Past Intern Experiences:
“The main project I worked on this summer was a ‘Risk Management’ project with our Information Security Analyst. What I did was determine what kind of cyber security threats the company might be vulnerable to. From there, I analyzed all of the company’s systems and what systems might be susceptible to certain threats. Lastly, I determined the amount of loss the company would incur if these cyber security threats were to ever happen, as well as how to mitigate against them.”– Aaron, UW- Eau Claire
