The security architecture working group is providing a platform for security architects in Melbourne to meet peers and exchange ideas to improve their security architecture delivery capabilities.
Meetings are organised by the ISACA Melbourne Chapter, the venue is sponsored by Deloitte Risk Advisory, and sessions are facilitated by Andreas Dannert, Immediate Past President of the ISACA Melbourne Chapter and Enterprise Security Architect within Deloitte Risk Advisory.
Attendees are encouraged to bring an open mind and willingness to share their experiences in order for everyone to get value out of these meetings.
Meeting Topic: Connecting the Dots
Are we, as security architects, delivering what the business has asked us to deliver? Can we proof it?Do we have a way of making corrections over time to an initial approach? One way of achieving this is to ensure that each step in developing a security architecture is logically derived from the previous one and that these steps can be traced back at any point in time. This approach not only ensures appropriate levels of documentation, but more importantly allow for future corrections and therefore controlled improvements of a solution and in this case a security architecture that we have developed.
In this first security architecture working group session for the year we will explore and discuss how this can be achieved and the value of this approach. As a starting point we will look at an example based on implementing such traceability within SABSA, before discussing and sharing other methods of achieving traceability from business requirements to security services and controls in an security architecture.
