Enterprise Security Architecture in a Dynamic Environment
Throwing cybersecurity technology at your IT systems doesn’t lead to real security. Without a coherent security architecture vulnerabilities will remain to be discovered by attackers. Security Architecture is a well-established principle in highly-secure networks to design security into IT but far less prominent in commercial networks. It is increasingly important for today’s highly adaptive, cloud-based IT environments.
The UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) defines security architecture as
The practice of designing computer systems to achieve security goals.
Our mission, as enterprise security architects, is to develop and evolve an adaptive, context-aware security architecture for your network infrastructure and its related security mechanisms, policies and procedures, for operation within a dynamic environment. The purpose of this is to ensure your business is able to operate safely in a dynamic threat and technological environment by effectively managing the risks to your information assets.
Enterprise security architecture links the components of the security infrastructure into one integral design, ensuring the right technology is deployed, reducing the risks of undiscovered vulnerabilities and reducing technology costs.
