Ioana TuguiComputer Science (BSc) BSc (Hons)
The most important thing I gained from my placements is the reassurance that I want a career in Information Security and Risk Management.
Why did you decide to do a placement while at City, University of London?I think doing a placement, or in my case three placements, gives you invaluable experience, extended knowledge and great advantage over other students. The chances of employment after graduation are increased significantly and, not only are they increased, but the job role one can aim for is higher.
Where were your placements and what were your roles?
- While at Freedom from Torture, I was acting as an ICT Support Officer, providing ICT support, user account management, asset management, backup, documentation and intranet development.
- At GlaxoSmithKline, I worked as a Quality, Risk and Compliance Analyst, my duties ranging from compliance monitoring and risk analysis to project management and drafting and maintaining of policies, procedures, guidance and training.
- Finally, The Economist, gave me the chance to act as an Information Security Analyst, conducting business impact assessments, updating business continuity plans, enhancing the access and identity management regime.
