As a senior security consultant, your role is to develop and define the strategy for the cyber defense centers (CDC) and align all activities with the CDC management of the customer. You will have strategic importance for the department because you’ll be interacting with the CDC management board and translating any customer demand into follow-on business opportunities for Siemens. Depending upon project success, you could potentially lead the cyber security satellite center in Switzerland.

  • Identify and funnel follow-on business opportunities to position Siemens as the go-to-partner for OT security services
  • Depending upon project success, identify new security team members, manage their enabling- / on-boarding process and take over team lead responsibility for the new cyber security satellite center in Switzerland

Your skills and experience
