Episode 8 of the IT Security Pubcast.

IT Security Architecture is an often poorly understood component of any IT Security strategy. In this episode of the Pubcast we interview Malcolm MacDonald, the Chief Architect at Airports South Africa to discuss it, and the pitfalls that befall the inexperienced architect.

Architects have to both derive architectures and assist designers and implementers to ensure that new projects conform.

Malcolm MacDonald, the Chief Architect at Airports South Africa came into the studio to discuss these issues and to share his views on how one makes security Architectures work.
