In the competitive world of Information Security, the competition isn't limited to hackers, the competition is for information security experts to defend data and critical information from unauthorized access, use and potential destruction. Working in information security is exciting, challenging and never ending but promises variety and it's all about being on the cutting edge and that's me.
As a solutions-oriented industry professional with 12+ years of insightful experience in IBM Rational/Jazz Tools Implementation, IT Security Management and a distinguished holder of multiple certifications (C|EH, C|HFI, CCNA), I was associated with Aetna Inc, supporting IBM Rational AppScan in enterprise environment for protecting Aetna’s Information assets by managing external and internal information risks.
Over the past decade I've worked as a senior IBM Rational consultant in evaluating and implementing IBM Rational/Jazz/HP Suite tools for companies throughout USA. I've developed configuration and change management strategies using Rational ClearCase UCM and ClearQuest and helped companies with my technical skills troubleshooting issues and managing several applications in complex enterprise environment.
Given my expertise in information and cyber security technical implementation and information security architecture, I managed IBM Rational AppScan Enterprise improving the response time of scans by 50% over the course of the year and optimized existing rule set in AppScan to run 10 scans at a time decreasing the applications wait time for major/minor release by 60%, making web-applications run more scans just in time before releases.
Driven by high energy levels and technical competence, I am currently pursuing opportunities in information security and If your organization is looking to increase your team's profile, I would love to talk with you to discuss your organizations top-priority information security needs and the results you can expect from me.
