  • Simple Solution to Ailing Adoption
    Simple Solution to Ailing Adoption Greg Rowe - Kansas City LIG Recorded: Dec 12 2017 23 mins
    ITIL will be re-written. So how would you do it? What would you want to be simpler or more easy to understand, yet without loosing so much high-quality essential best practices? 

    The President of the Kansas City LIG has a way forward. In an article published in The Source last April he outlined how to re-group the 26 processes in ITIL into three or four sets. In it, the Service Lifecycle takes a back seat to practical organizational functions. 

    Once you have change management and incident management working well, then the rest is simple. You logically expand the base from there. All process still apply while none stand alone.

    This is also a chance to ask an expert. What does your organization look like? What should it be aligned to good practices? Here's how to go forward from there.

  • The Service Desk on the Front Lines of Cyber-Resilience
    The Service Desk on the Front Lines of Cyber-Resilience Bob Rice Recorded: Oct 11 2017 61 mins
    Don’t be the next news headline!

    Recent theft of business critical information occurred because a Service Desk provided information to a cyber-crook that allowed access to internal business critical servers. The information stolen could impact national security interests.  Why did that happen?  How could it happen? Expensive technology did not stop this breach. How could the Service Desk have been better prepared?

    Security breaches and the theft of intellectual property and personal and financial information are too common. The service desk is KEY to ensuring the early detection of security events and providing the first-line response. So what role should the service desk play in early identification of security events, and how can the service desk best be prepared to respond?

    Are there best practices to provide guidance to develop robust cyber-protection? This session explores cyber-resilience best practices and the impact the service desk plays in response and cyber-resilience.
