Getting to Know Tomasz Ksiazkiewicz
In honor of tomorrow being National Intern Day, here at CyberArmed, we are happy to celebrate with our awesome PKI Intern Tomasz Ksiazkiewicz. I interviewed Tomasz to learn more about him as well as to learn how he feels about the growing security industry.
Hey Tomasz, can you please start off by telling us about yourself?
I'm originally from Poland, and I moved here 8 years ago in pursuit of better education and life. I am currently taking my last course at Marymount University, which is this internship class in order to finish my degree in Information Technology specializing in Cybersecurity and Networking. I am the PKI Intern here at CyberArmed.
What made you choose this career path?
My father introduced me to the technology growing up, he was always interested in working with computers and other devices. This got me into working with technology. After exploring the different things computers are capable of doing, I realize this is something that I wanted more knowledge on and ultimately make this my career.
What is an average day like interning at CyberArmed?
Before coming into the office each morning, I receive an email from Greg outlining the duties and tasks for the day. Once I read over the instructions, I ask for clarification if I have questions. Because we are a small company, I find that each day varies. A typical day might be helping to improve the quality and usability of software products. I use my expertise to find potential issues as well as make recommendations for improvements. Once I find the issues, we all work together to ensure the software is updated and improved. I also do research on new security technologies that can be implemented for our customers to make their operations more efficient secure. Then I typically will be writing and researching for the blogs, I recently wrote about PKI and next week I will be writing about blockchain technology. If there are any conference calls with clients or partners, I will attend and participate those. As well as all of the above, I also test installation and help make improvements and learn how to set up the company system’s infrastructure.
What is your favorite part about interning at CyberArmed?
I really like our office at MakeOffices Clarendon. As well as my coworkers, and supervisor. I feel that I am a team player and feel that my opinion actually matters makes an impact.
