Mitch ParkerSammy Harris
Chief Information Security Officer - IU Health
I am a results-oriented leader who focuses on the processes behind why we implement systems to augment businesses, and the infrastructure required to support them successfully. I believe that we cannot have security without a concrete idea of what the business needs are, how information systems meet them, and how their implementation and maintenance processes are managed to achieve these goals. I believe that security is an integral part of the business process, whether it is evident or not. I believe in security that makes sense, not security for security’s sake. Proper design, planning, timing, and execution are what make projects successful and build long-lasting customer relationships. I have spent the past 16 years working to build unique systems that meet customers’ business and security needs through the entire systems development lifecycle. I encourage others to bring that forth, with the goals of continual improvement, reusability, security that makes sense, and planning for the future. Specialties: Network Security, Active Directory, configuration management/review, audit controls, logging/auditing system implementations, database administration/management (MS SQL Server and Oracle), systems integration, hardware management, database performance management, policies and procedure writing, Windows Server implementation/management, and Linux.
