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: Maintaining ESA Maturity

In our November Security Architecture Working Group (SAWG) session we want to focus the discussion on how to maintain Enterprise Security Architecture maturity over time. While it is an achievement establishing a well documented set of security services suited to an organisation it is even harder to maintain the established level of maturity over time. Additionally, questions of increasing maturity and improving operational excellence need to be addressed. Furthermore, how can the chosen governance model enable cost effective transformation of security services and make them a strategic asset to an enterprise? In a world that is highly dependable on digital services, companies that identify long term, flexible approaches to integrating and managing security capabilities might have a competitive advantage.

If you too wonder about this and want to discuss potential options of addressing this question, join us for our November SAWG session.
