About the course

As the world becomes increasingly Digital and with escalating Cyber Threats, it becomes imperative for organisations in Singapore to adopt an Enterprise Security Architecture approach to secure the Digital Enterprise in support of Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative.

However, it is the common experience of many organisations that Cybersecurity solutions are often designed, acquired and installed on a tactical basis. As a result, an organisation builds up a mixture of Cybersecurity solutions, each independently designed and specified and with no guarantee that collectively they will be effective against Cyber Threats and without a full defense-in-depth strategy.

With the above in mind, this course is intended to provide a business-driven approach to architecting security to support the long-term needs of the organisation. It also seeks to provide participants with Architecture Design thinking skills and best practices on Security Architecture. Using a boot camp approach, participants will have hands-on experience in developing an Enterprise Security Architecture blueprint that is immediately applicable to their organisations.

Key Takeaways

At the end of the course, the participants will be able to:

  • Apply a business-driven approach to architect security and provide traceability to business objectives
  • Evaluate security architecture frameworks, principles, reference architectures and standards
  • Develop key security architecture artifacts
  • Formulate security strategy considerations for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) in Industry 4.0.

What Will Be Covered

  • Enterprise Business-driven Approach to Architecting Security
  • Linking to Business: the Contextual Security Architecture
  • Architecting Security: the Conceptual Security Architecture
  • Designing Security: the Logical Security Architecture
  • Building Security: the Physical Security Architecture
  • Implementing Security: the Component Security Architecture
  • Formulate Security Strategy considerations for Cyber Physical systems, Cloud and IoT
