About Me

/Who Am I

Christian Nyakanyanga

I graduated from the University of Pretoria with a degree in Information Science, after-which I joined the corporate workforce as an IT Consultant for one of the big auditing firms.

I spent a great number of years fine tuning my technology and business acumen until my need for autonomy and a new challenge led me to start my own company. Cyber Sentinel  is an information security company firmly rooted within the Johannesburg financial services sector.

The need to improve my communication and leadership skills led me to join the Johannesburg Toastmasters Club. I have held various leadership positions within the club and I am currently serving as the club president.

As a speaker I have competed and won public speaking competitions at various levels, my highest achievement to date was being placed 3rd in the 2013 Toastmasters International District 74 Humorous speech contest.

Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.

- Steve Jobs -


/What I do


As a Speaker my ambition is to inspire transformational excellence within the individual and the organisation.

Excellence begins with the individual before it diffuses into and reflects the community or organisation.

The pursuit of excellence begets individual or organisational resilience, efficiency and competitiveness.


I am the founder of Cyber Sentinel a Johannesburg based information security firm.

Our goal is to dominate and shape the industry through the persistent pursuit of excellence.

We have a proven track record of timely delivery specifically within the financial services sector.


The difference between surviving and thriving is the implementation of an effective strategy.

Effective strategies are those that are built to be adaptable in supporting the organisation’s vision.

I assist organisations in developing strategies that support resilience, competitiveness and profitability.

I worked with Christian briefly and found him to be extremely dedicated and hard-working. He was also really well-liked, and I think he has outstanding integrity and character.

I had the privilege of working with Christian on several occasions while facilitating data protection services at KPMG. Christian always showed a keen interest in data protection and his thorough grasp of information technology complimented and enhanced data protection as a service line to clients. His ability to dissect and categorise data protection within the bigger framework of information governance made his role in assisting me with regulatory aspects, invaluable. I have no hesistation in recommending Christian on any Information Governance project
