native cybersecurity company, driven by one single purpose: Creating safety and sustainability in a digital world by preventing cyber breach and minimizing impact.
Over the years, we’ve earned the trust of organizations worldwide and gained a strong reputation internationally. Our team consists of dedicated specialists covering the entire spectrum of cybersecurity – with capabilities in Predict, Prevent, Protect, Respond, and Recover.
Today, we employ around 200 employees – and as cybercrime grows, we need to grow. To support that goal, we are now looking for a Legal Counsel who wants to make a difference in our Legal Team.
Legal & Cyberlaw
Truesec is an expert cybersecurity organization and since 2021, we have expanded our business to include a legal function. Our legal team manages our company’s internal legal matters and also provides advisory services to our customers during assignments that cross country borders, continents, and even time zones. Together, we are defining what legal advisory services in cyberlaw look like now and in the future.
Truesec is number one in cybersecurity in Sweden – and now we’re looking to claim that spot in cyber law as well
As a member of Truesec Cyber Law, you’ll work with a wide variety of tasks – from supporting a premiere technical organization on its mission to create a safer digital future to supporting customers with cyber law and cybersecurity law. As a member of Truesec Cyber Law, you’ll be acting both as in-house counsel and provide legal services to the market, redefining both the traditional in-house counsel role and shape how legal services can and should be provided. As a member of Truesec Cyber Law, you’ll work in cross-competence teams together with some of the most experienced and talented lawyers, cybersecurity and information security experts, and incident responders.
Some examples of tasks and roles you’ll come across as a Cyber Law member are:
Group Strategic Partner: We engage with and advise the group Management Team on matters regarding corporate law, legal risks, and procurement of external legal services.
Cyber Law: We advise customers on all things related to cyber law and cybersecurity law, including preparing for personal data breaches, managing risks related to cyber law and cybersecurity law, and managing and responding to personal data breaches, including notifying authorities and coordinating global legal teams. Together with Truesec’s market-leading Cybersecurity Incident Response Team (CSIRT), or as a standalone service, we provide customers with a unique one-stop-shop for incident response services.
Traditional In-House Counsel: We support the group and its business domains with developing legal, compliance, privacy, and governance frameworks; managing legal risks and issues associated with a rapidly growing and internationalizing tech company; negotiating complex commercial agreements; etc. In the more traditional in-house role, you create the legal framework for an innovative and dynamic organization as well as translate legalese for both business people in management and technical experts working on the field, and the other way around.
Your Potential Background
As you might understand, this is a great opportunity for an individual who wants to be a part of a successful business and who also wants to be a part of defining the cyberlaw area. In other words, this is a unique opportunity for a unique individual who is self-acting and feels comfortable in most situations. We believe your background includes:
• University degree, Swedish LL.M. preferred (European law degree will be considered).
• Experience in business law, either from a law firm or in an in-house role.
• Experience in data privacy, commercial contract negotiations, dispute resolution, insurance claims adjustment/litigation, M&A, or similar – regardless of formal background, you should have a strong will to support both internal and external customers, an entrepreneurial drive to create innovative legal services, and an interest in technology and cyber.
• A strong ambition and desire to be part of something bigger.
Join Our Mission Toward a Safe Digital Future
