I'm a defensive security engineer with a passion for Free Software and DevOps. As such, I'm very interested in combining FLOSS tools and DevOps principles to solve problems like Patch Management, Log Management, Security Event Management or Vulnerabilty Assessment. I strongly believe that a good security posture requires tight integration of strategic & tactical security management with security operations to develop appropriate policies, implement effective actions and measure their success meaningfully. I strongly believe in Software Freedom and copyleft as a tool to improve Software Freedom overall. This is why in my free time I volunteer for the Free Software Foundation Europe by coordinating the local group Linz also for the FH Linux Users Group (fhLUG) by organizing and giving talks and workshops, including talks on Open Standards, Software Freedom and FLOSS Licensing.
