Support to a Cryptographic Enabling Services Programme

The Cryptographic Enabling Services (CES) programme addresses a Government department’s information and communications system’s security obsolescence.
BRINGING A LASTING LEGACY
The framework of process improvement knowledge established by IMD Group gives the client the ability to assess processes, roles and supply chain issues themselves.
This knowledge helps the client identify where future improvements can be made to achieve further savings.
THE CLIENTS CHALLENGE
The Cryptographic Enabling Services (CES) programme addresses a Government department’s information and communications system’s security obsolescence.
The department required a due diligence study that would examine the current cryptographic infrastructure. This would inform the business analysis of the key management elements of the programme.

THE CHALLENGE CONTINUES
We were also tasked with analysing general process improvements and efficiency savings across the department.
HOW WE HELPED
  • Cryptographic Key Study

    We collected, collated and analysed data from a wide range of stakeholders to help determine the programme’s key requirements.

  • Requirement Study

    We audited and analysed over 300 individual crypto plans. In addition, we assessed the process for determining a project’s cryptographic needs and producing an appropriate plan, making recommendations to improve them.

  • Cryptographic Use Case Study

    We applied Systems Engineering methodologies to analyse the scope of use cases required to support the CES programme, assess the validity of current use cases, identify any gaps in information and to establish the development and production of additional use cases. This enabled the programme to fully articulate requirements for key management.

People need to be at the heart of change. It’s not always easy to embrace change, and it’s natural to fear the unknown.

SUCCESSFUL OUTCOMES
The IGBC was approved, and the project moved onto the assessment phase. Additionally, IMD:
