How ITIL-based Change Management Helps Organizations Stay Secure
In today's business environment, technology is constantly evolving and organizations must adapt to stay competitive. However, with each change comes the risk of introducing vulnerabilities and new attack surfaces. This is where Change Management comes in and the most common standard for Change Management is ITIL.
ITIL, or Information Technology Infrastructure Library, is a framework for IT service management that provides a structured approach to managing IT services. One of the core components of ITIL is Change Management, which is a process for managing and controlling changes to IT services.
Change Management is designed to ensure that changes to IT services are properly planned, tested, and implemented. This helps to minimize the risk of introducing vulnerabilities and new attack surfaces. By following a structured change management process, organizations can ensure that changes are properly tested and that any potential risks are identified and addressed before they can be exploited by cybercriminals.
Change Management also helps organizations to stay compliant with industry regulations and standards such as PCI-DSS. By following a structured change management process, organizations can ensure that all changes are reviewed for compliance and that any non-compliant changes are identified and addressed before they can be implemented.
Additionally, ITIL-based Change Management helps organizations to keep their IT services running smoothly by minimizing disruptions and downtime. By properly planning and testing changes, organizations can ensure that their IT services are available when they are needed most.
ITIL-based Change Management is a crucial component of an effective cybersecurity strategy. It helps organizations minimize the risk of introducing vulnerabilities and new attack surfaces, stay compliant with industry regulations and standards and keep their IT services running smoothly.
