Tamarisk’s Biography


Thank you for reading my story and visiting my page.


I am currently pursuing the role of Security Delivery Associate Manager at Accenture (Ireland), focusing in the Cyber Security domain. I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. I have completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science (2009) and a Master’s of Business Administration (2020), from the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa. I have additional certifications in Information Systems Auditing (CISA), Business Analysis and Project Management.

In my most recent role at Accenture, I lead a team who provides guidance to clients, ensuring that the client achieves their audit and governance requirements such as, meeting ISO27001/2 standards, performing cloud and third-party risk assessments against suppliers and being a point of contact to coordinate external and internal audit requests. Prior to that, I worked with Vodafone South Africa Group leading a team specialising in delivering Identity & Access Management (IAM) solutions. In 2015, I was selected to join a Columbus exchange programme for 2 years based in Vodafone Germany. In 2018, I won a top award for a programme to create leadership and personal capacity in women, sponsored by Vodafone South Africa Group and North-West University Business School, South Africa.

My top strengths are analytical thinking, bringing harmony, good communication skills, being consistent and having discipline in everything I do. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, hiking and reading classic literature.
