Security Architecture Program and Processes

Enterprise Security Architecture Processes

Whether an organization is small with a relatively straightforward data environment or a larger entity with a data infrastructure that's far-reaching and complex, it's a good idea to identify and protect against security risks by establishing a security architecture program and the associated processes to implement it.

What Is a Security Architecture Program?

A security architecture program is a unified set of processes that help identify potential security risks, address vulnerabilities, and lays out a plan of action should a risk turn into an actual security threat. To create an enterprise security architecture program, it's essential to map out all informational assets within an organization. Creation of the program also involves selecting and managing which safeguards will be put into place, as well as constantly assessing and retooling those safeguards as the need arises.
