Meet Aditi Ramachandran
Can you tell us a little bit about your background?
I have been working in cyber security for over a decade and predominantly in consulting/auditing. I provide information assurance to clients across several sectors (aviation, energy, insurance, banking, retail, to name a few) to help mitigate security risks they face, both technical and governance-related. I have worked as a security consultant in cyber security, performing information security assessments, managing security-related projects, electronic discovery, risk management and governance.
What made you choose to join 6point6?
I chose 6point6 because having worked in larger organisations, it was a refreshing change to be a part of an organisation that focused on its people. For me, this was an opportunity to contribute to a growing company.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I like how one day is not like the other. Broadly, everything I do is to ensure that the products and services developed by our clients are thoroughly risk assessed. This involves liaising with various stakeholders, understanding solution designs, architecture and discovering threats and vulnerabilities. Finally, I’ll determine the best-suited approach to help manage the project and enterprise risk.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to work in Cyber Security?
Take the leap. There is a steep learning curve but once you cross that bridge, the rest comes naturally. Cyber security offers a very engaging and rewarding career path with a wide range of opportunities for growth and specialisation. It is also a constantly evolving field where you must learn on-the-go and hone your skills. There is always something to learn and new challenges to tackle every day.
