The European Parliament is looking for ICT Security Professionals!
The European Parliament is organising a selection procedure for the recruitment of temporary staff for the Parliament’s Directorate-General for Innovation and Technological Support (DG ITEC) in Brussels or Luxembourg.
The selection procedure aims to find suitable candidates to work as Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Security Professionals.
You can find detailed information on the job and the selection procedure at Apply4EP.
Apply before 22 April 2024, 17.00 (Luxembourg time).
Many of us use corporate computers for tasks unrelated to work.
For that reason, many candidates to EPSO’s competitions could expect to be able to use their corporate computers to sit EPSO’s online selection tests, known as remotely proctored tests. However, that is often not the case.
These tests require a third party – an external contractor – to take control of your computer while you take the test. Among other things, this prevents candidates from browsing the internet or running applications outside the remit of the tests.
In the digital environment of EPSO’s institutional clients, there are multiple layers of IT security applied to corporate computers, including laptops.
In order to enable online selection tests to run on a corporate computer – including those made available to staff of EPSO’s institutional clients (e.g. the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and others) – multiple security controls would have to be disabled, relaxed or changed by an authorised administrator.
Understandably, EPSO’s institutional clients, including other corporate stakeholders, must ensure that the risks to their digital environment are reduced to a minimum.
