Security Engineering


Security engineering is a broad term that spans across several areas of security. From developing and implementing the security aspects during system design, to architecting systems that are designed specifically for security; organizations within the Federal Government perform security engineering techniques every day. Security engineering encompasses several aspects of security including:

  • Security Requirements Analysis
  • Security Architecture Design
  • Secure Coding Practices
  • Security Testing (IE Vulnerability Assessments, Penetration Testing, etc.)
  • Security Operations and Maintenance


Security engineering can provide organizations with the comfort of knowing that systems are designed with security in mind. It is important that systems are engineered in a way that meets applicable standards and regulations in order to stop attacks or protect from natural disasters. Whether organizations are designing web applications or physical systems, any system disruption or compromise can harm an organization or aid an enemy’s attack. Implementing strong security engineering techniques or designing systems that identify and deter an attack can be the difference between a hacker’s success and failure.
