Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got to Quorum Cyber
My amazing journey with Quorum Cyber started at a student event at Edinburgh Napier University where I’m currently studying in my first year of BEng GA Cyber Security. The Managing Director of Quorum Cyber, Federico Charosky, was giving a talk at the event, all about Work and Life in Cyber. After hearing his talk and talking to others in the team who were present at the event, I reached out to them to see if any opportunities were available. Several conversations, one refreshed CV, and an interview later, here I am – the new Graduate Apprentice Security Analyst at Quorum Cyber.
What’s it like to work here?
Everyone at Quorum Cyber has been very friendly and welcoming. I have been invited to most of the customer meetings, which has been a great opportunity for me to learn more about the company, the services that we offer and to be introduced to our customers. By my second week at Quorum, I had met almost everyone in the company, and I have been shadowing my team members. I’ve been very excited about writing my first blog entry about Covid-19 phishing scams and I’m looking forward to new challenges.
What do you like best about Quorum Cyber?
Outside of my main work, I also try to participate in as many IT related events as possible. Last week I took part in Cyber Scotland Connect Online – Lockdown Special! It made me very proud to see my company engaged in Cyber Threat Coalition. I hope to be able to volunteer in the future as my knowledge and skills continue to expand.
