Organisatie- en afdelingsomschrijving

At the SOC they work together in an informal way and provide a lot of variety and opportunities to keep developing yourself. Our client works in an agile way which means that efficiency, productivity, agility and innovative power come first. For you as a SOC analyst, this means an interactive and inspiring way of working together across the team and departmental boundaries. These are a few interesting new developments:

  • Upscaling scope of SOC with international mandate: means that the SOC is going to provide security monitoring services to offices globally (which are now doing a lot themselves)
  • Machine learning initiatives in-house, not buy systems, but develop it themselves
  • Extension of scope towards AWS and Azure

The team security operations consists of 40 tot 50 colleagues working on threat intelligence, monitoring & incident response, use case building and red teaming.


As a SOC Analyst you work in an extensive team of security specialists. It’s your mayor task to proactively seek potential security risk and advise proper measurements. With your capabilities you have enough leverage to influence in a strategic and tactical way. You do not want to be a manager but a specialist, who will have big influence in strategic and tactical decisions. Therefor you interact with the development teams and prevent security issues.

Furthermore as SOC analyst, you ensure that the daily activities relating to security monitoring and incident response, run smoothly.

  • Excellent knowledge of network protocols, pen testing, operating systems, security monitoring tools, network analysis tools and attack techniques;
  • Already applied this knowledge to HBO / WO level in a similar role for more then 3 years;
