Presentation Title: X.805 Standard
Presentation Details:

Network security should be designed around a strong and flexible security framework, coupled with appropriate security tools, standardized protocols and security infrastructure. Naturally, in a multivendor environment, no end-to-end security solution can be achieved without standards. The Bell Labs Security Model, which has been adopted by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as ITU-T X.805, uniquely identifies 72 key security areas that are evaluated by Lucent Worldwide Services security consultants, to assess, plan and implement security solutions appropriate for the organisation’s business. The security framework has been adopted by ISO on 1 February 2006 as part 2 of the International Standard ISO/IEC 18028. This presentation shall explore on how this standard can help organisations to secure their network more effectively with a proven methodology.
