About this book

Stepping up to become a cybersecurity architect is (CA) no mean feat since it requires both upskilling and changing the way you view cybersecurity altogether. The Cybersecurity Architect’s Handbook is a comprehensive guide that introduces skills needed to become a security architect, lays out a path for cybersecurity engineers to become architects, and shares the best practices to enhance the skills of existing security architects.

After a brief introduction to the role, this book will help you understand the day-to-day challenges of a security architect, illustrated with practical examples. You'll learn to identify the weaknesses of your company’s security posture, as well as find ways to improve and update the systems hardware and software security. You'll also get to grips with setting user policies and protocols, monitoring, and enforcing them. This will help you understand countermeasures that protect the system when an unauthorized user attempts to gain access to the system. To prepare you for the road ahead and build on your existing skills, the book will finish off with some of the best tips and practices that will help you succeed in your career as a security architect.

By the end of the book, you will be efficiently able to both plan and execute your organization's security.
