SABSA is the world’s leading open security architecture framework and methodology. SABSA is a top-to-bottom framework to conceive, conceptualize, design, implement and manage security in a business-driven model. SABSA empowers the organization to do business as it needs and wants to do, while ensuring that it is secure and fully enabled. SABSA readily aligns with and integrates other best-practice frameworks such as COBIT, TOGAF, NIST, ISO 27001 and ITIL.

The SABSA Overview Seminar introduces attendees to the SABSA methodology, its core frameworks, concepts, models and techniques.
