"What I like about Accenture is that it is a modern and open company with lots of exciting opportunities for development. But what really sets it apart for me is the people, all the amazing colleagues you get to work with."

How I put change in motion

As Information Security Consultant, I get to work with people at all levels of the organization from the floor level and up, helping securing different environments and landscapes with Identity and Access Management, logging and monitoring, policies, making sure that law and regulatory requirements like GDPR and PCI are implemented and followed in the correct manner. Put differently, I make large organizations and regular peoples’ experiences secure. Juggling what is good enough for now, while keeping future threats and challenges in mind as well makes the job challenging and interesting.

The most exciting project I have worked on was a global e-commerce solution for a retailer. That in itself was exciting but the increased reliance on e-com during 2020 made it even more exciting and scary. It felt like we really made a crucial difference for our client.

A day in my life

My day usually starts with a daily stand-up with the team, a mix of Accenture and client security professionals. The day can go in many different directions after that, as we work with other teams in different disciplines from developers, testers, administrators to specialist in different subjects where we support with our skills within information security.

We work with PCI, GDPR, and other security requirements, supporting everything from tools in stores to backend systems, databases and the like as well as supporting moving resources from on-premises to cloud environments. We work closely with other security teams in operations, tooling, networking, and cloud security. New technologies and cross-competence collaboration between teams are part of the daily business.

What I like about Accenture is that it is a modern and open company with lots of exciting opportunities for development. But what really sets it apart for me is the people, all the amazing colleagues you get to work with. People with different backgrounds, nationalities, cultures, and so on. The brightest and most helpful people you will probably ever get to know. I have never felt so welcome at a workplace as when I started at Accenture.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also play both video and boardgames (sometimes with Accenture Play) as well as nerding out on series and films.

My advice

Never be afraid to try different paths, ways of working, or technologies as you can find an interest in the most surprising areas of security. You can be both an expert and a generalist at the same time.

Security as a field is constantly evolving, what was good enough a fortnight ago might next week be a weakness at the same time as a general mindset might be effectful for years. Remember that security lives both in the small details as well as in the big picture. That makes it really exciting.
