Novitex’s Vanessa Lapins Wins CIO of the Year Award for Innovative Security Practices

Novitex Enterprise Solutions, the industry-leading provider of the Integrated Document Life Cycle™ (IDLC™) in the Document Outsourcing market, today announced its Chief Information Officer, Vanessa Lapins, was named CIO of the Year by the EC Council for transforming the company’s IT Infrastructure to a secure, cloud-based operation that drives standardization, helps speed overall time-to-market and is highly evolved to meet the business needs of Novitex’s Fortune 500 clients.

Lapins is scheduled to receive the award during the Global CISO Forum 2014, October 16, in Atlanta, GA. The EC Council (International Council of E-Commerce Consultants) is one of the world’s largest certification bodies for information security professionals.

“I am grateful for this recognition on behalf of Novitex. When we assessed what clients wanted from a Document Outsourcing service provider, it was clear our IDLC™ end-to-end service framework offered the first holistic approach to disrupt the marketplace with a unique, digital-first solution. That is why we designed a new innovative IT Infrastructure with the highest levels of client data security and compliance using a private, cloud approach,” said Lapins.

Novitex implemented a Software as a Service (SaaS) back office application plan to migrate its email and Human Resource systems to new, secure, hosted models. IBM’s SoftLayer was chosen to build Novitex’s private, cloud infrastructure that will be integrated with digital multi-service centers for complete business redundancy and the delivery of document logistics and digital services.

“Novitex IT deployed a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy and a SaaS policy for business systems in order to remove infrastructure dependency and security burdens from the network and minimize our overall security footprint. All of these actions have resulted in a hi-tech infrastructure that is ultimately designed to help protect our client’s and their client data, in addition to our 10,000 plus Novitex employees,” Lapins said.

Lapins created a new Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) role to maintain safeguards around client and employee data and further drive IT safety innovation through a Novitex Data Security Office (NDSO). The NDSO drives awareness and adherence to security trends, standards and client requirements through policies, controls, employee education and external assessments.

“In under a year, Vanessa has transformed the legacy IT direction into a cutting-edge, secure environment that has positioned Novitex to quickly respond to new and existing client needs in a cost-controlled and standardized fashion. Vanessa is a true leader and the right CIO to build our new IT foundation to strengthen Novitex’s IDLC Go-To-Market strategy,” said John Visentin, Novitex Executive Chairman and CEO.
