Within the security discipline we, ICT Group, assist organisations in the world of IT and OT in the structure, maintenance, and performance of robust Security Management Systems. Where other businesses mostly focus on pen-testing and ethical hacking when it comes to security, we predominantly focus on prevention on the basis of risk analysis through threat modelling, security by design, and secure programming. Prevention is better than cure!

For our security practice we developed a traineeship during which you are being crammed for the position of Security Officer in the IT/OT world. Experienced professionals from the practice introduce you to this interesting world and show and let you experience everything in a combination of theoretical and practical forms of learning. After the traineeship you start working on our internal projects and at our customers.
