Hear what our recent Graduates have to say...

Jackie O’Mahony

LYIT Graduate 2017: BSc (Hons) in Computing with Computer Security & Digital Forensics 

Current Job: Cyber Forensics Consultant, VM Forensics

"A career in ICT/FinTech does not mean a stereotypical ‘desk job’. Jackie O’Mahony graduated from LYIT in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Computing with Computer Security & Digital Forensics. Communication was an unexpected skill which Computer Security and Digital Forensics graduate Jackie was grateful she learned at LYIT because within 6 months of graduating from LYIT she was in court as a technical witness. Jackie works as a Cyber Forensics Consultant following her studies and her job involves filling in the blanks using digital and forensic methods across all types of digital devices. One day I could be involved in civil disputes such as, data

breaches and the next, in criminal investigations examining CCTV. It’s really varied. It wasn’t just the content of the degree that impressed her at LYIT but the lecturers’ industry background and their knowledge also added to her time at LYIT. I loved the course, it lived up to my expectations. The way it was structured and how well it reflected the real world. The dedication of the teaching staff was amazing. There’s a genuine open-door policy at LYIT and you could always ask for advice.”
