Mr Christopher Radbone has made a distinguished contribution in the areas of governance, privacy protected sharing of data, service management and standardisation through his passion and capacity to engage and influence organisations and government policy.
Mr Radbone’s passion and dedication has earned him the nickname of ‘Mr ITIL’ for his distinguished contribution to influencing and building the professional capacity of particularly SA government. As inaugural itSMF SA Branch Chair he successfully established itSMF’s presence in SA, proactively influencing the adoption of IT Service Management through quarterly ACS/itSMF Service Management special Interest Groups, and nationally with the Standards Australia IT Governance Committee IT-030-05. The IT-030-05 committee evaluated BS15000 strengths and weaknesses for managing IT services, making the case for its adoption firstly as Australian Standard (AS8018) and then International Standard (ISO/IEC 20000).
Mr Radbone’s focus on empowering organisational performance through data sharing and NT DataLink has informed decision makers by enabling innovative, public, good research and analysis which has resulted in legislative regulatory changes. He is considered a national leader designing and implementing privacy protecting technologies for sharing people’s sensitive data. On ACS’s Data Sharing Committee, he continues to contribute his passion for social justice, public value, data science and security.
Mr Radbone has also made a distinguished consistent contribution to the Australian Computer Society over the past 21 years and from 2013 on the SA Branch Executive as Chair, Vice-Chair and Treasurer.
