Course Description

When attempting to build an architecture that is considered secure, the architect must first understand the business environment the systems need to provide for, as well as the technical controls that are available to the Architect that can be called upon to address the threats against confidentiality, integrity and availability.
These three main tenets of security – confidentiality, integrity and availability – sit at the heart of all IT security work. However, the job of the Architect is as much aligned to the needs of the business as it is to the technical aspects of architecture. This is not suggesting that the IA Architect should not be technical, as a technical person can often discharge the responsibilities of an IA Architect, however, that person must first be aware of the bigger business picture prior to developing a technical solution.
This is exactly what the IA Architecture syllabus is all about – explaining to the candidate what it takes to be an IA Architect and how that differs from being a technical or administrative (non-technical, such as policy writing, risk assessments, etc.) security subject matter expert.
IA Architecture is not just about preventing specific attacks. Instead it is about providing a multi-layered set of defences against different kinds of attack by implementing the most appropriate and cost-effective security controls.
