With the growth of information technology (IT) systems, network security is rapidly becoming a critical business concern. Due to the interconnectivity of IT systems, a comprehensive description of all of the key elements and relationships that make up an organization’s network security is needed, which can be referred as network security architecture. The value of this architecture is often questioned by organizations in terms of its practical application. This paper has presents a new approach to the network security architecture in order to better describe and instantiate the Zachman Framework capabilities. The network security architecture of academic centers is discussed as a case study to show how a conceptual model can be applied to a real organization.
