MTI’s Head of Penetration Testing, Mark Harrison was awarded the ‘Penetration Tester of the Year’ at the recent Cyber Security Awards, an independent event where winning applicants are selected based on excellence and merit alone.
The winners were announced at a black-tie event at the Park Plaza Hotel in Victoria, London and having been shortlisted in the Penetration Tester of the Year category, MTI’s Mark Harrison walked away triumphant.
Mark has over 18 years’ technical experience and holds a life-long CREST Fellowship award in recognition for his services to the IT security industry. A member of the technical advisory board that founded the CREST, Mark currently leads a large team of hand-picked and highly skilled Penetration Testers, dedicated to helping public and private sector organisations withstand cyber-attacks.
Heading up the Penetration Testing department allows Mark to fulfil a personal ambition of recruiting young people straight from university, who would struggle to break into the IT security industry and training them up to be CREST and CHECK level testers.
This award comes at a time of great success for MTI, with the company having recently achieved a Dell Partner Services Quality Award, recognising its expertise and dedication to customer success across regions throughout the EMEA.
