With every new joiner to a team, the team dynamic changes. In my experience, there are two types of joiner; Those who sit back and observe and plan their strategy, using what they’ve learned about people and processes in the business Those who hit the ground running, who already have an idea of what they want to implement and can’t wait to get stuck in. Let’s call the first type the observer; while they may seem slower to nudge the needle and make changes, their decisions are informed, strategic, and considerate to others.
I joined Photobox Group Security at the start of May. This is the first in a series of blogs where I’ll detail some of the work I am involved in. It’s been a whirlwind few months at an awesome company and one of the things that continues to excite me about internet companies, is the speed at which we can deliver change. Given the amount of data breaches over the last few years, one of the first things I wanted to discover was how well we were protecting our customer passwords.
Our group of companies provide an incredible service for our customers, we work in a special space for them, helping them create something unique; a snapshot of a time and a place perhaps, the capturing of a memory, the gift that shows someone else how much they care for them. They trust us to be there for them and to protect those magical and intimate moments, it’s something we are proud to take very seriously.
The Photobox Group represents a fantastic opportunity for security professionals who want to make a difference and want to take their ideas to the next level. The security team within Photobox Group is in a really privileged position. We have support from all levels of the organisation: Board CTO Brand owners Even the developers and technologists on the ground Everyone within the group understands that security is important, and that we have to get it right.
