Juriaan joins Simacan as Security & Privacy Officer

Hi Juriaan, welcome to Simacan! What will your job be at Simacan, what will it entail and what are you looking forward to most?
As Security & Privacy Officer, I take a critical look at the services we offer our clients. Simacan is well on its way, as demonstrated by our ISO27001 certification, among other things. At the same time, it is important that we continue to improve ourselves and comply with the legislation. I also try to keep our own employees aware of the different facets of information security in their daily work. 
 
Where did work-life begin for you?
Because of my interest in logistics, I specialized myself in transport law during my law studies. At the time, the subject of privacy was also becoming increasingly topical due to the then-upcoming GDPR. Thankfully these topics, privacy and transport law could be combined in my studies. After I finished, I worked as a Privacy Officer for a number of years. Now, it feels very good to work as a Security & Privacy Officer within an organization with a logistical slant. All my interests and background are combined within this job at Simacan.
 
You started with us at a crazy time, but nevertheless, I hope you had a good start? How was your first impression of Simacan?
I like it very much! Simacan is an open organization with many enthusiastic and approachable colleagues. I’m becoming more and more acquainted with the Simacan platform and I automatically become more and more enthusiastic about it as well. Simacan delivers great solutions for logistics processes.
 
Would you like to tell us something personal, non-work related, about yourself? 
I am 25 years old and live in Amersfoort. In my spare time, I like to meet up with friends for a beer. I also like to travel, go out into nature and do sports. I haven't been able to go abroad for a while, but I'm discovering more and more that the Netherlands has a lot to offer too!
