Enterprise Process Security Architecture – a security-by-design approach for postal operators

Tuesday, 2. February 2021 - 12:00

Supply chain security deals with the protection of supply chain assets (people, equipment, facilities etc.) against threats from theft, smuggling and sabotage. That comprises management and design activities in order to ensure an effective integration of security into the organization’s landscape. This talk presents a security-enhanced business process modelling notation based on BPMN that supports the explicit modelling and evaluation of security elements. The connection of business processes to IT-systems and organizational measures is shown in an outlook on an adapted enterprise architecture to consider security at design time. The work is presented with a case example of postal operators.

SpeakerMichael Middelhoff is a PhD-student in Information Systems. He is member of the Supply Chain Management Chair of Prof. Dr. Hellingrath at the Department of Information Systems of the University of Münster. His research focuses on security-enhanced architecture management and process modelling in the context of postal operators.
