Cyber-Security Firm Awarded Prestigious Gold Award

Leading Dorset cyber-security company C3IA Solutions has received the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award.

It recognises the firm’s commitment to supporting and advocating for the armed forces and wider defence communities. The company was founded by two former members of the Royal Corps of Signals and has many veterans within its ranks.

Since its foundation it has helped veterans and other members of the armed forces community in a number of ways and continues to work within the defence sector both here and abroad. It has sponsored many military sports teams and other projects, as well as supporting individuals within the armed forces community on a variety of endeavours.

The awards evening was attended by principal consultants Andy Campbell and Laura Midwinter-Brown as well as Managing Director John Botterill.

Andy, who is in his 47th year of military service, said:

“I joined C3IA Solutions because I am very aware of their values and ethos which matches my own. As a largely ex-military cohort, our strength comes from our shared experience, allowing us to understand each other and work well together."

“I am also enjoying the opportunity to work with younger, non-military staff to offer a mentoring relationship. C3IA Solutions offered me a three-day working week which aligns with my Reservist work, so I can commit one-and-a-half days each week supporting Joint Warfare.”

Laura joined C3IA in 2013 after completing 22 years of service in the British Army.

She said: “The company supported my transition from soldier to civilian, and over the last 10 years they have encouraged me to develop and grow my skills."

“I am proud to be part of a company that has a clear commitment to the armed forces and understand the benefits and skills ex-service personnel can bring to any organisation.”

John said: “At C3IA, our team reflects the whole of the armed forces community and the wider defence community, including veterans, reservists and military spouses.

“We value the diverse perspectives and experiences that each member brings. We would like to thank Wessex RFCA and Defence Relationship Management (DRM) for the prestigious award and we look forward to continuing our support in the future.”
