The Role of Security and Audit in Driving and Sustaining Competitive Advantage
The Business Model of Security was originally developed with my very first “shared services” delivery model back in 1994, and further refined as I worked with other organizations throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s.
In 2001, I began assembling the Business Model of Security into a cohesive method for delivering quality decision support for enterprise stakeholders into a package of tools and methods with the hope of replicating the idea further.
This material continued to grow as (ISC)2 invited me to develop a curriculum for their Security Leadership Series and was first presented to this wider audience in Seattle, WA on February 5th, 2009. Since that day, we have gone on to deliver this curriculum to thousands of security and audit professionals in over two dozen US cities and to hundreds more people via the web. It has continued to evolve based upon the near constant research we are doing in this field and the feedback from the community.
Through the process of developing and maintaining the curriculum, we amass quite a lot of ancillary materials that do not make into the final cut for presentation. Historically, we have bundled this material up and made it available on CD or USB drive for free to anyone who attended the live event. In this case, considering the vast amount of information and the continued development of it, we have decided to try something new and publish our research notes and our background materials online for the community to consume and comment on. We are hoping that this allows the conversations started in the live events to spill over into the virtual world and continue to flourish.
We look forward to your feedback and insights,
Brandon Dunlap and The Brightfly team
