Why is it important to include security and privacy in an EA program and the documentation of EA components?

Category: Security and Privacy

The role of security and privacy within an EA program is best described as a comprehensive set of controls that pervade all architectural domains and are a key part of an organization’s risk management strategy. One can think of this as a vertical thread that weaves through all levels of the architecture. The thread metaphor is used (as opposed to a separate dedicated level) because security and privacy are most effective when they are integral to the enterprise’s strategic initiatives, business services, information flows, applications, and technology infrastructure.
