A day in my life
As a security analyst, I assist in large and complex client transformation projects by providing strategic advice and solutions for securing the enterprise. To do so, I utilize an array of technologies which include database activity monitoring, cloud distributed denial-of-service, web application firewall, and security information and event management.
My end goal is to help clients thrive by being cyber-resilient. Hence, I dive into the nuts and bolts of aligning security strategies with their enterprise, making sure the solutions we create and implement match the client’s type of business and needs.
My work can take long hours, which makes a strategic approach very important. To ensure my productivity, I use my ability to prioritize to drive action on the most impactful tasks and activities of my day or week. I also like to take advantage of our flexible work option to achieve a healthy work-life balance.
I shift gears now and then, going on trainings that bring me into contact with IT practitioners from Accenture’s vast network of partners. These drive me to grow and expand my capacity to innovate in cybersecurity. I love to seek out new avenues and opportunities to get creative. For instance, I actively participate in Accenture’s annual innovation challenge where I help identify solutions to enable companies to automate security.
For fun and bonding, I often hang out with my colleagues, who are easygoing people who never hesitate to lend a helping hand when you need it. We play a game of futsal every week, which is great because I get to enjoy their company while indulging my love for soccer!
