Practical Cybersecurity Architecture - Second Edition

By: Diana Kelley, Ed Moyle

Overview of this book

Cybersecurity architecture is the discipline of systematically ensuring that an organization is resilient against cybersecurity threats. Cybersecurity architects work in tandem with stakeholders to create a vision for security in the organization and create designs that are implementable, goal-based, and aligned with the organization’s governance strategy. Within this book, you'll learn the fundamentals of cybersecurity architecture as a practical discipline. These fundamentals are evergreen approaches that, once mastered, can be applied and adapted to new and emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning. You’ll learn how to address and mitigate risks, design secure solutions in a purposeful and repeatable way, communicate with others about security designs, and bring designs to fruition. This new edition outlines strategies to help you work with execution teams to make your vision a reality, along with ways of keeping designs relevant over time. As you progress, you'll also learn about well-known frameworks for building robust designs and strategies that you can adopt to create your own designs. By the end of this book, you’ll have the foundational skills required to build infrastructure, cloud, AI, and application solutions for today and well into the future with robust security components for your organization.

Who this book is for

This book is primarily for cybersecurity practitioners getting started with cybersecurity architecture or those already following a systematic architecture process who would like to build their skills. For the novice, we walk through the fundamental skills and techniques used in the architecture process and, for those with some experience already, we supplement our viewpoint with that of other architecture specialists currently in the field to help them think about challenges in a new way or adapt strategies that have been successful for others into their own toolkit.
