Section 1:Security Architecture
This section gives you an overview of what cybersecurity architecture means: what it is, what it includes (and what it doesn't include), why it's useful, and what the role of a cybersecurity architect may encompass, depending on their focus and the organization they work in. The chapters in this section work through the origins of security architecture, common frameworks to architecture, and the evolution of the discipline.
By understanding why cybersecrity provides value, the architect can then ensure that they are adding the most value to their organization. The first chapter in this section outlines the business value that the cybersecurity architecture process brings about, while the second helps them understand the business and, by extension, the differing needs of different organizations. Since the needs and context of organizations differ, the architect should begin with an understanding of the business and adapt their role in it to ensure that the work they do will be viewed necessary, welcome, and valuable to the organization based on what the organization does, how it does it, and its particular set of needs.
