  • Implement evidence-based Best Practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Forensics and Incident Response and put Process Design strategies into practice according to Best Practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process.
