Featured Case Study: ITSM Process Improvement

Challenge

Rapid growth through acquisitions meant business demands were increasing while IS had limited capacity to take on more. The majority of the staff was focused on non-core, “keeping-the-lights-on” activities while contractors were being hired to fill higher-level positions. This posed a risk in terms of experiential knowledge loss and lack of developmental and growth opportunities for existing IS staff.

Solution

After conducting a Capability Maturity Assessment, TransAccel Group facilitated the IS Leadership Team (ISLT) through a two-month process to understand the core verses non-core services, and define the critical roles (needed to support the core) and the developmental roles needed to support the non-core, forming the foundation of their new operating model.

These are the technical and physical controls that usually comprise our understanding of how to achieve the best level of security possible. But controls for information security fall into three main categories: the physical and technical—which we’ve already described—and the administrative, which often receives

Is Your Head in the Cyber Security Sand?

“We started as a relatively small company. Through success and internal growth along with some acquisitions, we are now a medium- sized company using the same policies and processes as when we first started.”

Does this sound familiar?

If so, take solace in knowing that you are not alone, but things have to change. For many companies, growth has outpaced their policies and processes, which can be a risky situation, especially in cyber security.

In information security, due care means “acting responsibly

CIOs—Unsung Heroes

In my 35+ years of being a corporate change agent, and now at the helm of my own consultancy, I have worked with all levels of the C-suite, and I have to say the CIO role is by far the most difficult. There are numerous reasons for this, not the least of which is an outdated model of the C-suite itself.

The fact is that most companies still view IT and the CIO role through the narrow lens of
