A security architecture framework is a collection of consistent guidelines and principles for executing different levels of business security architecture. When designing security controls, it becomes vital to understand the business objectives and the risks introduced by the IT environment.

Achieve the goal of aligning security needs with business needs by following enterprise security architecture frameworks!

Implementing security architecture is often a confusing process for enterprises. Organizations could choose to devise their frameworks by integrating international standard frameworks. Enterprise Security Architecture frameworks such as SABSA, COBIT etc., help organizations reach the goal of aligning security requirements with business essentials.

Why Security Architecture?

Security Architecture is the overall design of security controls within the business environment that addresses its needs and potential risks. It is an integral component of enterprise architecture planning, which specifies when and where to apply security controls. It helps enable business functions and provides value to the organization. Planning for a robust & sustainable architecture for security benefits organizations in the following ways: –

  • Act as an enabler to achieve core business objectives
  • Operations become more transparent and accountable
  • Fewer or negligible security breaches or incidents
  • Compliance with critical data security standards & regulations
  • More efficient and effective IT environment

We assess the current organization environment across three verticals: People, Process & technology. The result goes communicated along with its risks and areas of improvement. Risks get identified and evaluated based on their impact on achieving the organization’s business objectives.
