Data Security & GDPR Internship


As a result of legislation, the General Data Protection Regulation will apply to Accenture as well. As an intern, you will investigate which data security tooling is applicable for which client case. You are going to work with real client cases. This role provides you the freedom and opportunities to be at your best. And at the same time, we will give you the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills on a wide range of tools, technologies, and methodologies.

Your job

You will conduct research in close collaboration with our GDPR focus group and actively disseminate and discuss findings with the GDPR focus group attendants. It is relevant for the GDPR to develop an active data security framework, which would be your responsibility. Lastly you will develop recommendations, models and training material for data security tooling.

Accenture Technology leverages design thinking, industry insights and the latest digital methodologies to help clients innovate, grow and improve their businesses. Our expertise, capabilities and experience mean that our clients (including some of the biggest brands in the world) trust us to find the right solutions for their needs.

Together with our talented international colleagues, we focus on connecting the needs of businesses with the new possibilities that come with technological progress.

  • Fluent in Dutch and English
