  1. Meditology is a small company of around 100 employees based out of Atlanta, GA, specializing in healthcare IT risk management consulting. I began interning with Meditology in the summer of 2019 and accepted a full time offer in September, which took effect on December 2nd. I currently, and will continue to, work in both the IT Risk Management and Ethical Hacking teams.
  2. I am a team lead for a risk management development project, assisting and managing a small team in building a dynamic risk management platform for a client. I am also a penetration tester/reporter and manage the technical support services for the ethical hacking team.
  3. This job is relevant to my MIS major particularly with my risk management project, as it requires in-depth knowledge on both the business and technology sides. The broad range of courses at Temple gave me a solid foundation for understanding the business environment and how technology can be leveraged to achieve business goals, particularly relating to cybersecurity. The BA and PM courses also helped with moving into the consulting field, and I use the knowledge gained from those courses on a daily basis.
