This paper from the Open Group, documents an approach to enhance the TOGAF enterprise architecture methodology with the SABSA security architecture approach to create one holistic architecture methodology.


It highlights the following:


  • Overview of TOGAF and SABSA integration – why bolster TOGAF with security architecture and why use SABSA?
  • Operational risk and its relevance to enterprise architecture – why incorporating the concept of operational risk is essential to modern enterprise architecture design.
  • A central role for requirements management – how to perform requirements management using SABSA Business Attribute Profiling.
  • Creating an enterprise architecture with integrated security – how to align SABSA concepts to the TOGAF ADM.
  • TOGAF benefits for SABSA practitioners – how to enhance SABSA-based projects by introducing TOGAF concepts.


The paper is intended to guide enterprise and security architects in fully integrating security and risk management into enterprise-level architectures, to stimulate review comments and inform the global architecture community of proposed new content from the SABSA perspective for a future edition of the TOGAF standard.
