Architecture Design

Implementing the right security architecture

Thanks to continuing digital transformation and increasing connectivity, both products and, IT and OT  systems are becoming more exposed to all manner of cyber attacks.

In response, organisations must implement security controls to protect their products, their systems architecture and assets from threats. These controls must maintain confidentiality, integrity and availability.

At the same time, they must focus on robust system design, ensuring that security controls are correctly implemented, robust and well-tested.
