IT-Architecture

including IT Security Architecture

My Capabilities

  • I've been responsible to bring a high availability solution for secured but efficient privilege access for more than 1,000 IT systems- and database administrators life from scratch (more details).
  • Creation of a 100% OS native solution to avoid weaknesses of Non-HA Identity and Access Management systems for the IT operations.
  • Creation and Implementation of a multi platform security monitoring system to assure maximum transparency for the management in all levels.
  • Integration of RSA based two factor authentication to legacy network perimeter controls under compensation of limited capabilities for federated identity management.
  • I drove the full life cycle to create a security monitoring bus enabling business applications to deliver their application security monitoring events to the central SIEM solution using standardized interfaces.
  • I drove the full life cycle to create a data extracting and delivering application for a huge mainframe legacy application allowing customer created ad-hoc requests to be fulfilled in a continuously updating data mart based on IMS and DB2.
  • Conception of DB2 database activity monitoring using on-board means to create a competitive market in an RfP. This was not implemented, but lowered the lowest bid by more than 1M€ per year.
