What You’ll Be Doing
As an IT audit intern, you will be a key member of our IT Risk and Compliance team, assisting with testing of IT and security controls. You will work closely with the service line partner to help compile client reports and deliverables.

How You Can Grow
You will learn about a wide range of technical concepts based on the unique tech stacks of each of our technology clients. You’ll gain exposure to a range of compliance frameworks, including SOC 2, HIPAA, and HITRUST. You will attend and contribute to weekly team meetings and meet regularly with your mentor in monthly feedback meetings. All interns also have the opportunity to participate in both firmwide and departmental professional development and social offerings.
The learning curve is steep, but you will quickly improve your technical skills and professional communication skills to position you for future career success.
