Montage Business Advisory Service
Andy Thompson has joined Montage as Principal Consultant: Business Advisory.
Andy aims to help Montage’s customers understand the changes in business process, people and technology needed to implement strategic change.
Andy has a background in Enterprise Architecture, Information Security and Data Governance. Andy aims to ensure Montage’s customers can:
- Action their strategies by understanding the business process, people and technology change needed to achieve business outcomes and to align these with their key performance indicators;
- Determine the right amount of information security to safeguard operations and protect reputation, and
- Manage their information as a strategic asset to get the maximum business benefit at the lowest cost.
Additional to mapping out technology, business process and people change needed to execute strategy, Andy’s experience includes acting as interim CIO for a large New Zealand manufacturer (including hiring his own replacement!)
He has had various virtual Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) roles assessing information security risk then suggesting the right security controls to protect information assets and reputation.
Andy has led projects to help both private enterprise and government customers determine what is required to operate effectively in unforeseen circumstances.
He has helped organisations understand the information that is critical to their businesses processes and ensure that this is managed as a strategic business asset that can be used to create new opportunities, reduce cost and manage compliance and risk.
