Enterprise information security architecture (EISA) is the practice of applying a comprehensive and rigorous method for describing a current and/or future structure and behavior for an organization's security processes, information security systems, personnel and organizational sub-units, so that they align with the organization's core goals and strategic direction. Although often associated strictly with information security technology, it relates more broadly to the security practice of business optimization in that it addresses business security architecture, performance management and security process architecture as well.

Enterprise information security architecture is becoming a common practice within the financial institutions around the globe. The primary purpose of creating an enterprise information security architecture is to ensure that business strategy and IT security are aligned. As such, enterprise information security architecture allows traceability from the business strategy down to the underlying technology.

Enterprise information security architecture is a key component of the information security technology governance process at any organization of significant size. More and more companies[citation needed] are implementing a formal enterprise security architecture process to support the governance and management of IT. However, as noted in the opening paragraph of this article it ideally relates more broadly to the practice of business optimization in that it addresses business security architecture, performance management and process security architecture as well. Enterprise Information Security Architecture is also related to IT security portfolio management and metadata in the enterprise IT sense.

Information Security is an essential function in today’s business environment. Regulations such as SOX, HIPAA, GLB, and CA SB1386/AB1950 are continually raising the bar for corporate security standards. Data such as financial records, employee personal information, client lists and data, proprietary code, email, and web content must be secured to control business risk and maintain compliance.

Having periodic independent security assessments conducted is an IT best practice generally accepted as a required control measure to achieve SOX 404 IT compliance.
