Bank of America Merrill Lynch - Senior IT Auditor (Cyber Security)

I come originally from Greece where I grew up but I moved to the UK when I was 17 to go to university and stayed here since. I hold an MSc in Civil and Environment Engineering and I have had a varied career for the last 12 years, ranging from traffic engineering, renewable energies, construction management and then moving to PwC's IT Risk Assurance practice where I worked on a large variety of Financial Services and Insurance clients in engagements as varied as Audit, IT Governance, Information and Cyber Security as well as helping grow the Project and Programme Assurance practice. I am currently working for Bank of America Merrill Lynch as an IT Auditor specialising in Cyber Security. I have a wide range of interests such as theatre, music and dance, social entrepreneurship, politics, innovation, design, travelling and writing - I'm generally very curious about everything and love exploring new things and ideas. I also love languages and learning about other cultures and I speak Greek, English, French and Spanish fluently and still a beginner in Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese!
