"My colleagues at Accenture encourage me to ask questions and to keep learning. The support network is truly invaluable."

What I Do

As a Senior Analyst in Accenture’s Strategy Security, I advise clients on all aspects of security, from protecting against cyber breaches to recovering after a disaster. My specialty is in cybersecurity and data protection.

I came to Accenture with a law degree and a background in intellectual property and data privacy law. Accenture has given me the unique opportunity to not only develop my expertise in cyber law, but also understand the entire security threat landscape that businesses face. Given the increased sophistication of hackers and the expansion of the Internet economy, businesses now prioritize cybersecurity protection. It is an exciting time to be part of Accenture’s team and help clients tackle these evolving threats and opportunities.

Day in my Life

A typical day on a cybersecurity assessment project involves interviewing executives and employees from the company on their security practices. I then work with my team to extrapolate security trends across the company and find solutions to the company’s gaps in security.

My work is very collaborative, which has allowed me to work closely with, and learn from, Accenture’s cybersecurity experts. The work environment is dynamic. My team will collaborate on laptops, on white boards, or via Skype for Business and we may be working out of the client site, an Accenture office, a hotel, or our homes. Every day is different and presents new challenges and learning opportunities.

Outside the Office

Outside of work, I enjoy skiing, biking, going to museums, visiting my family in California and Sweden, and cooking spicy foods.

I am a member of the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals and the New York City Bar Association.

My Advice

I recommend to candidates interested in Accenture to be able articulate what makes them unique, whether it is a certain skill set, academic background, or even an unusual hobby. Accenture values diversity in all forms and thrives from having consultants who can offer different perspectives on business problems.
