Security Architecture Assessment
A cybersecurity architecture comprises the technologies, policies and processes aimed at defending an organization from the cybersecurity risks it faces and ensuring compliance with regulatory frameworks it needs to conform to. A sound architecture requires an understanding of the threat landscape, the risks these pose to the organization, and the technologies and best practices available to address them.
A Complex Problem
The digital footprint of today’s organizations has become increasingly complex, comprising traditional endpoints, mobile devices, BYOD, work-from-home, shared workspaces, virtualization technologies, cloud and IoT. Modes of interaction extend beyond email to a variety of communication channels and social media platforms. Suppliers and customers connect to an organization’s digital environment bringing their own security demands and challenges.
All this translates to an exceptionally large attack surface. MITRE documents 156 attack techniques and 272 sub-techniques for the enterprise environment and 85 attack techniques for mobile. No wonder there are about 70 different cybersecurity product categories offered by hundreds of vendors to address these challenges.
New regulations and compliance regimes, especially around privacy and data protection, demand conformance from all types of businesses with a digital footprint including startups and SMEs. Companies in the B2B space serving large enterprises are required by them to provide evidence of cybersecurity maturity – sometimes in the form of certifications.
All these factors make defining and implementing a sound security architecture a complex problem, but a problem that must be solved, nevertheless.
