Thank you for attending the opening of our new A’dam office
Thank you for helping us celebrate the opening of our new Amsterdam office. We appreciate the time that all the attendees - clients, friends and all (new) Secura staff members - took to visit and celebrate with us.
As we enter a new phase in our journey that already resulted in a new board of directors, a new name to reflect our new position in the market and a clear vision on how to control all aspects of digital security, the open house party of last Thursday 30 November was an excellent moment to inform and to connect in an informal setting.
We proudly presented our story and ambitions and gave some interactive demos on hacking with a drone, XSS and the much discussed GDPR. This combined with bubbles and bites was a perfect way to catch-up and celebrate.
In the past 17 years we have operated from one office located in Eindhoven. This is where the roots of our company lie: hacking at the TU/e for accounts, computer time and access to the internet.
Eindhoven has proven to be a great place to be located: near the university with talented young people and high-tech companies in the neighbourhood. We are proud to have started there and to have grown to where we are now.
A new office in the “Randstad”
We serve a lot of clients in the southern part of the Netherlands (in the provinces "Brabant” and “Limburg") but over the years our client base expanded rapidly and it comes as no surprise that the majority of our clients have offices in the Randstad.
Several of our assignments can be done remote, but many also require physical presence. These assignments were performed by our consultants living near Eindhoven or even deep south in Limburg. The daily commute to the Randstad has proven to be quite a challenge. This nice new office in Amsterdam-Zuid - with great lunch facilities btw! - helps our company in many ways:
- It reduces travelling time of our consultants and reduces our CO2 footprint;
- We are able to attract a lot of talented people that live in the Randstad (and did not want to work for us before because of the distance to our Eindhoven office). It already has been proven to be effective as we have already hired more than 10 people living in the Randstad. This is also one of the main reasons we have changed our company language to English to attract foreign talent as well as to serve foreign clients better.
- And last but not least: With this office we can better serve our customers in the Randstad (some of which are very close by now).
I was getting to feel guilty every time a large and interesting project was sold in the Randstad, and that doesn't feel good for me as a commercial director! – Remco Huisman
