As Data Administrator, I'm responsible for the integrity and development of our databases. I ensure all our information is consistent across our data networks and maintained to our high standards. As a former copy editor and teacher, I have a passion for words and learning. I also have a particular eye for detail – I've previously been dubbed the QC queen and the pixel police.
Security tip: Screens are like doors – deter intruders by locking devices (such as laptops and mobiles), to protect systems and information.
From customer service, social media, project coordination to account management, my work background has been very varied to say the least. I have utilised and improved my organisation skills throughout all my roles. As SASIG Administrator, I use my keen eye for detail in coordinating the smooth running of events. I’m extremely goal-orientated and people focused, except for my time spent talking about my dogs and especially when Doris, the office dog, comes to visit and requires a lap cushion.
Security tip: Be mindful to use encrypted websites; look for the green padlock next to the web address to ensure that your data and passwords remain safe, especially when you’re on the move.
I am responsible for the operation of our exciting SASIG events, including coordinating the high-quality speakers the conferences attract. I bring substantial project and account management experience to my new role. It's great how we enable the conversation on security between world-leading organisations, developing our events in an ever-changing and increasingly digital world.
Security tip: Security tip: (Clear desk, clear screen) Ctrl + Alt + Delete followed by ‘lock screen’ works a treat for security.
Chief Snack Supervisor
As chief snack supervisor I tend to make myself known whenever food is present. My parents are the founders, so I pretty much have free rein of the office, which allows me to investigate any smells and potential snacks. If I am not visible, it is usually because I am sitting by Nadia’s feet supervising fallen crisps.
Security tip: Never leave your lunch unattended, you never know who will be sniffing around to snap it up!
Project Launch Assistant
Assisting in the planning and execution of one of SASIG’s latest inventions, the Cyber Skills Festival. SASIG has provided me with a unique opportunity to be part of such a momentous event, working alongside the amazing team that is SASIG. Having recently graduated with a Masters in Civil and Coastal Engineering. However seemingly irrelevant this may seem, I have gained and developed many transferable skills, adding to the SASIG team. I hope that I am proving that all skills and experiences can be relevant, whilst I undoubtedly will be learning and developing new skills.
Security tip: Using a password manager like LastPass or Dashlane lets you set complex random passwords for every site you use, and fills them in automatically when you log in, saving time and making you more secure.
As co-founder, I am passionate about setting our strategic direction so it can continue to grow. I have worked in every part of our business over the years, and every day brings a new challenge, so our amazing people have to be on their toes.
Security tip: Security tip: If you work whilst on holiday, ensure you secure your devices and information at all times, as you never know who might be watching.
My role is simple, to look after the SASIG community and act in its best interest, and make more community wherever possible. The SASIG is more than an events company, it's a movement and a network of thousands of security professionals and their friends. The SASIG really is something special, watching it grow over the last two decades has been a privilege, more so being the family business. To get to where we are with our core values and principles still intact is a is unique, we are a unicorn in the industry, my job is to keep it that way.
Security tip: You should never need to give out personal information to someone who calls you. Find the phone number you need online and call them back.
Chairman and Founder
I predominantly spend my time chairing our dedicated security awareness events for cybersecurity professionals. When I began in the industry, I would not have believed the exciting, stimulating (and, on occasion, frightening) adventure I had embarked upon. I am beyond words when I look around at our team and all we have achieved for and with our fabulous community.
Security tip: Security tip: Just like shoulder surfers, eavesdroppers can steal information silently. Do not discuss sensitive information if there is a chance of being overheard.
My main responsibility is to coordinate our SASIG events. I have worked in the events industry since studying Events Management at university and have never looked back. I love the challenge and diversity of SASIG as no two events are ever the same. Organisation is my strongest skill, and I am determined to ensure that every event runs like clockwork.
Security tip: Remember to set strong PINs or passwords and check your settings to make sure that Siri or Google Assistant cannot be activated on the lock screen. Leaving your phone unlocked allows anyone to access your email and social media accounts, and call premium-rate numbers.
I am responsible for the day to day running of SASIG. From event planning to social media, marketing to design. I have gained a variety of experience from previous roles, and the SASIG environment lets me use all these along with developing new skills. I thrive on organising SASIG events and feel privileged to work at and attend fascinating security events attended and hosted by the industry’s best. I love to travel and music is my greatest passion outside of work.
Security tip: Keep your software up to date. Installing software updates for your operating system and programs is critical. Always install the latest security updates for your devices.
