Akshay Finney works in cybersecurity doing what he calls ‘ethical hacking,’ where he and his colleagues travel to hospitals and hack their systems to demonstrate how they’re vulnerable. At Drexel, Akshay had three standout moments during his academic career. The first was his first day of Web Security 101, where the professor (who Akshay deemed ‘amazing’) blew his mind by delving into computer science. The next was his co-op experience at Meditology.
‘I learned so much in six months,’ says Akshay, ‘I learned real skills that translated to the work force.’ The third standout moment for Akshay was when he and his classmates hosted a cybersecurity conference. They brought in top of the line companies and people, for the purpose of getting students exposure with industry professionals. For Akshay, his work is building off of his Master’s Thesis, which focused on cyber-physical systems and medical device security; ‘I love what we do. We do it so people can sleep better at night.’
