Cyber Security Jobs

On the hunt for digital threats

As cyber security moves up the boardroom agenda, Deloitte's fast-growing cyber risk team is on the search for passionate cyber security professionals like yourself. Evaluating ever-evolving digital threats and consulting our clients on how to protect their systems and data as well as implementing security solutions is only part of your day-to-day work. Learn more about who we are looking for and why you should join our cyber security team.

Cyber security is rapidly becoming the most critical topic for companies worldwide. As the world relies more and more on digital solutions, cyberattacks are also on the rise. And they are developing faster and further.

Your job is not only to keep up with the cyber criminals but also to stay one-step ahead of them - showing our customers how to protect themselves from ever-evolving threats and attacks. Cyber security and privacy issues have become a mission-critical challenge for many businesses. It is not just about a defensive view on the world, but digitalization and the move to cloud technology requires a solid integration of security and digitalization. Thanks to cyber technology, security risks can be identified and prevented at an early stage. This makes the world a little safer for our clients and us all.

One step ahead of cyber criminals

Our clients need to understand whether and how their systems work and the substantial amount of personal and commercial data they design, implement or operate are appropriately protected from cyber attacks, failure, exploitation, theft, fraud and abuse. That's where our cyber security team comes in. Our Cyber Security Analysts, Cyber Security Engineers, and Security Consultants are relentless when it comes to increasing the security of our client in order to enable their digitalization. Our work requires an understanding of complex enterprise systems and varied industries, a razor-sharp mind and the ability to advise high-level executives properly. You and your team are ultimately responsible for finding out which cyber threats are lurking in the shadows, developing and implementing strategies for our clients to circumvent them. Similarly, we work with clients on how to enable digitalization by implementing security products and technology. Sound like a lot of theory? Don’t worry – depending on your role, you’ll also get the chance to check networks and operating systems, conduct penetration tests, and design policies for our clients to use.

A wide range of opportunities from operations to vigilance

Just as the dangers in cyberspace are varied, so are the opportunities we offer to you – finding your own thing within our Cyber Team. Depending on what area your heart beats for, you could be part of one of the following teams:

  • Cyber Strategy & Transformation: We help our clients understand today’s cyber threat landscape and assess the maturity of their cyber security capabilities. With our broad expertise, we help them implement the desired changes, from the technology to the processes and roles they need.
  • Cyber Cloud and Infrastructure: We assist clients on their journey to the cloud and help them secure their IT infrastructure, whether it be for secure target operating models and architecture or actually implementing cyber cloud projects.
  • Identity and Access Management (IAM): We help the client understand how to use Identity and Access Management as an enabler of digitalization and the move to the cloud. We don’t just talk about it but deliver some of the most complex IAM implementations globally and in Switzerland.
  • Cyber Security Management & Operations: We help our clients understand today’s cyber threat landscape and assess the maturity of their cyber security capabilities. We also assess their vulnerability to cyber-attacks.
  • Data Protection and Compliance: We help clients identify and deal with privacy-related, legal, or business risks. We also help them with practical planning around privacy and a legal approach to compliance.
  • Vigilance: We pull together information (technology data and business data) to equip in-house security teams with context-rich intelligence to help them proactively detect and manage cyber threats and respond more effectively.
  • Resilience: We identify security threats at an early stage and help our clients rapidly respond and contain the damage.

As a recent graduate with a passion for cyber risk management, I chose to join Deloitte in part because the projects are extremely diverse and there are so many different topics to explore. The learning curve you experience throughout a project is very steep and you are pushed beyond your comfort zone to explore new areas. I also value Deloitte’s culture: as long as you deliver the work as you promised, it does not matter when you do it, which is great for one’s own productivity. I also love the “Women in Cyber” initiative: It showed me that Deloitte is in fact “walking the talk” on inclusion issues.

Consultant, Cyber Resilience

I started in the Deloitte Cyber Team as a Trainee and had the opportunity to continue as a Consultant. So far it was one of the best decisions of my life. The team is really cool, super diverse and very supportive. I love the variety of projects we have, some with more technical focus and others with less. Deloitte also gives you the opportunity to take responsibility within the company for initiatives and topics that you are personally interested in.
