Working with data of over 6 billion customers, brings great responsibility. At Vattenfall, we take this responsibility seriously and we make sure that these data are safe against hackers, aren’t misused and are accessible only for those who need them. Of course, we comply to the strict privacy regulations in the EU. As a security organization, we advise other employees and management who work on day-to-day bases with data, on how to keep the data secure. To do this, we need insights in how the organization operates and we are in constant contact with the employees and management. In a large organization like Vattenfall this can be a complex task. Therefore we are looking for new IT tools that could support this.
Please note that this internship is only available to the students registered at a Dutch educational institution.
What are you going to do?
The Security organization at Vattenfall wants to make use of data and new technology to work more efficiently. Are you interested in making this possible through research and realizing new tools?

The actual assignment will be adjusted, based on your preferences, knowledge, experience and available time. It is possible to combine this internship with the thesis project in agreement with the manager.
