  • Good team collaboration and networking skills.
  • Interest in open source and cloud-native technologies.


The challenge

Cybercrime is estimated to cost the world economy more than USD 5 trillion in the period 2019 through 2023. Cybersecurity investments continue to grow every year.

  • How do we ensure that our efforts level the playing field and increase the cost of nefarious activities?
  • How can we leverage offensive capabilities to better understand posture and elevate our defense?
  • How can we make cybersecurity more scalable through company wide collaboration and interaction? Cybersecurity is a team sport.


Industrial companies are becoming more digital and automated, and we are experiencing a never-before-seen fusion of the digital and physical world. Industrial equipment and systems are more interconnected, machine learning and cloud computing are changing the scale and speed of what we can do and when. On the horizon, emerging technologies, including ubiquitous connectivity, AI, and quantum computing are waiting to make an impact.


Many of the incidents are caused by exploitation of classic vulnerabilities. The 2019 Top-10 list of exploited vulnerabilities contains CVEs as old as 2015. It is clear that foundational security capabilities and hygiene are and will continue to be very important. At the same time, the merging of the physical and digital world, together with technology evolution, will result in new challenges requiring new cybersecurity methods and solutions.
