Security and Privacy SIG
Vivit’s Security and Privacy SIG leader focuses on what he
calls the "satisfaction triad.”
"Security, quality and performance. I dive deep into those three
areas and the overlap in between them,” said Dominic Listermann.
To do this, Listermann said he uses HP Software tools such
as ALM, UFT, Service Test, Loadrunner, Fortify and WebInspect.
Being a part of Vivit has helped him interact with members,
share experiences and knowledge. Collaborate together.
"More than likely, if I’m experiencing an issue, someone has
addressed the same challenge,” he said.
Listermann transitioned to Vivit from the Mercury
User Group after HP acquired Mercury in 2006.
"Always adapting to change is a must in IT security as in
life," Listermann said.
"It’s such a specialized field. It’s constantly changing. I
don’t know if I’d like to be in my kids' shoes right now,” Listermann said with
a laugh. "The rate of change is phenomenal.”
Life for Listermann also includes some very physical
challenges he tries through an understanding of systems.
He competes in ultramarathons, competitions that
are beyond the definition of a marathon, which usually is 26 miles and
385 yards, or 42.195 km. "I like them because it teaches you basically how to work in
an Agile fashion. You work with systems within systems.”
