SA1 are excited to announce that we have a new member of our Support Team, Cameron Williams. Cameron has come to SA1 after completing his Cyber Security Advance Apprenticeship at Fujitsu’s Security Operations Centre in Warrington. Cameron will now be part of the 1st line support team assisting all customer support enquiries, as well as assisting in any cyber security projects or initiatives.
Cameron applied for the position at SA1 after completing his apprenticeship as he wanted to gain a broader understanding and experience within the IT industry. Cameron commented, “I thoroughly enjoyed my apprenticeship and feel I have learnt a lot of valuable information about cyber security. When I found the advertisement at SA1, it appealed to me as I was looking to take the next step in my career and broaden my knowledge base. I believe the varied tasks and situations available to me at SA1 will really give me the additional experience I need.”
Stephen Lawrance, SA1’s helpdesk manager commented, “With cyber security being such an important topic in the IT industry, Cameron’s experience made him stand out from the other applicants. When we interviewed Cameron, it was his honest approach and eagerness to expand his skillset that truly made us feel he was the perfect fit for us.”
Simon Ahearne, managing director at SA1 has commented, “Cameron has been a welcomed addition to the team. Here at SA1 we are continuously growing and developing, and are always eager to give young individuals the chance to gain the experience they require. With cyber security being such an important topic within the industry, and being an organisation that prides ourselves on helping our customers stay protected, taking on an individual who already had experience in the area was always going to be an added benefit for us. Cameron has fitted in well with our support team and has already assisted some of our more senior engineers in projects revolving around cyber security.”
Having a sufficient IT infrastructure is a fundamental component to any organisation that wants to function efficiently and effectively in this economic market.
The UK has recently opened its new National Cyber Security Centre, which is part of a £1.9bn five-year strategy by the UK government to tackle cyber crime.
