What your future Colleagues say:

What our colleagues from our Security Operations Center realize? Night’s rest! We monitor our

customers’ networks and systems 24x7x365 for them to be, and stay, safe. Our Engineers maintain

the platform and build new detections. The Security Operations Managers monitor services for and

with their clients and ensure that monitoring remains well aligned with the client’s risks. One of the

analysts says about his job: As an analyst, you really make an impact with your work. Together with the other analysts, we are at the 'front line'. Without the work we do, there would be no customers and no need for the systems. I am also indispensable to the customer and always try to think along as best I can. You notice that we are really making sure that we continuously professionalize our SOC and I am allowed to do my bit.
