I AM KIVU
As a member of the MSS team here at Kivu, the most rewarding aspect of the job is making a meaningful difference with the services that we provide. Many of our clients come to us in a time of crisis, and nothing beats the feeling that you get when you prevent another catastrophic event from occurring within their network.
This is my first job in the cyber security field but not my first in IT, so I was nervous coming in. But I’ve gotten help every step of the way to learn all the tools and procedures needed to get the job done. I also look forward to not only having a job for years to come at Kivu but also a career here that I can be proud of. Thank you, Kivu, for giving me a chance and being such an amazing place to work.
Having the opportunity to work with people who really have their skills down and are willing to help new people has been amazing. I can't speak to past management, but from what I've seen under the new management, things are not only great for employees, but the company is absolutely heading in the right direction now. I love the leadership on the MSS team, both for their honesty with team members, and their constant encouragement and support for individual growth. They take input from the team, and if someone has a good idea, they run with it. HUGE breath of fresh air! I hope to be with the company for quite some time to come!
Pursue the work that you love and partner with individuals who share the same passion. Show up every day with a good attitude, good work ethic and treat people with respect and kindness. When you do those things, you will find a sense of belonging, accomplishment, and value.
We don't sell security tools here - our clients could easily go directly to the vendor for that. What we offer is a skilled 24 X 7 team to monitor for and act upon suspicious and malicious activity. We handle the security and monitoring of your network, so that you can focus on where the rubber meets the road -- your revenue-generating business operations.
I love working at Kivu because I get great support and the opportunity to step outside my comfort zone and work on a variety of exciting initiatives that allows me to engage with all the wonderful people across the company.
