Graduate Technology Cyber Specialist Edinburgh Autumn 2021
Cyber Security - Specialist Advisory
In Cyber Security we deal with some of the most urgent issues facing businesses and governments today. We help organisations from all sectors operate securely in the digital world. Our specialist advisors help clients reduce their exposure to threats, improve their defences and respond to cyber incidents. We also help our clients address the legal issues around breaches, data protection and privacy and implement a culture and environment where people understand how to behave securely and do the right thing.
It’s a vast and complex field that involves everything from cyber security strategy and technical design, implementing effective security solutions and processes, to responding to cyber incidents and breaches.
Our Specialist Advisory team is focused on supporting highly technical specialisms which help our clients to detect and respond to vulnerabilities in their IT environments. On this three year programme you’ll dedicate yourself to the specialism that you join to build up your technical knowledge and experience to be an effective technical cyber security expert. Some of the specialisms you could work in include Crisis Management, Threat Operations (Incident Response, Threat Vulnerability Management, and Compromise Delivery) or Identity & Access Management.
