Management Consultant

"At Accenture, I work with numerous clients across several industries and multiple business areas. I find it extremely rewarding to immerse myself completely in key sectors like consumer goods, real estate and public transportation. Having the support of my colleagues makes my job so much easier as well."

What I do

I help clients identify security gaps, recommend fit-for-purpose solutions and assist them with implementation. I handle different projects spanning various operating groups and work closely with other departments.

Security is the supporting pillar that allows businesses to grow with the confidence that its core processes are free from the threat of interruption due to system or data breaches. During times of crisis like a malware breakout, I ‘helicopter’ in and investigate the root cause of the security breaches, remediate the problem, help the client resume regular business operation and make recommendations to better secure their organization in the future.

A day in my life

As a consultant, my days vary depending on my projects. For instance, I spent this morning at a client office to share our daily project progress updates. I then arranged meetings to move urgent tasks forward and made time to catch up on the latest security news.

After lunch with my colleagues, I demonstrated the security architecture design and test scope we had planned to the client. Then, I prepared a deck proposing a solution for their cloud integration issues.

Following a Skype call with a service provider to discuss and confirm penetration testing requirement for the client, I took a call with Accenture Security in the US to compare notes and gather insights from a recently completed product integration.

One of the most exciting projects I’ve had was for a global oil and gas company. Our project team was made up of seven men and women from five different countries and every brainstorming session saw us challenging each other’s ideas in the best possible way.

Working closely with this client, our team conducted a three-day workshop in India to better understand their business needs in the context of the current security landscape. We then crafted a future-focused security operating model that supported the company’s business vision and digital transformation securely.

Not only did this generate positive feedback from the client; the team also ended up spinning off a couple more large-scale security projects that would further propel their company on their digital journey.

One thing I really like about Accenture is the people. Accenture people are not only smart and innovative, but they are also business-minded and team players. I’ve made a lot of good friends here who are both talented and generous with their knowledge. Whenever I have a question, I have a huge global community of experienced colleagues who are always willing to help me out. I know that the answer to my question is just one ‘ping’ away.

To decompress from my full work week, my friends and I spend weekends hiking in natural reserves, mountains or islands. Sometimes we will have picnics or fly kites. When I am alone, I love to stroll in the park or take a walk near Kallang River. Being close to nature makes me feel refreshed.

"Accenture lets me work on project-based engagement and consistently exposes me to cutting-edge technologies. I am always learning new things and am never stuck doing the same task for too long."

My advice

Be willing to learn and be excited about new things. Security is a very niche and complex domain that is ever-evolving. You need to constantly sharpen your skills and adopt new tools and systems that emerge in the security field.
