Liberty Mutual Offer Letter

This past summer, I interned at Liberty Mutual in their IT Audit Department. IT and Audit are two completely different business functions, but when they are combined into one, it acts as a risk advisory and cyber security subset within an organization. The primary goal of an IT Auditor is to check servers, databases, processes, etc. and make sure they comply with pre-determined rules and regulations. Most of the time, I ran reports and used applications in order to analyze if a person or “non-human” ID should have access to a specific set of servers or databases. If someone had access, but they should not have, I had to communicate that issue with upper management in order to create a plan in order to remove their access.

Additionally, I worked on a cyber security project with two other interns. In this project, we were tasked with reading an analyzing a report from the New York State Department of Financial Services. This report outlined cyber security protocols within a company. We needed to determine what those protocols are, and create a plan to follow them. From this, I learned about the rules and regulations that an IT Audit group should follow and abide by.

During my time at Liberty Mutual, I applied my knowledge from my classes at Temple University. I used the MIS 2502- Data Analytics class, which taught me process mapping, while I was mapping the processes for an EY Audit of IT. The MIS 2501 – Enterprise IT Architecture class to guide me through audits that dissected user priveledges for Microsoft products and applications. Through my education in the MIS program at Temple, I felt well-prepared for this internship, and future job opportunities.
