Ones To Watch

Meet some amazing young individuals who are making a splash in Corporate Australia: Vivienne Mutembwa, Anmol Saini, Leo Saito, Denise Cheng & Matt Levy




VIVIENNE MUTEMBWA


What is your current role?


I am a Consultant in the field of Cyber Security, Governance, Risk and Compliance. I assist public and private organisations in achieving their business or service delivery and technical security objectives. I studied at the University of Cape Town in South Africa and hold a Bachelor of Commerce with majors in Economics and a Bachelor of Commerce Honours in Financial Analysis and Portfolio Management


Why are you passionate about cybersecurity?


Cybersecurity is important to me because I believe the digital economy has provided social inclusion in terms of access to financial services, healthcare, education and community development initiatives.  When an organisation has a cybersecurity-related challenge, of course, there is the macro impact but there is also the micro impact because these are real people affected and therefore it becomes personal.


What are your career goals?


To quote Oscar Wilde “Be yourself; everybody else is taken” I aspire to not only become an expert in my field but also an authentic and genuine trusted advisor to my clients and peers. I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by a network that has generously shared their experiences and knowledge with me and I, therefore, intend to become a mentor within the industry. I want to be intentional about my career, but also allow myself to explore and take the opportunities that may come along the journey, especially those that scare or intimidate me. Though I believe there is still a lot of work I have to do, I acknowledge my progress so far and the fact that taking opportunities presented to me is what got me here today.

What are you currently passionate about?


As an Indian born Australian woman, I have experienced firsthand the effects of exclusion and biases - both at school and in the workplace in corporate Australia. I am therefore extremely passionate about fostering diversity and inclusion into everything I do, whether it's in the way I lead and empower my team in the office or the initiatives I am involved with outside of work.
