The security architecture working group (SAWG) 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 KPMG, and sessions are usually facilitated by Andreas Dannert, Research Director of the ISACA Melbourne Chapter and Enterprise Security Architect at nbn.

Attendees are encouraged to bring an open mind and willingness to share their experiences in order for everyone to get value out of these sessions.

Session Topic: Creating Business Opportunities with Security Architecture

In our October Security Architecture Working Group (SAWG) session we want to focus the discussion on how to deliver an enterprise security architecture that is creating business opportunities rather than planning, defining, and implementing security controls. One could argue it is the same, but others might see it as taking a different approach, especially when it comes to shaping the message in a more encouraging and positive way. Trying to build a business contrary to trying to build barriers sounds definatly better. The question we need to address here is how can we build a business and do this in a way that is enabling business opportunities while at the same time minimising an organization’s security risk? Is this possible and if so what would this look like? Have you ever wondered how security architecture can be seen as business enabler instead of being a business inhibitor? If you wonder a about this and discuss potential options of solving this issue, join us for our October SAWG session.
