Jamie Frearson joined the Cydea team in 2021 after 5 years working in the engineering sector. Certified in Information Security Management Principles, Jamie works with businesses to identify and strengthen their cyber security posture in an ever-changing digital world.
Autonomous vehicles and their cyber security
They may not be quite like Glen A. Larson depicted them in the 80’s TV series “Knight Rider”, but autonomous vehicles are here.
Startup cyber security requirements
As a startup, it can be overwhelming to know where to start when it comes to cyber security, and the approaches adopted by larger organisations are often not suitable to be applied on a smaller scale as they are both costly and resource intensive.
How we work together
More and more businesses are adopting a hybrid working model, driving the need for collaborative tools to facilitate remote team working.
Why cyber risks should belong to business decision makers and not the IT department
Risk management is an essential part of business. It heavily relies on two things: a way of qualifying/quantifying risks pertaining to a certain area of the business, and a decision being made on the method of treatment for each risk.
Starting a career in the world of cyber security
For the first four years of my professional life I worked as a Development Engineer in the Automotive Engineering industry. It’s been a full year now since I made the decision to change fields to the rapidly expanding industry of Cyber Security, and now feels like a good time to reflect on my journey so far: my background, why I made the jump, and my reflections against what I expected.
