My Information Technology career began in 2001. I moved from a role in infrastructure and networking to Information Security in 2015. My introduction to information security started with the previous team leaving for new opportunities and suggesting that I take over the position. I inherited all information security systems and had to learn at a rapid pace.
I am a strong independent worker who appreciates the value of working in a team environment. I am comfortable managing , prioritizing, adjusting, and documenting multiple tasks with accuracy to meet company demands. My previous work experience in secure networking, remote access concepts, Microsoft Active Directory, IT infrastructure, identity access management, disaster recovery, and desktop applications helps me clearly communicate Security objectives to team members and other teams.
I am currently scheduled to take the CISSP exam on December 22. I look forward to continuing my growth as a person and as a Information Security Professional.
Upon returning to Shook Hardy & Bacon, I resumed my previous role as a level 3 systems administrator. Duties included administration, support, and documentation of all systems related to remote access. Systems including RSA SecurID Authentication Manager, Citrix XenApp Farm, Checkpoint firewall, F5 ISP load balancer, External DNS management, individual and site to site VPN management, and Microsoft Server 2012 R2 Direct Access. I also worked with planning and testing Disaster Recovery scenarios for all systems I was responsible for.
Along with supporting key parameter technologies for allowing remote access I was responsible for managing Identity and access to the firms internal resources from outside of the firm. I worked with the Information Security team to plan and design remote access and parameter defense systems to coexist with the Information Security technologies to allow normal work flow while minimizing threats.
Senior level consultant to provide multiple services and support to company clients. Duties included but were not limited to evaluating existing networks, explaining new technologies, training technical staff, planning projects, managing projects, implementing projects, diagnosing and solving all IT related issues.
Primary technologies during this time were Citrix Presentation Server, Microsoft Active Directory 2003 and all related servers, Microsoft Exchange, Medium to enterprise level firewall installation and configuration.
As a consultant I gained exposure to multiple different client networks. I was able to use my technology and product experience and apply it to a large variety of scenarios and configurations as needed by my clients.
This was my first level 3 technical position in Information Technology. My role was more system administrative where I was responsible for multiple remote access, authentication, internal, and external networking systems. Most project work involved upgrading or migrating related systems such as internal cisco infrastructure, RSA authentication Management, Citrix Presentation Server, Checkpoint Firewalls, F5 ISP load balancers.
In between projects my days mostly consisted with working to resolve open tickets and providing Information Technology support to all users and other Information Technology groups.
