Catching Up With… Dan Hathaway from Secure Source
Where are you based?
We are very fortunate to have the Ground Floor of 3 Barnfield Crescent, Southernhay, one of the best buildings in Exeter.
Can you tell us a bit about your business?
We’re Recruiters within the Cyber Security market. We assist candidates within Cyber Security to find employers and assist companies that are looking for Cyber Security professionals by listening to what they need and finding the right individuals. We have a team of skilled Search Consultants and leverage cutting edge technology to enable us to assist clients and candidates. We are Cyber Essentials certified and all our consultants are specialists in their arenas.
Do you think Exeter is lacking anything?
When I first moved here I’d have had a lot more to say, but with the food halls, Apple, IKEA on the way we’re not far off. I’d like to see more entertainment here and a couple of more high-quality city pubs. I’d also like to see an earlier train up to London.
What is your biggest weakness?
If you ruled the world for a day, name one thing that you would do?
Move the entire world to clean energy.
What is a highlight that you have achieved in your business?
There are a few, being recognised as a key supplier for some of the world’s largest and most successful companies is definitely up there, along with representing UK Cyber with UKTI in Vienna and The Hague. Also, being a founder member of CERIS (the Confederation of Ethical Recruiters in Information Security). I derive more pleasure from our staff progression and the business growing.
Do you have a favourite quote?
“There is no try, only do – Yoda”
What type of people do you place?
Anyone that is involved within Information Security/Cyber Security. We place everyone from technical graduates to global CISO’s.
What type of companies do you recruit for?
Anyone that has a need for their data and systems to be protected. We work with Global Investment Banks, highly security cleared facilities, Consultancies and other sectors such as online betting, gaming…the list goes on. Increasingly we have undertaken a lot of roles with SME’s that are looking to hire their first Information Security person and assist in advising them what they should be looking for against their individual requirements. I enjoy working closely with companies and assisting them to find people who can help them with challenges.
