Hi, my name is Patrick Grieshaber. I am an Information Security Analyst working for a company domiciled in Zurich, Switzerland. Studying part time I received my Bachelor of Science in computer science in 2013. Prior to and during my studies I have worked for several companies as a Security Engineer or Security Consultant. The companies are in different industry sectors such as Financial Services, Insurance, Technology or Transportation. During this time I have designed and deployed IT server infrastructure, conducted network traffic analyses, installed security gateways and firewalls as well as executed vulnerability scans or risk assessments. Open Source and Linux (especially Red Hat Enterprise Linux) based technologies have always been in my main focus.
While technology is a lot of fun I understood quickly that IT cannot be successful without proper support from the business. So I assigned myself the task to influence the global information security strategy of my employer and therefore enabling a top down approach on information security within the corporation. I believe this is the key to achieve successful information security on a larger extent.
I am always keen to exchange experience and to meet new people. So, feel free to contact me via email, Xing or LinkedIn.
