Event Date / Time: 11th June 2019 – 5:30pm to 8:00pm (AEDT)


Most organisations have a consistent need for adjusting to changing market conditions and new customer demands if they want to survive in the long run. As business objectives and priorities are being adjusted as in response to the market, organisations need to adapt and fine tune their business capabilities, including their security services. Security service gaps need to be identified and immature services need to be optimised, in order to survive the constant battle for supremacy.

From a security perspective, one of the challenges for organisations often appears to be that they have immature processes in place to quickly adjust their business, including their security services. While SABSA provides a mature methodology for the delivery of security architecture, organisations often struggle to implement a framework around it that optimises the delivery process itself. Further tools and processes need to be developed to address this issue and assist organisations in maturing and adjusting their security services faster and in a more efficient way. One of these tools could be security capability model that complements the idea of a security service catalogue by providing a pre-defined security service taxonomy through the definition of meaningful security capability domains.

In this session we will be looking at a an organisation independent security capability model that defines a well-structured set of security capability domains and associated security capabilities. This model, as part of an Enterprise Security Architecture Framework, can assist larger organisations in more systematically assessing, communicating and transforming their security services landscape. The presented security capability model is based on experience gained through the implementation of similar models at various organisations across different industries. It has also been analysed against various control frameworks and their grouping of controls, which we also touch on.

At the end of this session, participants should be able to understand the value of such a reference model and how it can be utilised within an organisation.

The key takeaway from this session will hopefully be a new viewpoint of looking at the importance of security governing structures when faced with the challenge of more systematically and efficiently maturing an organisations security architecture service landscape.
