Cyber Security Risk Assessment

A cyber security risk assessment first identifies assets before locating vulnerabilities and exposing security threats. Only by determining and prioritizing risk can proper security controls be identified. Careful planning, implementation, reporting and ongoing evaluation and remediation are critical to mitigating risk.

IT Security Audits

What People are Saying

Clint Brice

Lucidity had the pleasure of working with Jack on a mission critical, 5-month ERP transformation that was very successful. From the onset, Jack took an “out of the box” approach that allowed him and team to navigate many of the normal constraints on such an aggressive timeline for this transformation. What was accomplished with Jack under his leadership was remarkable and industry-leading, and his ability to do “more with less” was an illustration for us all to learn from. Lucidity teamed with Jack to help him deliver on time, within budget, and meet the boldest expectations for his business – no production downtime, no lost sales revenue, no orders unfulfilled, no negative change in customer relationships, no changes in shipping expectations, and many more. Jack is an authentic, thoughtful CIO with a passion for doing things different for his business and his track record proves that…with this project just being another illustration of his capabilities and skills. We were excited to be his business partner and look forward to working with him for many years to come.

I have been working with Jack for the past couple of years and have had the privilege of providing him with some great resources when needed. I have seen firsthand how well Jack manages and executes large, complex and time sensitive ERP initiatives. Jack’s success comes from not only his passion, energy and insightfulness but also how he puts as much emphasis on the human element and creating the right culture as he does with making sure he has the right technical skillset on each and every project.

I have spent 30 years of my career often engaged as an interim C level manager. Several of these assignments included ERP installations, for a variety of reasons.  I met Jack while serving as interim CEO  at a company that was carved out of a large public entity by a PE.  Jack immediately impressed me with his organizational skills in planning the installation. Then, his technical know- how was augmented with his ability to communicate both up and down the organization, he dealt with resistance intellectually rather than emotionally, constantly adjusted the schedule to account for surprises while maintaining the schedule, and did all this with integrity and transparency.  The most successful ERP installation I have ever witnessed.

To get results, people have to understand, and they need to buy in…. Jack avoids the typical overflow of consulting jargon and instead moves directly to readily absorbable concepts that work.

“I met Jack in January 2013 while he was managing an-going ERP implementation at his current manufacturing concern. He clearly indicated the urgency facing his concern and the need to “turn on” the solution in January 2013. Although there were a number of shortcomings that required immediate attention, Jack established a team of resources and a plan to correct the shortcomings and bring to pass a first class solution for the company.

Impressive was Jack’s attention to details and his concern on the impact that it would have on the human element. Training, assignment and ownership of business processes, changes to the roles from past to future was of utmost importance to him.

His ability to work through these elements and establish a sense of confidence that individuals can move forward and the “change” would be beneficial to all was amazing.

I have known Jack for several years. I appreciate his passion for his work and his research and his enthusiasm to share that passion with academic colleagues and practitioners. Jack places great value on understanding, sharing, and applying sound proven research ideas to his field. This truly is a differentiator.

Complacency is the enemy of change. When companies are at the crossroads of a significant change such as a new ERP system, complacency becomes a primary obstacle. Jack has an immense ability to break down that obstacle to progress the project while aligning stakeholders. His extensive background in IT provides him the ability to be process focused while conveying his message from a pragmatic approach. Being a senior leader of SML, I was fortunate to experience Jack’s methodical approach. His ability to connect with non-IT centric leaders and provide a thorough understanding of the objectives, approach, obstacles and solutions, helps lead a successful roll out. Anyone that has worked with Jack would quickly attest to his passion, determination and assurance.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jack on some very cutting edge enterprise technology projects.  I have found his team building / collaborative / pragmatic approach to leading these projects to be quite unique and invaluable in helping the team obtain its objectives.  All of these challenging projects had multiple stakeholders and Jack’s ability to conduct the “orchestra” is quite impressive. I hope to work with Jack on projects in the future.

Lean and ERP, can they co-exist? Should they co-exist? Jack has the experience and background to answer these questions and to tie these 2 powerful philosophies and tools together toachieve efficient results and to only do what matters. As an IT professional, his personal interest in understanding Lean concepts and the application of those concepts make him a great systems implementation partner.

I’ve had the pleasure of working daily with Jack over nearly two years on implementing, improving, and maintaining our company’s ERP system, business intelligence, and reporting.  He’s been a great mentor and leader, and has been the undeniable key to the success of the ERP system’s implementation.   I know Jack to be a great communicator and organizer, who is highly knowledgeable and insightful in ERP and many other areas of IT.  He is very practical in his approach, emphasizing the importance of aligning company culture and business processes with the ERP system (and vice versa, when appropriate).  Besides that, Jack is just a great person to work with in general, who is trustworthy, open to ideas, and a highly positive influence on the organization.

Leading large-scale organizational transformation has been at the center of my entire career. Like any leadership role it can be a lonely business. Imagine my surprise and delight to find someone with Jack’s knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm who truly gets it to work alongside! Jack is a consummate professional and in the time I have known him I have already learned that he delivers results for all things ERP related. There is no substitute for the kind of expertise that Jack brings to bear in the successful and lean implementation of ERP systems.
