How I put change in motion

As a cybersecurity pro, I run security penetration testing, manage quality assurance, oversee capability development and implement cybersecurity solutions for businesses, helping them build resilience against threats.

What’s the high point of working at Accenture? I have got opportunities to work on many niche and unique technologies that helped me sharpen my penetration testing skills. One of the most interesting tasks was to lead and execute the security penetration testing of an IoT-enabled architecture for a US-based water purification company. The work scope included conducting cloud penetration testing, serverless functions penetration testing and cloud configuration review. The goal? To understand existing threats and vulnerabilities in applications and design issues in their architecture. The impact? We helped the client build resilience against attackers. Through this journey, I thoroughly enjoyed learning about cutting-edge technologies such as cloud and serverless functions to build a new penetration capability. All the while helping Accenture build future readiness in serverless functions penetration testing and include it in our offerings.

A day in my life

For me, every day presents a new challenge and a new possibility to solve the challenge. Here’s how my average day goes—I interact with clients across the globe to understand their security architecture and propose cybersecurity offerings to strengthen their application and infrastructure. You’ll find me identifying the scope of work for client-centric architectures, crafting proposal decks unique to their requirements and supporting my teams in executing penetration testing activities. I love to explore trending technologies and build a penetrating testing methodology around them.

Every day, I dedicate time to learning what’s trending in the cybersecurity space. I also take training sessions on penetration testing for colleagues under the learning and knowledge management (LKM) program.

In my leisure time, I like to experiment in the kitchen and engage in fun activities with my son. You can also find me playing video games, watching the latest thrillers with my wife and gardening.

My advice

Hunger for learning is critical. So, keep yourself updated with new technologies. Contributing back to the community is equally important, keep researching and publishing your research on opensource forums. Every effort counts; together, we can build a more secure and resilient world.
