What do you like about working in the Radar team?
It is a very exciting place to work and that brings many new learning and success experiences every day. Therefore it never gets boring. I particularly appreciate the team culture and the way we work together. We cooperate very closely and the mutual support for different problems works very well. An open culture of discussion ensures that each individual is heard, can contribute and eventually make a difference. That is very valuable.
What challenges do you see analysts in the cybersecurity industry currently facing?
Attacks are constantly becoming more sophisticated. The integration of operational technology (OT) into IT networks becomes increasingly important, as the manufacturing industry is also a popular target for attackers. I see an urgent task in catching up regarding this field in Austria and Europe.
Also this requires trained specialists, right?
Specialists in the cyber security sector are hard to find in Austria, especially where combined knowledge of IT and OT security is required. Setting up your own Cyber Defense Center or Security Operations Center is often a major challenge and very costly. Many companies therefore turn to Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) like us.
What tips do you have for future candidates applying for analyst jobs at Radar?
In my opinion, you most importantly have to demonstrate motivation and a basic knowledge of IT and network technology. A basic understanding of the most common attack vectors and problems in IT Security is also needed. Expressing all that definitely scores points in your application.
