Your typical random day at Talpa Network Technology
• Your day starts with a fresh cup of coffee, as you are eager to take a look at your monitors for possible issues and to catch up with the latest security news and innovations;
• Your various colleagues welcome you and join you for coffee and starting the day;
• Your main activity as a DevSecOps is to smartly monitor and automate the security of our Cloud Technology CI/CD driven development projects so you will spend a big chunk of your day on this;
• You enjoy to pro-actively assess the security of the DevOps platforms, so at 10 you start your daily round of not yet automated checks and continue to test new security innovations you learned about earlier that day.
• While conducting your work you get to use your preferred tools like AWS CLi, Tenable.io (Nessus), Splunk, Nmap and other various developer & hacker tooling;
• You may find a security incident which you dissolve in cooperation with your colleagues and innovate to better monitor and possibly prevent it from happening in the future. You update documentation and share this great innovation with the CISO to help him have an accurate picture of our galaxy.
• Time flies, and you walk out of the office with your colleagues to have lunch at the IJ harbour;
• After lunch you join your colleagues for a “potje” at the football table. Here lightspeeds are achieved as you hone your skills.
• Battles are won and lost but work has to continue as you are invited to a meeting with a project team to support their work and supply them with the tools and information to help them securely innovate. You align with their planning to execute initial scoping and plan to execute a vulnerability assessment to get them ready for a full penetration test which you help coordinate and manage.
• You end the day by tackling a few emails & tickets and update documentation.
