The session will include a case study to provide realistic examples of a Cyber Security Architecture and interdependencies between individual components of an organization tied to business, service, technology, data, and performance. The description of the governance model will include examples of how to leverage architecture to further embed Security into management processes related to: strategic planning, capital planning and budgeting and the system development life cycle (SDLC).
