Mehedi Hussain, Apprentice Technical Support Technician, RISCO took part in Security Buyer’s Into the Cloud November Issue
1.What does ‘security’ mean to you?
As a home or business owner, security primarily entails ensuring the safety and well-being of your property, family, and pets. It means having the assurance that when you’re away from your property, you can trust that external threats won’t jeopardise or harm what matters most to you, providing peace of mind.
2.If you could have three people, past or present, to a dinner party, who would it be?
Jimi Hendrix, Dave Chappelle, Georges St Piere
3.What advice would you give somebody looking to enter the field?
Take as much knowledge as you can from those around you and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Every day, I build my knowledge about new technology, the challenges installers face and delivering good customer service.
4.Describe a funny thing that happened to you recently?
I was filling up the washer fluid in my car without any lights on and trapped my finger under the bonnet. It was a scene straight out of Tom and Jerry.
5.What three traits define you?
Resilience, persistence and patience. The last two in particular come in handy in my job, which involves taking calls from customers who contact RISCO for swift, first-line technical help. You have to know your stuff, listen hard to get to the heart of the issue they’re facing and provide clear instructions.
6.What’s the most important trend you see today?
As organisations increasingly adopt cloud-based infrastructure and services, the importance of secure cloud environments cannot be overstated. The primary emphasis must be on deploying strong cloud security measures to guarantee both data integrity and confidentiality.
7.If you didn’t work in the security industry, what would you be doing?
Be working in mechanics; something technical.
8.What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your CV?
I chose engineering at school partly because of the lack of places on other courses. I was hooked immediately.
9.Who is your inspiration?
Elon Musk; an entrepreneur and innovator, driving advancements in space exploration and sustainability.
10.What item would you take to a desert island?
Some sort of navigation as I’m hopeless with directions
