Meet the Team: Anthony Addison

Meet Anthony!

I grew up in the mountains of Georgia and spent most of my days exploring the woods or working on cars. After high school I started working in the IT industry doing support for SaaS companies and quickly found a love for working in technology. I later went on to obtain my bachelors in Cyber Security and began working with NIST compliance in higher education.

Tell us a surprising fact about yourself…

I love cars and enjoy building them as a hobby. I have built two cars that were featured in SEMA which is one of the biggest car shows in the world.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

If I could have a super power it would be super speed because I would love to be able to do more things and go more places in a day.

What are some things you enjoy doing outside of work?

My favorite things to do outside of work are going to the beach with my family and attending car shows.

Tell us about your role at Rhymetec…

I have been at Rhymetec for 7 months and I love getting to work with new clients and helping them navigate their compliance journey. Anthony Addison Meet the Team

Why did you pursue a career in the cybersecurity industry?

I pursued a career in cyber security because I have always wanted to do something that helped people. With my love of technology and solving puzzles, Cybersecurity is a great place for me to help people avoid disasters and grow their business. 

What is your favorite part about working at Rhymetec, or in the cybersecurity industry?

My favorite part of working at Rhymetec is working for a company that is focused on helping me grow as a person and in my cybersecurity career. Rhymetec works hard to provide new training and expose me to new challenges while ensuring a healthy work life balance.

What is your favorite quote or the best advice you have ever received?

The best advice I have ever received was from my manager at my first job when I was 15. He told me repeatedly that the smallest jobs can have the biggest impact. This is something I didn’t understand till much later, at the time I thought he just wanted the floor mopped. I have since learned that what he was trying to tell me is that people may not see the floor being mopped or even think to thank the person that did it but the impact that a clean floor has on a business is massive. No one wants to shop at a store with a dirty floor.  

From a security or compliance perspective, what advice would you give to a potential client or SaaS business?

Compliance is not about a set of checkboxes needed to increase sales. Compliance is about creating repeatable processes and procedures that will help increase the overall security of a business. The focus should not be solely on obtaining but also ensuring the ability to maintain.
