Enabling Through-Life ISMS Value

06 Jun 2019, 14:00 - 14:25

Technology Showcase

The SABSA Methodology is well regarded for Enterprise Security Architecture, but how can it benefit the implementation and operation of a security program within an organisation? 

Using a case study, we will outline the creation of a lifecycle for an Information Security Management System, and address the implementation of an holistic approach for managing information through-life. 

An ISMS should address information risks with a top-down approach into the specific Information Technology areas and provide assurance that risk owners can make informed business decisions. We will address each phase of the SABSA Lifecycle: Strategy & Planning, Design, Implement, and Manage & Measure, showing the Leadership and Governance activities required to execute security processes which meet organisational objectives.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Take a holistic approach to developing an ISMS
  2. Understand and apply the SABSA Lifecycle to your ISMS
  3. Traceably provide security value to the enterprise
  4. Allow risk owners to make informed decisions
  5. Provide assurance that your security program supports enterprise objectives
