"No pain, no gain"
A short introduction of what you do at Sogeti:
I manage the Sogeti Belux SOC team. SOC is Security Operation center providing to our clients Cyber security services such as 24/7 security monitoring, advisories and threat intelligence.
Tell us a bit about your background:
Having worked first in a regional ICT company then in worldwide chemical company, I discovered lot of different client contexts and different technologies conducting me to be flexible and versatile. After 15 years working on technical side of IT infrastructure, I decided to go back to school and get my master degree in IT project management in 2012. This was the catalyst for a job change, so I joined Sogeti in 2013.
My career at Sogeti:
Sogeti offered me rare opportunities ! First into the infrastructure department, with the Project Service Delivery Center, I participated and led various client IT projects. Most interesting for me was definitively Cybersecurity project. So in 2016, when Cybersecurity practice has been create in Sogeti Belux, it was impossible for to me to refuse joining it when practice manager asked me. As project manager first, then as Service Client Manager and finally as Service Delivery Manager, I work into the Security Operation Center.
What are you most passionate about in your area of expertise?
Cyber security monitoring is a cross activity: Governance, technical topics, people, business, all are part of the game ! This makes the job so interesting for me. To be honest, I kept a small preference for technical side…
What is a typical workday like for you?
Changes take place almost every day ! activities are really varied: from administrative to highly technical areas, no monotony.
What makes it different to work for Sogeti?
Sogeti is the first company for witch I work that give so much opportunity and space to dare. I do not feel boxed at all.
