Architecture and Design
Systems security architecture and design refers to the process of defining the structure and components of a secure system, as well as the methods and mechanisms used to protect it against potential threats. The goal of systems security architecture and design is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, scalability, and availability of data and resources within a system, as well as the privacy and security of users and other stakeholders.
The process of systems security architecture and design typically involves the following steps:
1. Threat modeling: Identifying potential threats to the system and evaluating their impact.
2. Risk assessment: Analyzing the potential consequences of security incidents and determining the likelihood of each threat occurring.
3. Security requirements: Defining the security goals and requirements of the system.
4. Security architecture: Defining the overall structure of the system and how security will be integrated into its components.
5. Security design: Defining the specific mechanisms and technologies that will be used to implement the security architecture.
6. Implementation: Building and deploying the secure system.
7. Testing and validation: Verifying that the system meets the security requirements and is secure against potential threats.
8. Maintenance and update: Regularly updating the system to address new threats and vulnerabilities.
