Cloud Security Consultant
Would you like to be part of the fastest growing entity of Accenture? Strengthen your skills as part of a global powerhouse of 5000+ security specialists and enjoy the freedom of a start-up environment, backed by access to Accenture's world-class resources? Do you want to help some of the biggest clients in the world and work on exiting projects? We are looking for young spirited (remember, age is just a number!), ambitious, hardworking and fun to work with new colleagues! Make an impact and create a difference, apply now!
Within Accenture Security, we’re seeking exceptional individuals to pioneer security solutions that blend risk strategy, digital identity, cyber defense, application security and managed services. Using the coolest next-gen tech, you’ll have every chance to stay one step ahead of cybercrime and out-smart hackers.
What will your day look like?
Firstly, no two days are the same! But we can always try to give you an example. As a Security Consultant, you will help clients to translate business objectives to practical IT Security solutions, keeping external regulations in mind. Our Security Consultants combine technological and advisory skills and help design and implement innovative information systems.
You’ll arrive at your client’s factory to meet the manager and his team, responsible for the migration of business-critical applications to the cloud in the next few months. You’ll feel excited since you’re about to learn the details of how these legacy applications will be combined with cutting-edge cloud micro services solutions, which will take your client’s IT landscape and business options to the next level of innovation. After the meeting, you’ll go back to your office to have a gourmet lunch with your team and go over your initial thoughts. The challenge your client gave you is to make sure the new environment for their existing applications and new services is safe and secure from the immense number of cyber threats. After lunch, you’ll start brainstorming ideas and identifying all the sources of knowledge you’ll need to quickly tap into to prepare the best possible solution for your client. By the end of the meeting, you have a clear piece of the scope to manage and a goal to go out there and figure it out before your next team meeting. You finish your day with a quick chat with your team lead to bounce your first ideas against and confirm your next steps. You’ll be looking forward to tomorrow, when you’ll start engaging with subject matter experts from all over the world who will be more than happy to share their thoughts with you which you can then compile into a solution that will make your client grateful and your team content with the job well done.
