Dr. Ekkard Schnedermann is offering professional consulting for advanced information technology.
Current focus areas are Cloud Security, Security-as-Code and Quantum Computing.
If interested, please contact us.
In the majority of our engagements with clients, we jointly clarify the vision and identify deliverables for the scope. We can deliver security concepts, security reviews, development of security code and research support in quantum computing.
Security concepts generally take the form of plans, which are centered around your cloud environment.
We can deliver to any desired format: As a collection of documents, drawings, presentations, or your own specific format.
The concept can comprise the whole or parts of the security analysis chain:
- From taking inventroy of the information assets
- via threat analysis
- to security architecture
- detailed prescriptions of security measures
- and concluding with tracking the implementation.
We can offer this currently for AWS and Azure up to the largest multi-account environments.
Our qualification is AWS Certified Solutions Architect with AWS Certified Security Specialty, and Microsoft Certified Azure Security Engineer Associate.
We can develop code to improve the security in your cloud, DevOps, or CI/CD-pipelines.
It can be delivered as source code, configuration files, or as content in your specific tool.
It can cover the whole or parts of the development chain: From requirements analysis to solution specification via code design up to testing.
We offer automated checks for AWS customized to your environment or for deployments based on CloudFormation.
We can deliver reports about processes, configurations or systems in general, with the focus of information security.
The evaluation can be based on an international or national standard, or on your specific control set.
We can offer evaluations with focus on Identity and Access Management and Configuration Management processes.
Our qualification is CISA and CGEIT of ISACA.
We are very excited about the possibilities of quantum computing and would be happy to support you in pioneering applications of quantum algorithms. This could include
- modelling physical Hamiltonians with quantum algorithms,
- programming models with QC frameworks in Python,
- optimizing the adaption from the QC program to QC hardware
- and preparing test runs on quantum simulators.
We have successfully completed the courses “The Hardware of a Quantum Computer” QTM2x and “Architecture, Algorithms, and Protocols of a Quantum Computer and Quantum Internet” QTM3x of DelftX.
