The peer review process depends on the size of the project. For large, complex and challenging systems, a formal governance review is required (Schoenfield, 2015). Exam boards will take care of this. Review committees may also be referred to as board-level technical committees. They are often indicative of an organization’s ability to respond to security threats (Higgs, Pinsker, Smith & Young, 2016). Under the supervision of senior security experts, the review board is tasked with reviewing the security architecture of the system prior to its implementation. Your approval is also required before the architecture can be implemented. In some cases, the Chief Security Architect will cast a “No” vote with the intent of preventing the implementation of the architecture when they believe that not enough has been done to address a particular attack surface. In addition to this, the board can also contain pre-deployment checkpoints. If the project does not meet the deliverables required by the checkpoint, it cannot proceed.
