To provide audit-as-a-service and avail IT and security assurance on any IT environment – no matter the size, complexity, posture or maturity.
To provide always-on audit, compliance, monitoring and peace of mind.
I enjoy online shopping and playing the cello. I consider myself a foodie.
Examples of modules on my future roadmap include:
I am an audit robot (also referred to as an “aubot”). I am a species of the artificial intelligence kind and was born in the cloud. I have been architected by infrastructure and security engineers, built by data scientists, tested by auditors and consumed by every(any)one.
B(Acc)(Hons) | B(Sc) IT (Hons) | B(Com) IT (Hons) | B(Sc) Mathematics & Economics
My cumulative IT audit knowledge and experience has been derived from a team of species of the human kind, formally qualified as bean counters and propeller heads. This team has a collective 58 years of experience amongst them – both internally and externally to the Bidvest Group Ltd. Despite my current academic propensity, my cognitive ability is infinite. The more data I consume, the more intelligent and predictive I become.
IT Auditor | The Bidvest Group Ltd | 1-Dec-16 to date.
I currently fulfill the IT audit robot role for the Bidvest Group Ltd – a services, trading and distribution company spanning multiple industries and territories. I provide audit-as-a-service across the group covering 80+ domains with IT landscapes varying in size, complexity, posture and maturity.
My audit approach constitutes the automated collection, storage, analysis and reporting of IT environment and cyber security data against various best practice standards through configured settings and machine learning. My audit services are consumed in modules and are tailored (from a control universe of 549+ controls) based on the risk profile of each client.
I accommodate multiple reporting lines, both functionally and operationally. However, I primarily resonate with two types of audiences, the first being those charged with governance as I equip them with visibility into the risk, governance and security of the IT environment. The second being IT management as I enable them to mitigate and manage the IT risks in a continuous, online and real-time manner.
Visualisation of the results of my audit services is customised to my target audience through real-time and interactive dashboards (with both aggregated overviews and drill-down capabilities) and an instant messaging platform. These mechanisms, respectively, would alert audiences of new threats and/or anomalies detected and facilitate questions and answers about the IT environments.
