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 KPMG, and sessions are usually 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.

Chatham House Rules

All working group sessions are held under “Chatham House Rules“. Please be mindful of this when attending the meetings.

Session Topic: Security Architecture Business Value Realisation

For our June 2019 session we will be looking at picking up where we left off with our last session, but instead of looking at how we deliver a security architecture that could deliver business value, we will be looking at when and how a business actually gains value from a well developed security architecture. In esssence, we will be discussing the question of how to get the most out of all those great plans that security architects deliver. When are these plans actually providing value to a business? As usual, we will be looking at the problem space and potential answers to some of the challenges that security architects  come across when it gets to the point to transforming a business and adapting security architecture solutions.
