The SABSA Certification framework is a comprehensive, competencies-based testing programme that provides employers and peers with assurance and confidence that employees, job candidates, service providers and contractors have the professional capability to meet the needs of your organization to design, deliver and manage enterprise security architectures. It tests professional proficiency in all aspects of enterprise security as delivered by the SABSA method.
The framework is based upon world-leading educational best practices and consists of:
- A comprehensive Body of Knowledge;
- A detailed multi-layer Competency Development Framework constructed using the leading skills development framework Bloom’s Taxonomy of Cognitive Levels;
- Career Roadmaps that recognize the range of specialisms increasingly required as a career develops, and define clear paths of career progression;
- Three certification levels that indicate stages of proficiency from knowledge and understanding of the subject up to demonstration of the advanced competencies required of a master of the profession.
The competencies framework and its associated training programme go much further than knowledge-based certification efforts and are designed to develop and enhance professional capabilities in a measurable way whilst focusing on the specialist areas of the candidate’s chosen career path.
The SABSA Foundation Modules (F1 & F2) are The SABSA Institute’s official starting point for developing Security Architecture Competencies. They are designed to create a broad-spectrum of knowledge and understanding of the SABSA method, its frameworks, concepts, models & techniques. Theories and concepts are put to the test in ‘proof-of-concept- style case study exercises and workshops so that candidates can understand how SABSA is best applied to meet the challenges of the real world.
