As an IT security consultant, it is your job to protect the valuable data of your company and its customers. You develop comprehensive security strategies and strengthen the security awareness of your company. In addition, you conduct tests to verify security and implement IT security solutions.


Ethical hackers or pentesters are information professionals who crack IT systems after companies have instructed them to do so. They actively try to circumvent existing security settings. In doing so, they reveal how vulnerable an (operating) system or a web application is - a demanding and complex job that requires a high degree of creativity.


In this job, you are responsible for the planning, installation, administration and maintenance of the firewall and network infrastructure. In the process, you develop network and security concepts. In addition, you take care of the coordination and implementation of projects in the area of networks and security. As part of your tasks, you find solutions to optimise the IT infrastructure.
