Patrick Kruse, BS May 2008

After graduating from Wake with a BS in Computer Science, I moved to San Francisco and joined KPMG’s IT Advisory practice, specifically within the Information Risk Management group. Most of my time with this group was spent performing IT general control assessments in support of external financial statement audit teams. After 8 months, I transitioned into a role within KPMG’s Software Contract Compliance team based in Mountain View, California, where I helped conduct software compliance audits on behalf of enterprise software vendors. After about a year and a half with KPMG, I left to join Accenture’s Security Strategy and Risk Management practice and have been based out of the San Francisco office since. My projects thus far have surrounded data protection and privacy-oriented work for pharmaceutical companies.
