On Thursday 10th June, in collaboration with BITSA, Amstelveen workshopped over 60 students who were interested in learning and expanding their knowledge in the field of Technology Risk. Amstelveen is an Australian consultancy based in Sydney, who specialise in providing technology risk management consulting. They also work together with clients to meet their risk strategy, digital transformation, projects, and assurance needs.
Featuring guest speakers Obed Oei, Amara Tut, Jessica Ong, Abishek Rathour and Romana Bizjak, students were initially introduced to Amstelveen’s company services, technological capabilities, values, and potential internship opportunities.
They were then presented with an introduction to technology risk as a whole, encompassing concepts such as controls, technology risk in the news, and the four aspects of technology risk;
- Governance and Oversight
- IT Project management
- Operational IT
Afterwards, students were given a case study, which allowed them to apply what they had learnt into a scenario which featured a leaked university exam. Students were then separated into groups and were asked to consider what controls they would advise the university to administer to prevent this from happening again.
Following the official workshop and Q&A, students were given the opportunity to network with Amstelveen’s representatives and other students, whilst enjoying delicious pizza.
Thank you to the Education Team for providing such an exciting and inciteful opportunity for our students, and many thanks to Amstelveen for the successful collaboration. Keep an eye out for more education/career related workshops on our Facebook!
