Miriam Fahim

Application Security Specialist

London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) - Financial Services Infrastructure Company

I started on the Technology Graduate program and rotated around the business for a year. My current team works closely with software development teams to make sure applications are built securely and follow best practices for protecting against cyber attacks.

I love working in a global team and learning about all the software development teams across the business! I'm also learning a lot through different training opportunities.

I usually start with messages and emails and then create a to-do list for the day. Tasks are a mix of focusing on the tickets assigned to me by other software development teams and working on the team's long-term goals with my manager.

I completed a Civil Engineering degree and earned a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from UCL. During my final year, I started working on an app with some developers and loved the process of working in a technology team. I love how fast things change and how much you can learn in such a short period of time.

I hope to continue to grow professionally by widening my skills through certifications and training. I hope to become a leader in tech one day.

I love to paint, exercise, read, and play games! I also enjoy entertaining friends and family.
