Are you currently enrolled in a study and looking for a challenging internship in an international company located in the center of Amsterdam, with lots of growth potential? We are now looking for an Information Security Intern to join our team. This internship is for 3-6 months, and the start date is negotiable - we would love it if you joined us in September 2024, but you are also welcome to apply if you can start with us later on.

This is a remote position (within the Netherlands), where you will be working for our Amsterdam office. We are looking for a full-time employee (part-time can be discussed). We are a remote-friendly company, meaning you can work from your home at all times within the Netherlands. We also have an office located in the city center of Amsterdam with flexible desks.

What this internship looks like
As an Information Security Intern, you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of assignments that will help you develop a strong foundation in information security. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting in handling security incidents and coordinating the response in close cooperation with the Information Security Department.

  • Coordinating with stakeholders to identify areas for improvement in processes, procedures, and workflows.

  • Conducting and analyzing risk assessments to evaluate information systems, programs, and procedures.

  • Assisting in vulnerability management.

  • Performing disaster recovery, business continuity, and security incident testing.

  • Researching security standards and security systems.

  • Conducting security reviews of the setup and configuration of various external services.

  • Assisting in filling out third-party assessments.

  • Collaborating with the development squads to understand security issues or improvements in our products, following up on implementation, and verifying results.

  • Advising and informing colleagues on operating safely and securely.

  • Assisting in defining, updating, and implementing final versions of documents, including policies and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).


What you will bring to the team

  • Currently enrolled in a relevant degree program (e.g., Information Security, Cybersecurity, Computer Science, or a related field).

  • Strong interest in information security and eagerness to learn.

  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills.

  • Ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

  • Good communication and interpersonal skills.

  • Proficiency in English (both written and spoken).
