Professional Goal: Continuously drive for excellence, both for organization and self and work in a challenging environment that provides me an opportunity for growth and continuous learning.

Current Endeavor: Presently working with Qubole in California as a Technology Risk Specialist. I represent the Security / GRC Team at Qubole. My primary job responsibilities are to perform ISMS Internal Audits, facilitate External Audits, Audit Automation using Python & other programming languages and interfaces and Security related operations.

My mission is much more than acquiring a degree in Information Management. It is an exciting voyage of discovery to unravel the most efficient ways of enhancing business!

While studying Computer Science Engineering, I could foresee the future of organizations lie in Business Transformation, which would be the key differentiating factor for the best-managed companies. I did become aware that Information technology was the use of any computers, storage, networking and other physical devices, infrastructure and processes to create, store, secure and exchange all forms of electronic data. However, it did take me another leap, while progressing through industry experience at Ernst and Young, to fully appreciate that IT, in sharp contrast to personal or entertainment technologies, broadly encompasses ERP, CRM, Data Warehousing and Business Process Outsourcing.

Working for a year as Risk Anayst with Ernst & Young LLP along with a promotion as Operations Analyst for EY Client - Trusight Solutions Pvt. Ltd.brought me a greater exposure in the Risk, Consulting and Management Industry.

As also, nurturing startup - My Vehicle Tracker, a business model based on tracking of vehicles along with highly optimized analytics to provide improvized monitoring and operations helped me gain an overall experience and exposure towards business I now understand the importance and criticality of data and its influence, and hence realize the importance to step out to achieve a world-class education at the University of Maryland at College Park for the course of Masters in Information Management. Here, I have been learning enhanced technologies, subjects and performing projects through the expertise subjects like Data Anlaytics, Information Management, User Experience, Data Science, Statistics, Data Visualization, Data Warehousing and more subjects related to Information Management and Data Analytics.

Furthering my career, along with a conglomeration of work experience gained with my Summer Internship 2019 at EY, where I gain another hands-on-experience as External Audior for FAIT engagements for Fortune 500 banking sector clients, along with gained skillsets through my post graduation course at UMD, I look forward to fit into a more suitable position in the industry and generate better business solutions to exponentially enhance the productivity of outcomes.
