Teradata Security and Privacy Architect in Prague, Czech Republic

Security and Privacy Architect


The Security Privacy Architect will implement security policies for clients. The Security Privacy Architect is familiar with all aspects of security and privacy in data and applications, including access security, best practices for securing data access by applications (e.g. using semantic layer views as opposed to a user query accessing a table directly), global differences in privacy best practices or standards (i.e. EU standard is "opt-in," U.S. de facto standard is "opt-out"), security of off-line data (backups and archives), and options and alternatives to implementing different "levels" or requirements for privacy and security. An "expert" skill level may be required when the client is a government entity or is a business based or operating in the European Union. The Security Privacy Architect may be the Project Tech Lead on a project.

Key Areas of Responsibility

  • Establish and audit a security policy for the client’s Unified Data Architecture – which may include Teradata, Teradata Aster, Hadoop, Open Source and Teradata Applications.

  • Provide security services on systems that are located on premises, in the cloud, or functioning in a mixed environment.

  • Define client requirements related to security and privacy.

  • Design features for a Trusted Database Interpretation (TDI), formerly the National Computer Security Center (NCSC) guidelines.

  • Define requirements for physical system security.

  • Implement the basic security components of Teradata, Teradata Aster, Hadoop, Linux, and Teradata Applications.

  • Conduct system security audits and identify gaps.

  • Educate customers on security and privacy issues, best practices, and Teradata, Teradata Aster, Hadoop, and Teradata Application security features.

  • Design and develop the security privacy architecture, roadmap, and standards for Teradata, Teradata Aster, and Hadoop systems that will align with the customer business and IT objectives.

  • All Consultants are expected to build value in themselves. Teradata’s extensive library of both instructor led and web based training provides ample opportunity for the consultant to build and maintain marketable skills. Time has been allocated specifically for this task and each consultant is expected to have a ‘Learning Plan’. Progress against the learning plan is part of the annual appraisal.

  • All Consultants are expected to build value in their practice through the contribution and reuse of consulting assets. At the conclusion of each assigned project, a consultant is expected to evaluate the project deliverables and to contribute those items that may be useful to other consultants that may be assigned similar projects. When a new project is assigned, the consultant will search the asset repository for assets that may improve or accelerate the project delivery.
