Architecture Risk Management


A Tool for Architecture Risk Management & Governance

Enterprise Architects, Risk Managers and Chief Information Security Officers (CSOs/CISOs) monitor the processes, applications, and infrastructure which supports business goals. They oversee risk registers and present risk analysis using security standards to strengthen governance.

Security Risk Scoring & Scenario Analysis

Architecture Risk Register & Risk Analysis

Use ABACUS as a powerful part of your armory for preventative risk management. Set up:

  • Application Catalogs, Business Capability Maps  and Risk Matrix views
  • Security Risk Scoring: a function of probability and impact of risk for key enterprise systems
  • Connect data from a wide range of technology and business sources using ABACUS integrations and API
  • Set up models and diagrams for disaster recovery (DR), business continuity planning (BCP) and enterprise security and information assets
  • Automate risk analysis and metrics, so they can be monitored and reported regularly

Architecture Governance and Risk 

Metrics and dashboards in ABACUS help monitor whether planned changes expose any additional risks or affect service continuity.

This unique traceability is due to the centralized and connected nature of the ABACUS repository which uses graph database technology.

Architects can use the data and models to design resilient systems, spot weaknesses and make informed recommendations.


Frameworks for Risk, Security & Scenario Analysis 

Architects can use existing data and models to react intelligently to future scenarios.

Popular tools and frameworks to use as part of risk analysis include:

Enterprise Architect’s Guide to Cloud Cost & Risk Management

A key skillset for enterprise architects in the 2020s is cloud cost and risk management. How can your team predict and balance costs and navigate security risks? In this webinar, co-hosted with the Open Group, we discuss:

  • Tracking cloud spend: automating cost calculations with integrations and algorithms
  • Simple risk-registers to guide resource allocation
  • How to use quick gap and dependency analysis to identify pitfalls
  • Deciding which cloud migration strategies are best

Originally Presented with The Open Group

Use ABACUS to:

  • Provide the first line of defence for cyber vigilance
  • Design resilient systems, spot weaknesses and make informed recommendations
  • ABACUS also offers truly cloud-based enterprise modeling and the ability to future-proof enterprise models via a flexible graph-database back-end.
