Enterprise Security Architecture Fundamentals Training

Learn how to turn security risks into business opportunities.

You are invited to participate in a private training course on Enterprise Security Architecture (ESA) Fundamentals from December 8-10, 2014. This three-day course features a hands-on, interactive environment designed to show information security professionals and executives how to build an effective and proven “business-driven” security program. 

What makes this course unique is that it doesn’t focus on security through technology alone. It also shows you how to integrate your organization's business objectives into your overall security plan. Great Enterprise Security Architecture protects organizations without limiting business performance — and that’s what this course will help you to achieve at a time when threats and attacks are growing more complex and dangerous every day. 

Taught by one of the only three SABSA Chartered Master Architects in North America, this course is ideal for security and risk management professionals, architects, IT and network practitioners, and executives wishing to understand how to build an effective and proven security program. 

Lessons Based on the World's Leading Security Framework

ESA Fundamentals is based on the Sherwood Applied Business Security Architecture (SABSA), the world's leading open security architecture framework and methodology. If your company sells internationally, it's important to understand SABSA security practices. 

This course is also in direct alignment with NIST guidelines on state-of-the-practice security controls in the U.S. The curriculum adapts other best practices and frameworks, as well, including TOGAF, ISO 27000 series, COBIT, and PCI-DSS.
