This month meeting will be on Thursday and not on the regular Wednesday,
due to a public holiday!

The security architecture working group (SAWG) is providing a platform for security architects in Melbourne to meet peers and exchange ideas to improve their security architecture delivery capabilities.

Meetings are organised by the ISACA Melbourne Chapter, the venue is sponsored by Deloitte Risk Advisory, and sessions are facilitated by Andreas Dannert, Research Director of the ISACA Melbourne Chapter and Enterprise Security Architect at nbn.

Attendees are encouraged to bring an open mind and willingness to share their experiences in order for everyone to get value out of these sessions.

Session Topic: Security Transformations – Where to start?

In an ideal world we have a well defined Enterprise Security Architecture that is aligned to a Enterprise Architecture, which is aligned to Business Objectives. Often this is not the case. Sadly, a lot of organisations have the need to improve their security, but appear to implement security changes on a more tactical basis or because of their need to address a particulars initiative’s security needs.

In this session we will discuss and share ideas around the definition of  a security strategy and the development of associated roadmaps that provide a more strategic approach to transforming an organisation’s enterprise security architecture. The key focus point will be identifying the first steps organisations should take to achieve a more sustainable position in managing their enterprise security architecture. We will discuss this under the premise that an organisation won’t have a mature security architecture function, potentially not even a well defined enterprise architecture. How can security architects start a transformation journey without fixing everything else that is wrong beyond their sphere of influence in an organisation?

Please join us for a lively discussion if this topic is of interest to you.
