Joram Teusink's Summary

Single words like geek, nerd, IT-evangelist, developer, gadget-collector, and IT-visionary are proper ways to describe me and my love for IT. Of course I can do more than that. As long as the position has a (direct) relation with IT-technology, I am dedicated to learning everything about it and achieve the best results possible. Whether it is work or my hobby, I actively follow news sources and like to educate where possible.

Whether it would be a position in service- or process-management, technical IT-specialism, or developing, I have the necessary skills, or learning capabilities, to execute the function with the best realistic results possible. With every decision I make, I will consider present policies, organization-structure, services, and processes to make sure that the solution is the best realistic fit. Besides that, it is in my nature to be critical about existing structures and opinions, and I dare to challenge people to look differently at the subject in hand.

I am very creative and like to build. For this reason I have developed a website and accompanying app (more info in my profile). I like to problem-solve by analyzing and systematically searching for the right solution.

Another reason why I love IT so much, is because I truly believe that the world will change significantly in the next 15 to 25 years. Every smartphone will facilitate in being a phone, tablet, laptop and a full desktop at once. The "Internet of Things" are making our daily lives more easy and less time-consuming to manage. All this while you are being a passenger in your own car and using medical technology to monitor and improve your health is a daily routine. The impact of IT on our society will be unimaginably big. The impact on our society will be tremendous and I am intrigued by this development.

Joram Teusink's Projects

  • Workgroup CERT-procedure

    • March 2014 to July 2014

    Development of procedures and guidelines for a (virtual) Computer Emergency Response Team based on the current legislation by law and external auditors. In general, this team is responsible for a adequate response (research, analysis and resolution) to Security events and incidents.

  • Workgroup AOCG Security Threat Model

    • January 2014 to June 2014

    AOCG stands for Atos Outsourcing Contact Group and is a representative organization for customers of Atos that have outsourced (parts of) their IT-department. AOCG requested to start a workgroup to address Information Security and its relevance to the customers of Atos and Atos itself.

    The starting point of this workgroup was the report about the developments of Information Security according to the National Cyber Security Center of the Dutch government. From there the team worked to make a connection between the developments and actors mentioned in the report and the key threats that are relevant for the participating AOCG members.

    From all this the "AOCG Security Threat Model" emerged. This model gives a global overview and relation between the business cases of the (potential) attacks, the actual threats including impact and risks and the mitigating actions that can be taken. This model can be used to explain needed Security improvements with managers and decision makers. It is a tool to help the Security specialist to better explain the world of Information Security.

    My role in this workgroup was to take the lead in the modeling of all the information we found important into one view (the actual model). The entire workgroup worked together to make sure all key information was represented in the model. The end result of this model was presented and explained by me to all AOCG members.
