2018 Graduate programme (cyber-security and data science)
Are you a soon-to-be graduate of a bachelor's or master's programme in computer/data science, engineering or a related field - or a recent graduate with less than 12 months' work experience?
Based in the heart of Europe, our cyber-security and data science graduate programme offers practical project experience for up to 11 months. You will work on complex business-driven projects and problems designed to stretch you, and use a range of state-of-the-art technologies to find solutions.
Specifically, we are looking to augment our cyber-threat intrusion analysis capability by employing a data-centric analytic approach on the large volumes of disparate data (log) sources that we receive and monitor. These projects will strive to provide new advanced cyber-threat detection approaches based on big data analysis to help safeguard the integrity of our data and technology platforms.
You will work closely with our Security Operations Centre (SOC) team to identify cyber-security monitoring solutions through the use of techniques such as statistical methods, artificial intelligence, and machine learning in order to create and evaluate network/host activity trends to uncover anomalous (eg malicious) system activity.
You will work with leading professionals from around the world and be part of a stimulating organisational culture characterised by analytical rigour and challenging debate. You will enjoy exposure to ideas and projects beyond your immediate specialty and will play a valuable part in supporting the wider central banking community. Joining us is not just about launching your international career, it is about doing meaningful work for the public good and serving the global community.
