Architecting Secure Systems - A Design-Led Life Cycle approach

Think Tank - 2:30 pm - 2:55 pm

Executives are currently facing a difficult challenge in terms of designing and maintaining robust and secure systems. The challenges come not just from technology but from people and process. Designing for secure systems means binding different generational thinking into a single consistent approach. These differences if not managed holistically lead to lack of understanding and conflict in a lot of cases, conflict that leaders must learn how to overcome. This is achieved by instilling a more rigorous process oriented approach to design. 


  • Designing for Secure Systems involves tight coupling of people that are from different generations and have had different life experiences which has given them different outlooks 
  • Each group has specific and unique strengths that can and should be brought to bear to improve the enterprise 
  • Establishing a variety of frameworks (technical and managerial) enable groups to bind together into a cohesive unit
