  • After all, how can you become a great Security Software Engineer if you haven't seen what's happening on the front lines in our Security Operations Centre?
  • Every step of the way a professional mentor will support you, with access to world-class learning opportunities both online and in the classroom while the whole time you are working alongside teams who are tackling real-world projects for our clients.
