About John Boss Consulting B.V.

2019 marks eight years of successfully delivering assignments for John Boss Consulting B.V.

Project definition, procurement and delivery are strong themes across many of the assignments. Delivering complex technology change in an operational environment presents commercial, operational and technical challenges. 

John Boss Consulting B.V. has been helping clients meet these challenges, from both the strategic and tactical perspectives. These have been assignments where technical documentation, schedules and contracts are more important than powerpoint slides.

The assignments have been interesting, challenging and diverse. Highlights include:

The best of all: the assignments have all been worth while - no reports that just clutter up the shelf but tangible results on the ground. Clients are happy - they come back.

On Cyber Security

Cyber security has become a critical point of interest in projects and infrastructure. John Boss Consulting B.V. is working with Leiden University and TU Delft (via Masters in Cyber Security). An integral part of that work is delivery of a thesis.

The thesis is focusing on cyber security and signalling. Chapter 1 looks at the difference paradigms of signalling and security. Chapter 2 examines the basis for security, looking at the legal background, network architecture to support the business and a review of risks. Chapter 3 examines the ERTMS GSM-R link (subset 37) and a proof of concept for security monitoring. Chapter 4 gathers the requirements for monitoring, including technical, governance and organisational. Chapter 5 then validates the findings.
