Are you curious by nature? At YBS we don’t see technology as limited to the confines of a traditional IT department. Instead, we’re looking for forward-thinking Digital & Technology Apprentices to support our business ambitions.
Information Security Consultant
Today’s world runs on information. It’s the fuel in the engine of the global economy. It keeps things going. In a world where most things are now Digital people buy, sell and trade information.
Keeping information safe is an increasingly important issue. How do you know that something is digitally safe and secure? How do you know that it’s really secret or private, that only the right people have access to it and that it’s going to be there when you need it?
All of this is the role of an information security team and in the team you will work as an Information Security Consultant. In this ever more connected world of cyber and digital, it’s our role to keep things safe, and in keeping things safe, we make things happen. Within this apprentice scheme you would also spend time within our Financial Crime departments.
