We are a well-funded not-for-profit project tasked with building the open-source DHIS2 platform, the world’s most widely-deployed health information system. The project is based at the Health Information Systems Programme (HISP) at the University of Oslo (UiO) where we operate as an independent software development organization.
With us you get a chance to work on problems which really matter: Improving the health and well-being of people around the world through access and use of information. Our platform is used in more than 90 countries worldwide and has the scale and adoption which will allow you to make an impact globally.
We give you a lot of flexibility and freedom and there is no micro-management or strict hierarchies. At DHIS2 we believe you will do your best work if you fully understand the context in which the system operates. As a result you are encouraged to engage directly with our projects, take part in the design process and get feedback from users in the field.
DHIS2 is hiring a Senior Security Manager for our global team. This is a full-time position with the option to work remotely or from Oslo, Norway
About This Role
As security manager, you will be responsible for defining and implementing security policies for DHIS2. As a senior member of the core team you will help to guide the development of a secure software platform as well as to promote and proliferate strong privacy and security practices to the global community of software users and implementers.
An important part of the security manager’s responsibilities will be to lead our support to implementing partners, primarily ministries of health in Africa and Asia. Development of guidelines and participation at DHIS2 academies and missions to countries will be essential in our effort to help countries build robust and secure health information systems. With the increasing adaptation of the DHIS2 for case-based data, the security manager will help countries build national structures and policies to protect not only the software system as a whole but also the sensitive data collected and processed by that system.
