The company delivers information intelligence solutions to government and commercial customers and develops solutions to strengthen national security and resilience.
The Australian Information Security Association (AISA) is the largest non-profit industry body for the information security profession in Australia. Formed in 1999, AISA aims to foster and promote the development of the information security industry and encourage the professional development of its members.
Richard Watson, managing director of BAE Systems Detica, Asia Pacific and the Middle East said:
“It is great to be acknowledged as an employer of choice for the second year in a row. BAE Systems Detica is the largest information security practice in Australia with over 200 specialist employees. The business continues to invest in its capabilities and people. For example employees are given $5,000 and five days off per year towards professional development. The company also holds dedicated research days and runs a range of in-house training sessions.”
BAE Systems Detica also won a second award at the ceremony. Christina Camilleri, associate consultant, security testing at BAE Systems Detica was announced Information Security Rookie of the Year.
Richard Watson said: “This is great recognition of Christina’s work and contribution to the information security industry, so early on in her working life. She demonstrated her passion for the industry by attending conferences and participating in social engineering competitions while still at high school and in her first year-and-a-half at university. Christina has already made a massive contribution to the team at BAE Systems Detica and it is obvious to her clients and colleagues that she has a very promising career ahead of her in the information security industry.
