Never ones to shy away from endorsing employees, we’re thrilled that our CISO is a finalist in Computing’s inaugural Rising Star Awards.
These new awards celebrate the best new IT talent in the UK, and the sector’s future leaders. Not about young versus old; they are about shining a spotlight on the success of those at the beginning of their career.
Nominated as a rising star of the year for large organisations, Kate Dadlani joined Logicalis UK two years ago as a Security Manager. She’s now our CISO, has completed our European High Potential Programme and has numerous new certifications to her name. Kate is bridging the gap between the business and our leadership team and is excelling at maintaining the organisations focus on security. Mark Lewis, Logicalis FD said “Kate is full of energy and highly motivated to protect Logicalis. She is doing a fantastic job of creating a security-conscious culture throughout the business. This not only supports us and our customers, but the fresh thinking she brings to security-based activities also helps her colleagues outside of work.”
Kate told us “I always knew I wanted to work in technology and that I wanted to excel in my career, but I didn’t always have a clear vision of how I was going to get there! So, my approach is to utilise every experience I encounter to identify elements of roles that I enjoy and want to pursue – Logicalis is giving plenty of opportunities to hone my skills, take on responsibility and make a lasting impact relatively early in my career.”
Congratulations to Kate, and indeed all the finalists, we’re looking forward to hearing your stories at the award ceremony on Wednesday 9 October in London.
