Sander, manager: “No day is really the same within security, primary focus is designing secure solutions and advising business and IT on implementing secure systems. These systems are within our own data centers, next to cloud services we are using or in collaboration with partners. Focus is not just on the Netherlands, a global focus is really required. Cybercrime is on-going 24/7 worldwide; our task is to keep the bank safe in the first place.“


Jan, security advisor: “You will work together with IT and with business on their needs and the threats you see to business externally but also internally. This requires an ongoing dialogue with all parties involved and a good oversight of the business domain. It is very nice to have a team of dedicated colleagues in the Netherlands and abroad.
