Senior Cloud Security Specialist

Is hacking your way of life? Do you have a special passion for cloud security? Do you want to test and advice our clients in or moving to the cloud?

Many companies are moving their software and data to the cloud, making cloud security a rapidly growing domain. Unfortunately, more and more cloud data breach incidents are in the news, often due to incorrectly configured environments, incorrect risk assessments or human errors. Therefore, it is ever more critical to support our clients on cloud solutions from a security perspective.

Within this fast evolving landscape, Secura gets many customer requests to validate their cloud solutions. Therefore we are looking for a Senior Cloud Security Specialist to perform complex cloud assessments and to coach younger team members in this field.

As a part of our Security Assessment team (in Amsterdam or Eindhoven), you will work on testing Cloud applications and  security configuration. You also advice customers on design issues, configuration settings and (security) baselines. You are able to handle complex questions in the cloud landscape with your up-to-date knowledge of Office 365, AWS and Microsoft Azure. We also expect you to take a leading role within the development of configuration baselines in our cloud test tools.

As a Cloud Security Expert you will be in client-facing role, supporting and guiding clients in their experience with Secura’s security solutions and services. You will be responsible for ensuring timely project delivery (with your team members) and responses to our clients’ Request for Proposals (RFPs). You will collaborate with our business units to refine service offerings.

You are a Senior Cloud Security Specialist with:

  • A completed Technical BSc/MSc/PhD degree.

  • Preferably deployment orchestration, automation, and security configuration management (Puppet, Chef, Docker, etc.) experience.
  • Preferably CI / CD: Azure Devops (VSTS) experience.
  • Cloud Security Certification by SANS (SEC524), CSA (CCSK) or ISC2 (CCSK). 
  • Good communication skills (verbal and written, English and preferably also Dutch).
  • Ability to work independently with minimal direction (self-starting and motivated).

What can we offer you?
Secura is an independent, specialized security expert company. Our mission is to provide insights into our customers’ security.  Secura provides security advice, audit, testing, training and certification services for our customers.
