ScottMadden’s Case Study Focuses on Managing Information Security in a Shared Services Organization

May 18, 2016

ScottMadden, Inc., a general management consulting firm, has released a new case study focusing on managing information security risks in a shared services organization (SSO). This report reviews ScottMadden’s role in helping a multifunction SSO in the entertainment industry assess its security practices.

The SSO had a typical design, where confidential data moved through many systems and was subjected to multiple touch points and delivery options. Although a security control framework had been implemented by the enterprise, policies and related security controls were incomplete. ScottMadden worked with the client team to identify the risks to the organization’s information and prioritize mitigating solutions.

“SSOs are often unaware of their security risks. Each day they handle important data that is sought after by criminals,” said Jon Kerner, partner and information technology practice leader at ScottMadden. “We are helping corporate and shared services organizations address information security risks by establishing sustainable cybersecurity programs with business practices that do not impede service speed and quality,” added Jerred Crosby, partner at ScottMadden.
