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 have created and vetted the documentation that we will use to execute our architecture project. There is still some refinement to do before we can fully begin that execution, though. For example, we will need to work with the various subject matter experts to create the detailed implementation plans for subsets of our blueprint, and we will also need to make sure we vet the plan with technical stakeholders. We will do this iteratively as we move into the implementation phase in Chapter 7, Execution – Applying Architecture Models.

In the next chapter, we will cover the steps required to do the same pre-implementation artifacts for applications. Because the application architecture is different enough from the enterprise architecture that it has its own standards, deliverables, design, and modeling languages, we will discuss how to integrate security into those types of projects in a manner parallel to what we've done in this chapter...
