Job Description & Summary

Are you ambitious and talented? Then you may qualify for our 16-week cyber security & forensic technology traineeship – our Fast Track Programme. Have you (almost) graduated, and are you eager to kick-start your career and interested in building a more secure information society? Then this unique opportunity is for you.

The traineeship is for 16 weeks. You’ll begin by acquiring a firm grounding in technology, security and consultancy skills. You’ll learn to use new tools and work on cases with trainees from different competence groups. In the meantime, you’ll work on obtaining 6 valuable security certifications (including CISSP).

The CF&P team focuses on creating a more secure society for major multinational and international enterprises and public sector organisations. Together with more than 150 other professionals in the Netherlands you work on leading and cutting edge projects that cover the entire cyber security spectrum.

After you finish the Fast Track Programme, you are one of our cyber security consultants specialised in Digital Forensics & eDiscovery . This team solves complex data and big data issues, both Dutch and international. It does this by utilising structured, unstructured and system data. For example, an issue of a well-known magazine was leaked before the official release date and the publisher wanted to know who was responsible for the hack. In only 20 days, our team conducted a structured secret data review and solved the case with the help of special high-tech tools.
