Job Description

The work

As a Cloud Security Consultant at Accenture SecurityNL, you will advise our clients on how to secure their Cloud/Hybrid environments from a holistic perspective. Holistic in the sense that security consists of more than just the technology, but always relies on people and processes for success in keeping our client’s valuable data secure. Typically, that would look as follows;

  • People You are the linking pin between the business, IT, and the security department and you make sure that security is supported and realized properly through each of these.

  • Processes Cloud migrations have impact on existing security processes or might require new ones. You are able to define and discuss the processes required for efficient and effective security operations.

  • Technology (Cloud) Security relies on technology such as vulnerability scanners, Infrastructure as Code, back-up services, firewalls, etc. etc. You must be able to understand these technologies and their purpose on a decent level. But please note that in this role, it is not expected of you to do hands-on cloud engineering (e.g., develop IaC) or security solution configuration (e.g., create Sentinel playbooks, configure Defender).

  • Data Client data is crucial for their business goals, the goals that we are trying to protect. You will drive security measures to protect this data especially in the landscape changing due to Cloud technology. Think of a simple transformation such as the move to online filesharing vs. device-bound storage.

With all our roles, there is some in-person time for collaboration, learning and building relationships with clients, peers, leaders, and communities. As an employer, we will be as flexible as possible to support your specific work/life needs.
