Afstudeerstage Cyber Risk

What impact will you make?

As a graduate intern at Deloitte Cyber you focus full time on completing your thesis, and getting to know the Deloitte Cyber team along the way. From Deloitte you receive support in the form of a personal thesis supervisor, an expert from our team and your go-to person for questions and advice. You have the opportunity to take a sneak peak into the life of our consultants and lay the groundwork for a career in Cyber.

This is how

The topic of your thesis is entirely up to you. We ask that you provide us with a short proposal when applying so we can discuss this further during the interviews. You can find several examples of thesis topics below, or visit our Cyber Graduate site for even more ideas.  

Governance structure for ICS security
Market research shows that many organizations with Industrial Control Systems struggle with implementing risk mitigating controls regarding cyber security. These controls are usually based on the controls implemented in the IT field, but are these controls the right controls for the ICS field as well? What are the differences in requirements and effectiveness of the controls between ICS and IT?

Identity & Access Management
Identifying who is who online becomes the basis for digital business. Both externally, towards customers and partners, as well as internally, towards employees and guests. How their identities are established and how they can be used will enable or disable digital business. What are the most common problems in specific sectors with regards to identities and access? By interviewing different stakeholders you will identify and analyze the most common issues. Are there any differences per sector? The goal is to give specific sector related solutions for the identified problems.

Security Operations Center (SOC)
A modern Security Operations Center (SOC) contains a vast array of sophisticated detection and prevention technologies using a virtual sea of cyber intelligence. The access to security talent is however limited which makes it necessary to make hard choices on which capabilities to prioritize. This research will help cyber security leadership optimize the effectiveness and development of their SOC analysts for the best possible long term results.
