About this book
Security threats are a significant problem for information technology companies today. This book focuses on how to mitigate these threats by using security standards and provides ways to address associated problems faced by engineers caused by ambiguities in the standards. The security standards are analysed, fundamental concepts of the security standards presented, and the relations to the elementary concepts of security requirements engineering (SRE) methods explored. Using this knowledge, engineers can build customised methods that support the establishment of security standards.
Standards such as Common Criteria or ISO 27001 are explored and several extensions are provided to well-known SRE methods such as Si*, CORAS, and UML4PF to support the establishment of these security standards. Through careful analysis of the activities demanded by the standards, for example the activities to establish an Information Security Management System (ISMS) in compliance with the ISO 27001 standard, methods are proposed which incorporate existing security requirement approaches and patterns.
Understanding Pattern and Security Requirements engineering methods is important for software engineers, security analysts, and other professionals that are tasked with establishing a security standard, as well as researchers who aim to investigate the problems with establishing security standards. The examples and explanations in this book are designed to be understandable by all these readers.

“The book presents the results of comprehensive research aimed at creating a method for threat analysis and the mitigation of risks through the comparative study of existing standards. … The book is interesting for practitioners who have to create enterprise-wide security policies and standards. It is worth reading for researchers who deal with the formal and semi-formal modeling of the security domain.” (Bálint Molnár, Computing Reviews, September, 2015)
