What does it take to become a Security Architect?
Today our students designed an internet “zoning” model to protect sensitive data. Thank you Riccardo Oosterbaan for sharing your knowledge!
Security Architects focus on creating designs that are usually reproducible to address not only necessities in network security, but also potential risks. The fact that Security Architects specialize on making reproducible models for security allows the same designs to be re-used multiple times, creating a standardized security system.
Security Architects specialize in understanding relationships and dependencies between components within IT architecture. However, security controls that these individuals work in go beyond IT. Security Architects also consider aspects such as financial, legal, and regulatory obligations.
