Job description

The Security group of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at TU Eindhoven is looking for a Security Analyst to expand its technical staff and to drive the establisment of the Eindhoven Security Hub (ESH).

The Eindhoven Security Hub (ESH) and the Security Operations Center (SOC) 
TU/e and its industrial partners are joining forces in the Eindhoven Security Hub to develop a smarter, leaner SOC solution, that provides an answer to the increased security and monitoring needs of society in general and the small and medium enterprises in particular. The ESH SOC will adopt cutting-edge technology (including machine learning and deep learning based solutions) to address the needs of a broader range of business, including e.g. those adopting Industrial Control Systems and IoT technology. Last but not least, the ESH SOC will be a testbed for pioneering research in intrusion detection, prevention, and response. 

The SOC is responsible for the availability, confidentiality and integrity of important, often privacy-sensitive data with which the ESH works.
