Cybersecurity firm Secarma has named an ex-military cybersecurity expert Holly Williams as technical director, in a bid to bolster its growing cloud security division.
The board-level role will Williams head up the technical development and direction of the company’s 40-strong team of penetration testers and senior management.
She previously served for five years as a site security officer with the British armed forces, overseeing the installation, maintenance and decommissioning of secure communications systems, including a seven-month deployment in Afghanistan.
Backed by technology entrepreneurs Lawrence and Gail Jones, Secarma specialises in penetration testing, cloud security, red teaming and Cyber Essentials certification.
“Cloud security is a major focus – especially for businesses operating multi-cloud or hybrid IT architectures,” Williams said. “Our specialist penetration testers are experts across the major cloud platforms, including AWS, Azure and eCloud. For organisations adopting a multi-cloud approach it's an amazing resource to be able to tap into those skillsets and provide a level of assurance over their platform security.”
Secarma is based in Manchester.
