Amongst other key contributions, he was instrumental in developing controls for the EMEA Wholesale Banking payment platforms and accelerated the Cyber Security Education and Awareness program across their EMEA Corporate Investment Banking client base. Prior to J.P.Morgan, Kamlesh held positions within leading South African banks, overseeing regional technology, security and risk functions, successfully maintaining secure and stable business operating environments. He is a Certified Information Security Manager (“CSIM”) by ISACA .

Kamlesh is part of ACA’s team of highly experienced consultants, which includes specialists in payment fraud, cybersecurity, and technology risk from various industries, including investment management, banking, and healthcare. ACA’s PFRA offering includes reviews of clients’ existing systems, controls, workflows, third-party relationships, and technology dependencies to identify potentially exploitable vulnerabilities.
