With the level of instant connectivity and collaboration required to keep Caterpillar at the forefront of the industry, it’s a requirement to have the tools necessary to support this demand. What many don’t realize is the level of complexity this adds when securing systems. To keep our teams always connected and innovating, cybersecurity teams are hard at work implementing security tools to keep Team Caterpillar safe and their work secured.
Christa, cybersecurity analyst, identifies and prevents cyber threats and attacks on everything from Caterpillar’s people to the products we sell. These threats can range from the everyday amateur attacks to persistent threats from those attempting to steal intellectual property or data.
No, she is not a character out of your favorite cyber thriller movie. Rather, Christa is part of a critical team that works hard to keep the enterprise secure so employees around the world can focus on developing the best products and solutions.
This work does not happen in a silo. Rather, it is a collaborative effort between teams across the enterprise. This work is perhaps more important now than ever as many members of Team Caterpillar are working remotely due to the global pandemic. Christa says, “The everyday employee’s ability to open up a laptop, log in and start working securely is a direct result of collaboration from IT and cybersecurity teams across the enterprise.” It is this teamwork that sets the foundation for employees like Jason to begin their focus.
As a senior cloud solution architect, Jason is focused on enterprise cloud strategy, architecture and adoption to serve employees across multiple verticals. Through his work, Jason can customize the cloud solution that is needed for teams to collaborate, innovate and test out ideas.
At Caterpillar, it is critical for the members of IT and Cybersecurity teams to be agile, innovative and solutions driven. Jason shares that his teammates are “visionary people” who are not afraid to push the envelope. With hard work comes great opportunity, regardless of how new to Caterpillar the employee might be. “We have several new IT professionals on our team that have quickly become our go to problem solvers and innovators. Their unrelenting drive has put them in position of being selected often on critical projects across Caterpillar.”
