About the Open Group:
The Open Group is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium, whose vision of Boundaryless Information Flow™ will enable access to integrated information, within and among enterprises, based on open standards and global interoperability.
The plenary will be folowed by parallel tracks that will cover key security challenges, illustrated with case studies:
- the role of the Security Architect and information technologists in creating enterprise architectures within a governance team that also includes business policy makers, corporate legal, corporate policy, risk management, auditor, and business management stakeholders - to balance competing demands in ways which achieve the overall business goals.
- the adoption of SCA architectures in the enterprise, the use of Web 2.0 technologies and applications in the neterprise, and the impact of both of tese developments on security architectures.
- the results of Open Group market research on important IT security issues, providing insight into the most pressing areas of need in terms of guidance, best practices, and standards development in the area of security.
