What do you do at Level Level?

I’m at Level Level for my graduation internship which involves the technical part of cyber security. I’m graduating from the study HBO-ICT Network & Systems Engineering at The Hague University in Delft, with Cyber Security Technology as a major. In 2021 Level Level will achieve it’s ISO 27001 certification, a process that will create extra awareness about security in a broad sense, but also specifically about the security of the hosting platform. The Level Level WordPress hosting platform is continuously being developed so that it fits perfectly with the WordPress ecosystem. The security of the platform is also continuously improved and monitored. Level Level has built up a good track record when it comes to keeping the websites and webshops under its responsibility safe. But you have to keep innovating. I am going to work on a great challenge; have real-time insight into security incidents that affect the hosting platform. Hackers are constantly scanning the internet for opportunities and you want to stay ahead of them. That’s what I’m going to do!

Why Level Level?

I discovered Level Level at the HBO ICT job event that is held annually in Rotterdam. Level Level appeals to me, because it’s a completely different kind of organization than during my internship before (National government), but of course also the atmosphere I enjoy!

What do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time I also work a lot with ICT. It is nice if you can turn your hobby into work and helping others. I especiallly find the technical side interesting: programming, experimenting with raspberry pie (Raspberry Pi 😉) I also like to play games, especially the lesser known driving simulator Live For Speed. I also have been a member of scouting for a couple of year now.

What do you want to accomplish at Level Level?

During my graduation at Level Level I want to help as much as possible with my knowledge, not only in the field of cyber security, but also with my knowledge of Linux. That is why I got off to a good start with my assignment: to keep working on it so that I can make it perfect. And secretly because I also want to help other departments with other things!
