IT security specialists and experts are essential for Telekom Security when accompanying customers in their secure digital transformation. Security is an issue across all corporate areas, is a matter that begins in the users’ and customers’ minds, and extends to personal, physical, and IT security.

Our employees are the key factors in successfully meeting the security requirements of our customers. Therefore, we teamed up with the RWTH Business School to develop our Digital Security Practitioner Program, a study course that uses your potential and enhances your skills. 


Our Digital Security Practitioner Program combines the acquisition of skills with the practical study of collaboration across functions and departments. 


The 6-month part-time program is a virtual course and is accompanied by two in-person events. Therefore, participants are expected to demonstrate a high degree of initiative from the very first day. The course consists of four different modules at the RWTH Aachen Business School and is rounded off with a security challenge. 


Once you have completed the program, you will receive an internationally recognized university certificate incl. confirmation of ECTS credits that can be recognized in certain study courses.

The Junior Program was designed to make it easier for our young talents to settle into the company and has now become a fixed part of the onboarding process. 

In addition to developing functional skills, participants attend various training events covering topics such as methods, technology and security, and personal development. You can also build a network for sharing knowledge and information.


The focus of the program is getting to know our company better. It also develops your functional, methodical, and personal skills. In addition, the program gives you the opportunity to network with other participants and work on a project with them. 


The 9-month scheme takes place in a blended learning format. There are both virtual and in-person events. The latter help to boost networking skills in particular.
