I am a professional in the field of Information Security and Business Continuity. I began my working career at a Telecommunications company in January 2006, first as a Customer Care representative for 2 years and later as an Information Security Officer for 3 years. I later moved to a financial institution in August 2010 as an IT risk officer where I have been working since. I have been involved in IT risk management, policy development, compliance reviews and reporting, audit preparations and audit findings follow up, project risk management, as well as coordinating Business Continuity Management. Furthermore, I have been involved in training and awareness as part of embedding a culture that is risk-aware, and that understands and complies with company policies and guidelines.
I have good command of English, both written and spoken, and I can give presentations and write articles that are easy for non-technical people to understand. I believe in making articles informative, simple and fun for easy consumption by the readers. I can document policies based on best practices including ISO 27001/27002, NIST, and COBIT.
I can also prepare information security and IT-related risk assessments for various types of organisations depending on the objectives of the assessment.
I enjoy doing research to enhance and improve my skills as well as to know more about other things happening around the world. I can do research on various topics and collate information from different sources, as well as being able to validate facts by doing additional research to ensure that information is accurate and up to date. This means I am also able to prepare research reports as needed within reasonable timelines based on the research topic and level of detail required.
My career goals include being a professional in the Information Security field and eventually going into self-employment as a consultant. I would also like to be able to train others in the field, as well as in project management and business continuity of which I am getting more exposure to.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (First Class Honours), an ISMS Lead Implementer certificate from BSI, ISO 27001 Certificate of Completion and IT Security Management certificate from MIS. I am a member of ISACA and I hold the Certified Information Systems Auditor certification (CISA).
