Solving an urgent problem
In 2020, TotallyMoney were receiving support from SEP2 for penetration testing and other tasks. Soon after this successful intervention, TotallyMoney was left with a challenge when their Chief Information Security Officer moved on leaving the role vacant. As a regulated business, the role of a CISO must be always filled. However, as a conscientious business, they recognised that a quick fix could result in employing the wrong individual.
Mark Durrand, Chief Technology Officer already had a good working relationship in place with SEP2 and SEP2 were quick to respond when asked for help, Mark said “We needed to fill the position urgently, and we liked everything we saw.”
Mark says: “We wanted someone we could embed in our team. Someone who understands how we fix vulnerabilities and respond to threats. Paul works like a normal TotallyMoney team member.”
