Job Description

As a Cloud security architect at Accenture SecurityNL, you will lead our clients on the path to secure their Cloud (Hybrid) architectures. You will do so by leading projects where you remain close to the client and the (technical) Cloud security content.

Your job

You will be a content expert in the Cloud security team and consult clients to secure their Cloud architectures. You are expected to advise senior stakeholders and technical teams at clients to become their trusted go-to-point for experience and solutions to their Cloud security challenges. You work with (project) management, other (security) experts and more junior Accenture employees to drive projects home. These projects include implementations of Cloud security solutions, but also more strategic work. Internally facing, you help the Accenture Cloud security and client teams to deepen their Cloud security knowledge and solutioning skills.

Typical activities involve:

  • Designing and reviewing Cloud solutions with an eye for overview and details, to enable progress and quality to ensure we deliver with precision.

  • Working on security and non-security project proposals, leveraging your knowledge of and experience with Cloud security and architectures to propose the best solutions for the client.

  • Acting as an advisor for the client and our internal organization to accelerate Cloud security efforts across the board.

  • Shaping the internal Cloud security team as an inspirational example that can elevate less experienced colleagues to become their best Cloud security professionals.

Your team

At Accenture Security, we lead the field with our holistic approach, working carefully with our clients to help them identify and address security challenges. The impact of our work reaches throughout the entire security lifecycle and across value chains, ultimately keeping businesses and end users protected all over the world.
In practice, that might mean deploying cutting-edge security systems, using AI to analyse security risks, or developing defense strategies based on a combination of technology and user behaviour. We aren't limited to a single set of tools to deliver security for our clients, so we take a proactive and creative approach to finding the best solution for every security problem.

This job is made for you if you recognize yourself in one or more of the following qualifications and backgrounds:

  • A Cloud accredited professional with over 3 years of job experience in building, designing and securing Cloud architectures;

  • Be a focal point for Cloud security internally in the team;
