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.

Section 1:Security Architecture
Section 2: Building an Architecture
Section 3:Execution


Throughout this chapter, we've progressed from high-level design goals to implementation strategies that address those goals. We've incorporated technical solution elements back into our architecture definition, and we've begun the process of building a framework to establish a virtuous cycle; that is, a feedback loop that will help us optimize and refine our efforts over time.

In the next chapter, we will build on this and discuss how to react in real time to events that arise, how to take note of and slot improvements based on information that you collect, and how to future proof the work that you do to ensure that it stays relevant and useful over time.
