Head of Security at Lockheed Martin
“Embarking on a new career, I have spoken to numerous recruitment consultants who have offered much and delivered little. Chris at InfoSec People was one of the few exceptions; his approach to helping me find a new role was based on building a trusted relationship from which he could identify possibilities that would provide me with the challenges that I was looking for. He is exceptionally personable and professional, and his knowledge of his chosen sector and the recruitment industry at large is impressive in the extreme. Regardless of when I needed to talk to him, he was always available with the time to answer my questions, however mundane; time and experience has proven that his advice was always spot on. Whatever direction my career takes in the future, Chris will be one of the first people that I approach for advice. Both professionally and personally, I would have no hesitation in recommending him to colleagues and friends.”
Part of the reason we love what we do here at InfoSec People is that, as well as making great connections in our industry, we are also in a position to give something back to the wider community.
InfoSec People are headline sponsors of Cyber Cheltenham - www.cynam.org
CyNam (Cyber Cheltenham), is a new non-profit making organisation based in the heart of the UK’s cyber security community in Cheltenham. The goal of CyNam is to bring together the best technology minds from local SME’s and Startups to fully harness the rich cyber security ecosystem that flourishes around Cheltenham, the home of the National Technical Authority for Information Security, GCHQ.
InfoSec MD, Chris Dunning-Walton founded the CyNam initiative in 2016 with over 150 people attending our first free event in December. CyNam is now a Community Interest Company with a Board of Directors incorporating technical leaders from the local community, with backing from local and national Government.
The second CyNam event has just taken place with another fantastic turnout and much interest. There will be more ongoing throughout 2017 with the next one on 15 June.
InfoSec People continues to support this exciting initiative as a Headline Sponsor and Board member.
Byte Night - Friday 7 October 2016
Our 2016 dedicated chosen charity was Action for Children which supports the young and vulnerable as they grow up. On Friday 7 October 2016 we participated in Byte Night, the UK’s largest sleep out event which in the last 15 years has raised over £8.4million to tackle the root causes of youth homelessness. Hundreds of volunteers took part across ten UK locations and aimed to raise £1.4million.
InfoSec were delighted to reach our target of £2,500 for Action for Children with thanks going to all our kind sponsors.
