Peta Bunbury, Senior IA Consultant, Atkins


Senior IA Consultant

Business area: ADS&T – IA Security, Technology
Years at Atkins: 6

How is your work taking transportation / infrastructure etc into tomorrow OR how does your work benefit the end user?

I work with customers to help them define their critical information assets, the data which is most important to them to protect in terms of confidentiality, integrity, availability and reputation.   Through implementing a risk assessment, we can determine what their risks are, what their risk appetite is to accepting those risks, and working on a plan to overcome the risks they wish to reduce or remove as best they can. 

What inspired you to become an Information Assurance Consultant? 

I grew into information assurance, as my background was IT for many years.  I worked for a Cisco Value Added Reseller (VAR) and back in 2003 BSI was pushing their security standard BS7799 which became ISO27001. We held conferences with them hand in hand, when the idea struck me I too could become a security consultant.  And I have never looked back!!

Why do you choose to stay at Atkins?

Atkins has a great brand name, and one to be proudly associated.  In addition, Atkins has a pedigree customer portfolio with whom any consultant would enjoy to work.

When have you felt most proud to be an Atkins employee? 

When I found out how much Atkins did to support the 2012 Olympics, it is quite staggering, the company should have received its own Gold Medal.
