"Cyber espionage is an incredible challenge—one that requires passion for what you do. It also offers major opportunities."

What I do

As part of the Cyber Espionage team, I am a malware analyst or reverse engineer for a threat intelligence provider under Accenture Security. The Cyber Espionage team specializes in advanced threats, namely advanced persistent threat of nation-state-sponsored malicious cyber-activities. My team members and I create alerts, events and other written articles or indicator pieces for the client to use to protect themselves.

This is a field where people of many walks of life converge. I’ve worked with coworkers who obtained degrees in completely different fields, as well as members of our military, who all ended up in this field doing amazing jobs. I’ve also worked with others who followed a similar path as mine, working with computers and cybersecurity from college to professional career.

A day in my life

One of my favorite projects was an intelligence opportunity, for which we put together a timeline and mapping of one of our threat groups, and their current operations and malware. This project was fun because it involved the use of several of our resources and things clicking together. We were able to release intelligence that other groups had not put out that assisted in setting Accenture Security apart. We also presented this information at two conferences: Anomali Detect, as well as the annual Accenture iDefense Trusted Partner Summit.

One of the things I love about Accenture is the value placed on diversity. As a female in a male-dominated field, this is important to me. I believe in achieving diversity where possible, without compromising quality. I believe Accenture’s promotion of diversity assists with empowering the right women for the job to become part of the team. Accenture’s sponsoring of women in information security is very evident and allows for women in the field, or any field, to feel included and represented.

My favorite thing to do outside of work is play with my two-year-old son. I also enjoy watching NFL football, doing escape rooms with friends and family, as well as playing board games and card games.

“As a female in a male-dominated field, I love Accenture’s value on diversity.”

My advice

Be prepared to never stop learning. This field is ever-growing and as soon as you learn something, something new comes along. It is what makes this field amazing and sometimes exhausting. For this reason, if you have passion for this field, you’ll go far. If you love what you do and it excites you, the rest comes with time. Another tip I’d give is never be satisfied if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing. One of the best things about this field, beyond its growth, is the multitude of job functions available.

Try new things and then once you find your niche, go as far as you can with it. I started in information assurance and it wasn’t for me; however, it got me to where I am and once I found malware analysis, I latched onto it as I enjoyed it so much.
