Job description

About Northwave

As a leading European Cyber Security specialist, we have been providing 24*7 cyber security services for over 17 years. We not only look at the technology, but also at human behavior and processes within the organization, and thus provide integral security services. Organizations that take their cyber security seriously therefore like to work with us. We take the complexity of cyber security management out of their hands, but they remain in control.

We are a fast-growing organization of 250+ employees, which is the market leader in the field of information security. Our 100% self-financed European company has the mission to make high-quality integral information security accessible to organizations that depend on their digital business.

As an Incident Responder, you play a crucial role in assisting clients in overcoming security incidents efficiently. Your primary responsibility involves responding to emergency calls and providing on-site support to help the organization get back to business, as quickly and securely as possible.

Upon arrival, you identify and assess the extent of the security incident. Suppose, for instance, customer accounts have been compromised, and sensitive data has been exfiltrated. In such cases, your team works diligently to mitigate further damage, secure evidence, and compile detailed reports for legal proceedings. Your duties extend beyond containment and remediation; you collaborate with clients to implement tailored security measures, ensuring their swift return to business. 

While each day presents unique challenges, the time between incidents offers opportunities for personal development, process refinement and knowledge sharing within our team and with cyber security experts other departments.
