PROFILE Network, Security & Systems Integrator working in Network Infrastructures for over 12 years. My experience as an Information Systems professional includes 10+ years exposure to Unix. Windows NT/2000/XP from when they were still OS/2. Played a pivotal role in the design and development of the Network & Security Architecture for the United Kingdom's first online banking system.  Strong knowledge of how routers interact and experience in diagnosing major network faults.  Strong inter-personal and communication skills, training users in complex topics, acting as a vendor liaison, and interacting positively with upper management.  Strong focus on developing and learning new skills as the industry evolves.  A good team player who enjoys the camaraderie that comes with a cohesive team.  Strong problem solving and decision making skills, will present a situation overview not a list of problems. KEY SKILLS • Network Management. • System Integration. • LDAP Directory Server. • Perl Programming. • Identity Management. • Network Architect Security. • Networking. • Unix Solaris. • Linux SuSE, Red Hat. • Leads by example. • C / Assembler. • RDBMS (SQL). • Good team player. • Java Script. • Customer focus. • MS Windows. • Apache. • Oracle PL/SQL. EXPERIENCE SUMMARY 2005 - Present Analyst Programmer - Senior Computer Sciences Corporation - Nortel Account. 2003 - 2005 Network Integration Analyst - Senior Computer Sciences Corporation - British Telecom Account 2001 - 2003 Network & Systems Integrator / Troubleshooter Contractor / Consultant. 1999 - 2001 Systems Analyst Sprint Canada 1989 - 1999 Senior Technical Analyst Nationwide Building Society 1976 - 1988 Computer Engineer & Programmer. ICL Ltd, a Fujitsu company. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Cisco CCNA® certified. BSc, Computer Network Engineering, Rochville University. HP OpenView NNM 6.1 (on Windows & Unix), (A Hewlett Packard OpenView Certified Consultant.) Micromuse/IBM Netcool Omnibus, Router configuration and management, Managing Microsoft Windows Advanced Server, Remedy Action Request, C, Advanced C, Unix for users, Unix Administration and Vi. Numerous CBT (SkillSoft) courses: on Active Directory, PKI/X.509, SAN/NAS and Cisco. SELECT ACHIEVEMENTS  Troubleshooting: In response to a major fault, I designed a new topology to the company's WAN router network. Result: The fault was corrected and the network has been stable ever since, with a saving of approx. $90,000 in router upgrade costs.
  • 2. 2/4  Initiated Action: Realised the need for a company wide web telephone directory. Designed, developed and negotiated with management and user groups, from initiation to delivery of the first production system. Result: The Company stopped printing paper directories, with a saving of approx. $80,000 per year.  Problem Solving: For security, the network devices were set to report all problems and anomalies to the Network Management System (HP OpenView & Micromuse Netcool OMNIbus). The sheer volume of fault data swamped the network administrators. I devised a severity moderation scheme to solve the problem. Result: The number of false positives was reduced thereby making it much easier to see the true state of the network.  Appraisal Quote: "Mike constantly takes initiative to make the right things happen and even when not directly requested to do so he puts in extra effort to find performance improvements. He thinks out of the box and applies this quite well."  Appraisal Quote: "Michael is very proactive and is eager to take initiative for immediate result oriented actions. During an upgrade Michael did an out of hours check to see if the upgraded system was working as expected (it wasn’t). Checked production server and found that it was out of action, hence the customer had NO service. Took responsibility to get the upgraded system stable and switch the users over to it as the production server had a hard disk fault and would not be back in service for quite a while."

I was a member of the team responsible for the configuration and management of about 800 routers.  Responsibilities included: Access Control, Capacity Planning, Building (from disk and BOOTP/jumpstart server) and Securing Sun Unix systems, setting-up & management of Firewalls, Domain Name System servers and network management systems (Cisco Works, HP OV NNM & Micromuse Netcool Omnibus). Maintaining Hardware/Software standards, Network Security and support rotation. Mentoring and supervision of the junior technicians in the team.  Evaluating and making recommendations, as to the suitability of new hardware and software.  Being involved with a wide variety of cutting edge technology and systems at Nationwide meant that I gained useful experience in building good working relationships with the suppliers of the technology we were using. If there was a problem with the hardware, a test network would be assembled to test configurations, plans etc. showing what the perceived problem was and how to reproduce it. The team at Nationwide enjoyed the privilege of being among the first companies to gain access to new hardware.  An important part of this job was the use of Intrusion Detection Systems and Penetration Tests Systems. November 1976 To 1988: Computer Engineer & Programmer. ICL Ltd, a Fujitsu company ( (Bracknell, England). Key technologies / products used in this role: Assembler, C, CPM, DOS, ICE, Unix (for C training).  I started out as a field engineer: Installed, maintained, and repaired (to sub unit and component) ICL mainframes, minis and microprocessor based systems on customer premises. At ICL I was trained to write programs down to micro code level so that I could test individual logic gates if necessary to aid fault tracing.  I supported the hardware for the entire range of ICL Personal Computers. This involved attending an Intel microprocessor design course and writing test software. My role progressed to installing and supporting the operating systems. The work involved writing low-level code, for the device drivers, support utilities in C and assembler. The user utilities took into account usability and the 'Man Machine Interface'.
