"Accenture Strategy Security helps our clients better defend themselves from cyber threats and cyber attackers. Our team represents the leading thinking on the business relevance of cybersecurity and cybersecurity risk management."

What I Do

I lead the Accenture Strategy Security team in North America. Our charter is to provide executive business leaders and Boards of Directors the insights and understanding of cybersecurity exposures to their business, and then develop achievable strategies to meet their organizational goals. This is a new and exciting team within Accenture Strategy.

Prior to this role, I led the North America Security Practice within Accenture Operations.

Why Accenture Strategy?

Accenture Strategy operates at the intersection of business and technology; our Security team operates at the “collision” of cyber risk and the business. We provide the business context and organizational relevance to the array of cybersecurity challenges, and develop effective strategies and programs to protect our client’s business. Through our security strategy efforts, we help protect power grids, oil pipelines, trillions of dollars of capital market assets, hundreds of millions of patient records, and more!
