Enterprise Security Architecture, A Business Driven Approach - Belfast
Mon 30 January 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
Although conceived in the Security space, SABSA is a business-driven, engineering-based, development process used widely for solving complex problems and 'hot' topical challenges - of any kind. As an holistic Enterprise framework SABSA is also widely utilised to align, integrate and standardise approaches and methods throughout the Business, Architecture, IT, Operations, Risk Management, Compliance & Audit functions. The ISACA CSX Cybersecurity Fundamentals Certificate has a heavy focus on Security Architecture Principles and SABSA is included in the syllabus. Security Architecture features across the range of ISACA Certifications CISA, CISM, CRISC and CGEIT. Managing Enterprise Architecture is a distinct process within COBIT 5.
In this session David Lynas will conduct a SABSA ‘masterclass’ discussion. This is an interactive session, where David will discuss a scenario where a newly trained architect faces the reality of returning to his work, and the manager asks “Right! Where do we start?”
