3. Strategic Workforce Planning

…Yanni’s and Paul’s essays responded to the first topic – “Increasing Speed and Sophistication of Cyber Attacks”

For me,” Paul Linkchorst reported, “I just initially saw the case competition in ISACA’s weekly newsletter and was reminded by professors/staff of the ITACS program.  I simply wrote up an essay using knowledge from coursework, work experience and critical thinking on certain topics.  After receiving the award, I was able to attend ISACAs Philly Chapter meeting where I received the award and was able to network with professionals.
