An Exclusive Interview with Saskia Ferreira, Head of IT at Suiderkruis Security

As the Head of IT at Suiderkruis Security, you have a pivotal role in ensuring the safety and security of our clients. Can you tell us a bit about your background and how you got into this field?

My journey into IT and security began at a young age. I was always fascinated by technology and its potential to solve real-world problems. Before joining Suiderkruis Security, I worked for an online marketing company where I gained valuable experience in various aspects of IT and cybersecurity. It’s been a rewarding journey, and I’m passionate about using technology to protect people and businesses.

Outside of your professional life, what are some of your hobbies and interests?

I’m an avid reader and enjoy exploring different genres, from science fiction to historical fiction. I also love hiking and spending time outdoors in open-world games.

What do you think are the biggest security threats facing individuals and businesses today?

One of the biggest threats is the rise of sophisticated cyber-attacks, such as ransomware and phishing schemes. These attacks have become more targeted and harder to detect. Additionally, with the increasing number of smart devices, the Internet of Things (IoT) has introduced new vulnerabilities. Data breaches and identity theft remain significant concerns, as personal information is highly valuable to cybercriminals.

Those are certainly pressing issues. How does Suiderkruis Security help protect clients from these threats?

At Suiderkruis Security, we take a multi-layered approach to security. This includes advanced alarm systems like the Ajax alarm system, which provides real-time monitoring and quick response capabilities. We also offer cybersecurity services to protect our clients’ digital assets. Our team is dedicated to continuous monitoring, threat detection, and providing comprehensive security solutions tailored to each client’s needs.

The Ajax alarm system sounds impressive. Can you highlight some of its key features and benefits?

Absolutely. The Ajax alarm system is known for its cutting-edge technology and reliability. Key features include wireless communication, easy installation, and a user-friendly mobile app that allows for remote monitoring and control. The system includes a variety of sensors, such as motion detectors, door/window sensors, and glass break detectors, all designed to provide comprehensive protection. Its intelligent detection algorithms reduce false alarms, and the system’s encrypted communication ensures it is secure against hacking attempts.

It’s clear that the Ajax system offers robust security. On a more personal note, what motivates you in your work at Suiderkruis Security?

My motivation comes from knowing that we are making a tangible difference in people’s lives. Security is a fundamental need, and being able to provide peace of mind to our clients is incredibly rewarding. I’m driven by the challenge of staying ahead of emerging threats and continuously improving our security solutions. Additionally, working with a dedicated team that shares the same passion for security makes every day fulfilling.

What advice would you give to individuals looking to enhance their personal security, both online and offline?

For online security, I recommend using strong, unique passwords for different accounts and enabling two-factor authentication wherever possible. Be cautious of unsolicited emails and links, and keep your software updated to protect against vulnerabilities. For offline security, invest in a reliable alarm system, be aware of your surroundings, and build good relationships with your neighbors. Always trust your instincts and don’t hesitate to seek professional security advice if needed.
