Andy Cuff, our CEO, followed in his father's and grandfather's footsteps and joined the British military. Andy now has over 38 years of military service, serving in both the RAF (L Tech TC) and the Army (Royal Signals), in both both Regular and Cyber Reserves, working his way up the ranks from non-commissioned to commissioned
Andy said: “We recognise the valuable skills, professionalism and dedication that service leavers can bring to industry and especially within cyber security.
“We are all incredibly proud to have been awarded the ERS Silver Award and we’re committed to continuing our support for the defence community.”
The Lord-Lieutenant of Somerset, Mrs Anne Maw, is pictured above presenting Andy with the award and said: “It is vitally important that we look after those who are serving, and have served, in our armed forces.
“CND is a company that is absolutely dedicated to supporting these personnel and it was a pleasure to meet Andy and present him with the award.”
Jeff Ames, our Chief Technology Officer, a former RAF SNCO of 22 years’ service, said: “Service personnel are a known commodity, they not only have a great deal of integrity, reliability and professionalism but they are also extremely well trained and can quickly adapt to any situation or requirement.”
We employ reservists as members of staff, offering a number of incentives such as paid leave to help their staff fulfil their reserve commitment and flexibility to attend training. These reservists have also been mobilised for active service on a number of occasions.
