Tonight is our first social event of the fall semester. We will all be meeting after class at 8:30 PM at Draught Horse Pub (Cecil B. Moore & Broad Streets) for drinks, food, and trivia. We encourage current and past students of ITACS to attend and share their insights and experiences about the program and working out in the “real world”. We’re also hoping for a little bit of friendly competition during trivia hour! See you there!

This past Monday we had Kim Furlin, Senior Director of Internal Audit at Wal-Mart stopped by the Fox School to discuss what it’s like working in IT Audit and Cybersecurity for the largest retailer in the world.

Kim discussed with undergraduate and ITACS students alike the numerous risks, threats, and challenges that Wal-Mart faces on a daily basis and how they face these challenges as an organization.
