As a Data Security Consultant at Accenture Security NL, you will advise our clients on how to secure their IT 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 the security measures that are being implemented, are also understood by the business.

  • Processes: Data Security 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: Data Security relies on techniques such as data obfuscation, hashing, encryption, etc. You must be able to understand these techniques and their purpose. But please note that in this role, it is not expected of you to do hands-on command line engineering knowledge.

  • Data Ownership:  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 and enable the business.
