There are many aspects to security within an IT stack, all of them are important, but protecting data, systems and production access, and logging what engineers are doing against different environments is quite plainly a necessity not a luxury. For many firms it is a regulatory obligation.

A curious aspect of IT Architecture is that there is no single definition of Architecture. This causes real problems on projects. The reason is that Architecture and Design, are the pre-requisites for good IT systems. In Waterfall we have the ‘Big UpFront Design’ or BUFD, which is inefficient, unrealistic and untethered to technical reality. For example, how will I know what my real design is based on implementation details in 6 months? Agile, proposes an iterative design creation, with minimum and sometimes no real design made up front. This is likewise problematic.

Agile is not only a delivery method of course, but an approach to project management and deployment. Agile stresses Proof of Concepts, sometimes called ‘Minimum Viable Product’ or MVP, which are hands-on attempts to assess technologies, concepts and first designs. The design process is never ‘skipped’ in Agile, it is just not as formalized and sequential as the Waterfall theology. MVPs or POCs are practical attempts to see what works, and what does not. They are not the theoretical models of Waterfall liturgy, but rational attempts to investigate if the chosen technologies, platforms, or services, do actually work in real life. Design

Amazon Web Services Cloud Computing

SFA is hosted on the Amazon Web Services Cloud Computing platform aws.amazon.com. Cloud Computing is essentially the virtualization of IT compute resources, and their remote usage. AWS is the market leading public cloud infrastructure. AWS is able to provide almost unlimited scalability, resilience, fail-over, and recovery. With over 100 Global data centers and many associated virtualized services, AWS allows a platform to be deployed to a global audience with reduced latency, and improved performance and throughput.

System Security

Security is a primary design principle and concern around Cloud Computing. AWS has been audited and certified by many dozens of security agencies and governmental agencies. Policies, logging and monitoring are built in to AWS cloud platform solutions to provide a dashboard and overview of the environment and any threats to data and applications.

Key parts of the SFA security model:

  • Network
  • Anti-Malware/Virus
  • Perimeter
  • Application Attack
  • Disaster Recovery
  • High Availability
  • Backup
Key principles: Zero Trust, Zero Touch, Encrypt everything. SFA’s infrastructure conforms to the above list of security best-practices.

In summary the SFA platform has:

  • Automated data backup
  • Automated Machine Image (application) backup
  • High Availability and Failover within AWS
  • Disaster Recovery within AWS
  • Disaster Recovery outside of AWS with Azure Cloud
  • Automated Monitoring and Logging
  • Security of access and all data

The system is composed of Administration and End User portals.

The End user portal is an online questionnaire accessed by members of the organization. The survey (questionnaire) is user id and password specific for protection purposes. The responses are saved per page. Users cannot continue to the next page unless the question is answered, which takes care of missing responses.

There is no real limit to how many end-users can use the survey during a defined period (example one day). The real challenge from a technological perspective, lies in the concurrent employee usage. Given current requirements and general usage patterns over 100 concurrent users (users acting on the system at exactly the same time, during the same minute); is supported as a threshold. The platform can be extended with various techniques to accommodate more concurrent users as necessary.
