"The work we’re doing in the information security field right now has a direct impact on people’s everyday lives."

How I put change in motion

I am a Security Delivery Senior Analyst and identity and access management specialist. My role is to assign digital identities to individual users and facilitate access to complex business systems via passwordless authentication systems, while at the same time increasing the protection of digital corporate assets.

Cybersecurity threats are on the rise for businesses across the globe, especially as companies continue their migration to the digital landscape. The work we’re doing in the information security field right now has a direct impact on people’s everyday lives. What I love most about my work is having the opportunity to help resolve complex integrations and allow users to access business systems in a simple, intuitive, safe way.

I worked on a project recently where we conducted a feasibility study and helped implement a new process to create digital identities for banking customers. I collaborated with my Access Management Team on the integration brainstorming process, documentation and implementation of the solution. Our work allowed people to begin or continue using online banking services during the global pandemic, as access to in-person services became restricted.

A day in my life

My day might start with a coffee on the fly before the first Access Management Team alignment call, where we discuss our project responsibilities, deadlines and organization.

The morning will continue with client calls to discuss project status and deliverables.

After a lunch break, I dedicate the afternoon to carry out my planned activities, such as developments, integration tests or technical documentation.

My passions outside of work are painting and collecting cookbooks. They both allow me to get in touch with my creativity and imagination, both of which are important to succeed and not feel stuck in stressful and work-related situations.

My advice

Identity and access management systems offer a framework that touches on everything from user experience (UX design) and back-end services, authentication and verification protocols to data-layer access methods. It’s important to take advantage of learning opportunities to understand all these areas in order to help maintain and protect the business systems.

There are many facets and areas of opportunities in the cybersecurity space, and so many career paths to try. To be successful, find an area that interests you and jump in!
