Jeneva Maluleke

Consultant, Cyber Vigilance - Deloitte South Africa

We are the women in cyber. The few protecting the many. The underrepresented, who over influence. The half of the world, who see the problems differently, who solve them uniquely. We are the women in cyber safeguarding society. Protecting us all. We need more like us. We need more like you.

Jeneva is a Consultant at Deloitte Cyber Security Centre (SOC) with over 2 years’ experience. She holds an Honours in Computer Science and has obtained certifications in Splunk Fundamentals 1&2 and Microsoft Azure Fundamentals. She focuses on security event monitoring and reporting on SIEM platforms like ArcSight and QRadar. She had an opportunity to work as part of the SOC response team, responding and investigating security incidents and breaches on various Microsoft products such as Cloud App Security, Azure, Defender Security Center, Defender for Identity, 365 Security and Office 365 Security & Compliance. She has also had experience in the role as a Junior Consultant at the Deloitte Risk Advisory TAA – Assurance in 2018 where she was exposed to multiple IT audit engagements with clients from various industries.

Skills Jeneva recommend having as a SOC analyst include:

  1. Having analytical skills to be able to approach problems from multiple angles.
  2. Always researching and learning new information, building the natural curiosity that when you see a problem or a new technology, you naturally go to find the answer.
  3. Keeping up to date with IT Security trends.

Jeneva acknowledges the following trends coming to light in the near future:

  • Cyber will become more involved in our personal and business lives. Looking at where the digital world is now, most of our critical systems are interconnected by computers. In the future, this connection will be stronger, and more decisions will be automated
  • Our personal lives will be dependent on virtual assistants, and IoT connected devices will be part of almost every function of our daily lives
  • Personal data will reside in cloud computing, where we don’t fully control the dataflow and access to information
