Security is too important to be left in the hands of one systems architect or department -- it is the concern of every enterprise. Having a comprehensive plan for making and keeping an enterprise secure is the responsibility of every senior manager, and requires more than the purchase of security software. Enterprise security requires a framework for developing and maintaining a proactive system to provide business assurance and enable new business opportunities.

The authors have designed a much-needed framework for developing enterprise security architecture using key theoretical models and decades of practical experience. The SABSA(r) (Sherwood Applied Business Security Architecture) model is generic and defines a process for architecture development, with each solution unique to the individual business. At the heart of this framework is Business Attribute Profiling, the key step in capturing business requirements, defining measurement approaches and setting performance targets for information system risk management. This approach, lacking for decades in the development of information systems, provides a quantum leap for the many systems architects who have been struggling to achieve this business linkage.

Both technical security personnel and business managers will find this book useful as a tutorial or reference tool. It relates security architecture issues to business requirements using charts and graphs, and includes descriptions of real business situations.
