I love working in IT. It’s fast, diverse and always changing. But the thing I love most about the industry is that it’s like the world’s biggest puzzle. It just keeps growing so you need to be highly innovative to evolve effective solutions.
I’ve been with The Missing Link since 2013, initially as Security Director and since 2017 as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). In this capacity I lead our Security division across sales, architecture, service delivery, engineering and operations. It’s also my job to protect our own company, our staff and digital assets, and to ensure we strive to meet the highest standards possible.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy travelling with my wife and children, especially when there’s an international destination involved, and even more so when I get to do some scuba diving. Back at home, my favourite gadget is a Pioneer XDJ Aero DJ deck – DJing Progressive House tunes is a rare but much-loved past-time.
I believe self-reflection is the key to fulfilment and success. As Confucius said, “If you see a worthy person, then endeavour to emulate them. If you see an unworthy person, then examine your inner self”.
