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 the number one technical actor in cybersecurity in Sweden and now we’re looking to claim that spot in cyberlaw as well. Through our position in the market, we can ensure that you’ll have the opportunity to work in the melting pot of cyberlaw, digging deep into advanced data and privacy incidents on both a regional and international level. As a member of our Legal Team, you’ll work with a wide variety of tasks:
Group Strategic Partner: We engage with and support the group Management Team in matters regarding company law, risk, compliance, and procurement of external legal services.
Legal Incident Response Team (LIRT): Together with Truesec’s market-leading Cybersecurity Incident Response Team (CSIRT), or as a standalone service, we provide legal advisory services to incident response clients in need of expeditious expert guidance on matters related to data privacy, personal data breaches, the GDPR, and coordination of local counsel on a global scale. Working together, the CSIRT and the LIRT form a unique and complete package for national and international clients who may have, for example, suffered a ransomware attack.
Traditional Company Counsels: We support the group and its domains with an internal focus on business law (including commercial contract negotiations and business development), as well as a general supporting function (including employment law and insurance dealings).
The demand for our services is profound, and through our continued expansion into Europe, you will get to be a part of building what Truesec’s legal offering is now, as well as what it shall be in the future. You’ll be a part of building a new offering in the legal market and defining how legal services in cyberlaw can and should look. By doing this, you will also create both customer value and do good for society as a whole.
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.
• A strong ambition and desire to be part of something bigger.
Due to the sensitivity in our assignments, we require Swedish citizenship, citizenship in an EU country, or a Swedish work permit.
