Working in IT, in the financial, service delivery, retail and now aviation industry, for over twenty years, provided me with valuable knowledge and skill in most aspects of IT. My perfectionistic streak drives me to be organised and systematic and thus I thrive in IT Security, IT Governance, Risk Management and Compliance, but more specific in PCI DSS, POPIA, GDPR and ISO 27000 implementations. Performing risk assessments and security audits, IT security policies, procedure & guideline development, SLA and vendor management, project management, audit liaison and contract management are just a few of the skills I mastered over the years.
During this great journey, we successfully implemented and achieved certification for ISO 27001, as well as PCI DSS compliance at merchant level 1. I’m passionate about my job and IT Security and GRC gives me the opportunity to turn chaos into order.
