OT Security Specialist

OT Security how we see it

OT security is a specialized branch in Cybersecurity. Our specialists are passionate in finding the equilibrium in between securing industrial environments and ensuring excelling production performance and continuity.

Following the industrial standards (and beyond) we provide our customers with state of the art assessments, architectural solutions, tools and methodologies ensuring their production facilities are well protected.

Operating in a small team, we ensure our staff gets in contact with all parts of this specialism, both from a theoretical, procedural as executional part of security projects.  

What do we expect from our new colleague?

Sure, we do expect some pretty key stuff (see ‘wishlist’ below for details on OT security profiles), but what we are really looking for are curious people with the right maturity, mentality and a willingness to ‘challenge our team forward’ and deliver exceptional experiences to our customers.
