Role Purpose / Description
CMBIT Digital Resilience
The CMBIT Digital Resilience & Cybersecurity team ensures the continued availability and security of Digital services.
Resilience requires continuous service availability risk reduction, achieved through IT maintenance. This includes reducing single points of failure and system dependencies, optimising capacity and performance, improving the speed of issue detection and incident response. Resilience also includes patching and up-grade of major infrastructure, middleware, databases, operating systems and tools without impacting the application services that depend on them.
Cybersecurity risk reduction requires identifying vulnerable assets; implementing processes and IT to prevent and detect attacks; defining and rehearsing response procedures.
Resilience issues are most commonly found in the way in which applications use infrastructure.
The critical success factor in most implementations is that customer impact is zero.
