With each other
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Our Continuity & IT Risk team brings talented people together to challenge, monitor and evaluate our cybersecurity risks. With you as a Cyber Security Risk Manager, the team will consist of 16-20 diverse colleagues in a variety of roles, including:


Hugo van Kooten, IT Risk Manager: “If you like cybersecurity and want to contribute to a more secure Rabobank, this is the right time to apply. Given our size, the way we are organized (also internationally) and the fact that our IT-landscape is more and more connected to e.g. cloud or mobile applications, our work is often challenging, but therefore also exciting. This because together with colleagues I contribute to a Rabobank that’s more in control of its cybersecurity risks.


Max Merten, IT Risk Manager: “The Rabobank is continuously on the move. Within the department of Continuity & IT Risk we work with a very talented group on a quickly developing set of IT Risk domains, among which cybersecurity. As risk manager you get to work on a very exciting but challenging set of emerging security topics. Personally, I really enjoy the work atmosphere within the department and the degree of freedom one gets to perform our activities.”


With you

The Continuity & IT Risk department is responsible for managing risks (like Security, Outsourcing/Cloud, BCM and IT Risk) within Rabobank and specifically in the IT and operations departments. Collaboration is key, both with other departments, as with other colleagues from Compliance, Legal and Risk. Agile/scrum is our way of working, we continuously improve, learn and stimulate each other’s professional development. By combining our strengths across different departments, we bring the most added value for the bank. In addition, it's important that you recognize everything in the checklist below:
