My future is staying one step ahead
Now that we all rely on online channels for so much, cyber security has become a vital and ever changing field. My job is to make sure that Telstra infrastructures and those belonging to client companies are protected against online threats that can shut down their services.
The work I do helps organisations to protect not just their revenue and intellectual property, but also their brand and reputation. I proactively monitor networks for threats and analyse traffic for anything suspicious. It’s up to me to identify risks quickly and defend against threats by providing a fast, effective response or recovery. I also provide assistance on security prosecution.
As a security expert, security awareness is something I am very passionate about. I take every opportunity to share information on the latest attempts and attack methods across the organisation. And I often find myself giving informal security sessions to friends and family!
Working at Telstra means working at the forefront of technology but also enjoying a lot of fun and flexibility.
What I particularly love about my current role is how you can learn things from different teams across different organisational units.
Growing my knowledge and skills is something really motivates me and I am eager to experience the challenges Telstra offers as a global organisation. I’ll be looking for opportunities to develop my career by working on larger projects, managing a project or people, working with clients and hopefully getting some international experience too.
