BULATSA with a nomination at the "IT Manager of the Year" competition
Daniela Vasileva, Head of Information Security at BULATSA, ranked among the three finalists in the category “Innovations” at this year’s IT Manager of the Year competition, organized by ICT Media and the Club of IT Managers in Bulgaria.
The nomination was received due to the successful implementation of the BULATSA Security Operations Center project.
The purpose of the competition is to distinguish the managers who have contributed to the efficient use of information technologies and to highlight their important role in company leadership. The IT Manager of the Year Awards are in three categories – Management, Innovations and Efficiency.
The Security Operations Center is a distributed architecture platform that allows effective protection of the overall IT infrastructure of BULATSA – in the central location in Sofia and the airport air traffic control centers in Varna, Burgas, Plovdiv and Gorna Oryahovitsa. The technical solution is based on a security strategy using intelligent cyber-threat intelligence methods and provides reliable protection against conventional and advanced complex cyber-threats.
The successful building of the Security Operations Center makes BULATSA the only air navigation services provider in the Balkans which has successfully implemented such a project. The project is financed by the Connecting Europe Facility Programme of the European Commission.
