Security for IndustrialDigitalization in the 21st Century

Here’s the rightopportunity for You!


Cyber security is a key enabler for Digitalization in industry. Without security and trust, the benefits of interconnected industrial systems will not come as quickly and comprehensively as needed. A crucial element of providing and maintaining the security of industrial devices is comprehensive, risk-based, and usable vulnerability management. Hence, Siemens must make sure that our products and solutions meet and exceed these expectations.

Do you think you can decide when and when not to patch an industrial system? Do you want to develop technology to finally make patching a non-problem, even in critical infrastructure and networks, e.g., based on Digital Twins? Are you excited about improving the area of vulnerability management in industrial environments on a global scale, and are your never satisfied to accept any status quo that is less than optimal? If you answered YES, then come and join our team NOW, we NEED you!


Our research team is composed of makers, innovators, engineers, and researchers that unite a passion about cyber security and securing our customers’ assets and networks - in domains such as control systems used in energy utilities that are part of the nation’s critical infrastructure, smart factories, building automation systems, intelligent transportation systems, healthcare, and innovative new products and solutions developed by Siemens. Our close contact to all our business units in Siemens provides the opportunity to contribute to and gain experience in real industrial applications.
