Colum describes life as a graduate in Integrity360 from his experience

I first joined Integrity360 as an intern in January 2015 for my college workplacement, I studied Computer Forensics & Security in Waterford Institute of Technology. The opportunity arose when I met Sarah Cullen the HR manager at the IRISS-CERT conference in Dublin in November 2014. Sarah offered me a chance to come interview for a postion with the company. After completing the interview I was offered a postion in the company, I was delighted to be given the opportunity. 

When I first arrived I was unsure of what the company was going to be like and what I was going to be doing. All of the staff were so welcoming upon arriving they more than exceeded my expectations. It didn’t take long to get to know everyone in the company and they were always available to provide support. During my time spent there I learned so much with great exposure to cutting edge technologies my knowledge base grew vastly while working for Ireland’s leading Managed Security provider. Everyday I looked forward to going to work. Being an intern I was never treated any different to any member of staff I felt at home. 

Working in the Security Operations Center allowed me to work with highly skilled engineers which were always available to provide assistance if needed. Everyday was a new challenge which was exciting because I learned obtained new skills. My time spent working for integrity was outstanding, I couldn’t wait to return as a graduate.
