Describe your role as Group Information Security Manager
My task as Group Information Security Manager involves shouldering responsibility for PostNord Stralfors’ information security at all levels. Nothing unforeseen must happen for our customers. I create the framework, i.e our strategy for security work, but I also work operationally at the detailed level if required. All of our work is based on our customers’ requirements. For example, if a customer wants specific checks to be implemented, we make sure that our systems and processes handle it.
