  • Awareness of network protocols
  • Preference is given to hands-on experience in security operations centre tools and engineering
  • An understanding of secure by design and DevSecOps principles is preferred

Within CISO, this department provides infrastructural, security-related services, such as a Security Operations Centre (SOC). They also devise cryptography solutions and security assurance for applications in other departments. The CISO/O&I/Change department consists of eight Agile teams. Each of these deliverIT solutions for a specific area of attention within O&I. Specialisms include Network Security, SIEM, Use Cases and CaaS (Cryptography-as-a-Service). Each team works in sprints and as a developer in such a team you and your colleagues are end-to-end responsible for the way in which you convert the requirements into an implemented end product. There is no separate test or release team. Each Agile team determines its own approach, whereby you plan and deliver a result every three weeks (Sprint) with as much value for the organisation as possible.
