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.

Session Topic: Security Architecture Development in Agile Environments

For our September session we will be revisiting a topic that warrants more than one session. We will be looking at the challenge of developing a Security Architecture in an Agile Environment. While agile development is certainly a requirement in a lot of corporate environments it poses its particular challenges when it comes to aligning it with a more rigid security architecture function. In this session we want to look at a case study and the implications of Agile for Security Architecture development. We will explore the issues, how to overcome them and what benefits we could gain from better alignining developing security architecture to agile environments or such that claim to be agile.
