Manager Cyber Resilience Center

Alliander is part of critical infrastructure and therefore has a priority in protecting digital systems. The CRC has an essential role and makes sure corporate impact is minimized in case of a cyber attack. By using identified corporate risks, they implement the correct scenario’s, use cases and corresponding logging. These use cases result in alarm which will be handled with adequate priority. Next to that, they search proactively for vulnerabilities in the intern and extern infrastructure. This knowledge allows Alliander to protect the organization against future cyber attacks.



The increasing number of incidents and the complexity of attack patterns call for intensive digital asset protection. The Security Operations Center (SOC) has a crucial role in doing so by signaling and preventing cyber security incidents. This rapidly changing environment call for the SOC to move along with the threats and it's crucial to not only innovate technically, but also calls for the right people with adequate skill levels.
