Over deze functie: Junior Security Engineer

Brunel provides consulting services to large and medium-sized companies within the specializations of Engineering, IT and Life Sciences. Within our organization, we have a passion for people and focus on recognizing, training, and guiding talent to the next phase in their career.

For our client in the financial industry in Leuven, we are looking for a junior Security Engineer to strengthen the security threat monitoring team. Here you will monitor the existing security processes, solving problems and make them better by trying to prevent them from happening. With these experts, you are committed to cybersecurity every day.

Our customers and employees deserve peace of mind, even though cyber-attacks are becoming more frequent. To combat this, you and your colleagues will review incidents and help determine what needs to be done:

  • You monitor and document the security of our critical servers and systems
  • You monitor the alarms generated by our security systems and take action on them: you set priorities and escalate an issue when necessary
  • Based on your knowledge of attack techniques, you will help to find the root cause of security alarms. For this you dive into the log files of servers and systems
  • You will test and fine tune security alarms and incident response procedures
  • You will discuss within the teams what to do in case of incidents and how to prevent them in the future
  • You help colleagues who are resolving the incident with additional analyses, if necessary.
  • You help ensure that we are working according to the right priorities.

You participate in sessions on continuous improvement and help think through these questions:

  • What lessons can we learn from how certain incidents were handled? Can things be done differently or better next time?
  • What are the weaknesses in our security controls?
  • Can our processes be more efficient? Do we pass on information to each other in the best way?

Over jou

Next to a passion for IT and continuous improvement, you have:

  • A broad view on the IT Operating systems & middleware (like Windows, Unix, Linux, databases) and networks
  • Good knowledge of malware (types) and cyber-attack techniques (like the kill chain)
  • Knowledge of security tools for detection and analysis security events are a plus
  • Experience with ticketing systems, network security, firewall or IDS is a plus
  • Passion for the Agile way of working with daily Scrums and Sprints
  • Fluency in Dutch is a must, knowledge of English or French are a plus

Wat wij je bieden

Will you share your talent with us? Then you will get something in return:

  • A contract of indefinite duration with 32 vacation days
  • A company car with unlimited fuel card (within Belgium)
  • A year-end bonus (13th month), annual bonus and a monthly net allowance
  • Meal vouchers, eco vouchers and a comprehensive cell phone subscription with unlimited calls and texts + 50GB data/month
  • Hospitalization insurance and group insurance
  • A personal development plan
  • Lots of variety and the chance to grow quickly by working on multiple, challenging projects
  • Fun events such as our Welcome on Board evenings, the opportunity for a new starter to get to know other colleagues and feel welcome at Brunel
Apply now and let us boost your career.
