Practical Cybersecurity Architecture

By: Ed Moyle, Diana Kelley

Overview of this book

Cybersecurity architects work with others to develop a comprehensive understanding of the business' requirements. They work with stakeholders to plan designs that are implementable, goal-based, and in keeping with the governance strategy of the organization. With this book, you'll explore the fundamentals of cybersecurity architecture: addressing and mitigating risks, designing secure solutions, and communicating with others about security designs. The book outlines strategies that will help you work with execution teams to make your vision a concrete reality, along with covering ways to keep designs relevant over time through ongoing monitoring, maintenance, and continuous improvement. As you progress, you'll also learn about recognized frameworks for building robust designs as well as strategies that you can adopt to create your own designs. By the end of this book, you will have the skills you need to be able to architect solutions with robust security components for your organization, whether they are infrastructure solutions, application solutions, or others.

Chapter 7: Execution – Applying Architecture Models

The last two chapters have focused on creating the high-level designs associated with what you're looking to build. By now, with not that much time investment, you have a fairly good idea of what you're looking to build and why. You've also validated that direction with the individuals that will be most impacted by what you'll be doing. These are all important things, but there are still some critical steps involved in actually bringing it down a level of abstraction in preparation for doing the necessary work.

In this chapter, we will create and document the detailed technical design schematics that will guide us throughout the execution process. Specifically, we will cover the following topics:

  • Process steps
  • Technical design
  • Operational integration
  • Telemetry
