The Open Group's Enterprise Architecture Practitioners Conference in Budapest will open with a plenary day focusing upon how different aspects of Security Architecture all contribute vital roles in delivering safe and secure enterprise architectures. We need these architectures to deliver effective information security infrastructures that will match continually increasing business demands for secure IT operations in our open, Internet-driven, globally networked world.

- the concept of a governance team that includes security architects and information

- a framework for the security architect to use in working with a governance team to balance competing demands in ways which achieve the business goals
- deperimeterization and how this will change the internal topology of most
