He always tries to keep up-to-date, both when it comes to his team and the topics that interest his colleagues. “When you are responsible for such a large area, there is a fairly serious risk of spending the entire day swamped with paperwork and organizational tasks. For me, it is very important to maintain daily contact with the data center and the infrastructure that I’m responsible for.”
His colleague Marco, as a Consultant Information Security at Arvato Systems, also keeps his finger on the company’s pulse. He started at Bertelsmann in 2009 as a dual student and then switched to his current position. During his studies, he developed an interest in IT security. “I like my job because it never gets boring. Every day, we learn new information about data protection, but we also discover new security threats we need to address in order to protect our clients’ data. The field is changing so rapidly, and that means my job always stays exciting.” In addition, the 26-year-old consultant believes that he can make a real difference in his line of work. “We bring good ideas to life here. Our work provides the company with new approaches and innovations, and we can see fast results – for example, when processes get more secure.
