Security architects design and implement secure architectures and translate business processes and risk into policy and implementation rules. In this course, you'll explore designing secure application and data architectures. First, you'll examine the history of development, the role of the application architect, and application architecture goals. Next, you'll learn about disciplines related to application architecture, as well as Service-oriented Architecture and its standards. You'll move on to learn about modular framework development, authentication, patching, and vulnerability testing. Next, you'll examine data architecture, data classification, data privacy, and database security. Finally, you'll learn about encryption and big data, as well as data architecture analysis and influences.
