  • Implementation/configuration of security standards in firewalls (i.e. NIST, OWASP);
  • Managing problems and (security) incidents (e.g. database crashes, fraud incidents like phishing,…):
  • Identifying the “root causes” of problems (i.e. root cause analysis) at every level of the solution (application, network, infrastructure, storage,…);
  • Troubleshooting of databases to maintain the integrity, performance and efficiency of database systems;
  • Troubleshooting of encrypted (SSL/TLS) traffic up to TCP/IP level and implement PKI at infrastructure level;
