Architectural vulnerabilities arise when a complex system is improperly designed. In this video, Mike Chapple explains the impact of architectural and design weaknesses, vulnerable business processes, and the result of system sprawl and undocumented assets.
- [Lecturer] Architectural vulnerabilities arise…when a complex system is improperly designed.…They may create fundamental flaws in a system…that are very difficult to remediate.…IT architecture is set of well-defined practices…and processes used to build complex, technical systems.…IT architects function in roles similar…to that of traditional architects.…Instead of putting together complex buildings,…they are putting together different technologies…in a way that meets business requirements.…
Security is one of the most important of those requirements.…The key to avoiding security weaknesses…in architecture and system designs…is to incorporate security requirements early…making them design criteria,…rather than after-the-fact concerns.…One recipe for disaster is designing a system first,…and then trying to bolt on security after-the-fact.…When you're considering the security of a system,…don't just look at the technical architecture and design.…
You also need to think about the complex interweaving…of business processes and people involved…
