Title: Integrating Risk and Security within a TOGAF® Enterprise Architecture
Version: (None)
Sticky: No

Dear Open Group Members,

I hereby announce the Company Review of the following Open Group Guide with The Open Group Security Forum as sponsor of the review:
Integrating Risk and Security within a TOGAF® Enterprise Architecture

This document is an Open Group Guide addressing how to integrate considerations of security and risk into an Enterprise Architecture. It provides guidance for security practitioners and Enterprise Architects who need to work with TOGAF, an Open Group Standard, to develop an Enterprise Architecture. It has been developed and approved by The Open Group Security Forum.

Integrating security and risk management in Enterprise Architecture strongly supports The Open Group vision of Boundaryless Information Flow™, by informing well-justified design decisions, which maximize business opportunity whilst minimizing business risk.

This Guide is structured as follows:

  • Chapter 1 provides a high-level introduction to this Guide, introducing the topic of Enterprise Security Architecture, how it relates to Enterprise Architecture, and how this Guide supports the TOGAF standard.
  • Chapter 2 describes the relationship with other IT security and risk standards.
  • Chapter 3 describes the concept of Enterprise Security Architecture in detail. It describes Information Security Management (ISM) and Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), two processes used by Security Architects.
  • Chapter 4 describes Security Architecture, which is a cross-cutting concern, pervasive through the whole Enterprise Architecture.
  • Chapter 5 explains in detail the core security concepts and how they can be applied for each phase of the TOGAF ADM.

The intended audience for this Guide is as follows:

  • Enterprise Architects, Security Architects

The review will commence on August 17, 2015 and end on September 14, 2015.

The (commenting but not balloting) review group will be The Open Group Security Forum, plus other forums, work groups and interested parties from The Open Group membership.

The recommendation formulating change request review group will be The Open Group Security Forum.

The balloting group consists of the members of The Open Group Security Forum.

For the benefit of those unfamiliar with The Open Group Standards Process Company Review, it is a formal process by which a document is approved for publication by The Open Group. You are invited to review and submit proposed changes ("Change Requests - CR") that would make the document acceptable to you. A formal ballot then decides which changes are accepted.
