Senior Java Developer, JP Morgan
Chris did a wonderful job of securing a position for me at the company I wanted to work for. The process took longer than usual with a few bumps in the road, but Chris kept me informed and kept pushing things forward all the way to completion. 10/10 as a professional and a person.
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.
