As part of our graduate scheme, Celerity has introduced new staff members into our team. These talented, high potential employees bring fresh ideas and skills into our business, and we can't wait to help them to develop their cyber security expertise. We thought we'd next get to know our new Security Operations Centre Analyst, Mahmoud Lofty!
What were you doing before you joined Celerity?
I was studying at university.
How have you settled in?
Very well. It's quite a busy time at the SOC I believe, so I am starting to be occupied which is really positive so early on. I'm starting to feel like a bigger part of the team everyday and an effective addition.
What is the best part/most exciting part about working for Celerity?
Having had support from my colleagues since day 1. Phishing campaigns sound like they will be very interesting as well.
What do you think is your biggest strength?
Perseverance and hard work. A desire to try and understand and learn as much as possible.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I enjoy making YouTube videos and watching martial arts videos. I take care of my health in general by learning about nutrition and sports.
What is your idea of the perfect holiday?
Sceneries, swimming, adventures, good halal food, including good desserts and coffee!
If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
Superspeed. To be able to travel back home in a weekend and come back on time.
