5.9.2  Systems Architecture

Hardware and software combine to become a system. Both maintaining and securing a system requires detailing how a system was designed with sub-components detailing hardware and software, so this information should be carefully documented. MIT has a white paper titled “A fractal Representation for Systems”466. A template for software project management is listed in the footnote467.

Include in this documentation items like:

  • Maps of the company’s networks, showing physical connectivity and network addresses.

  • Descriptions of what each computer is used for.

  • Information about the hardware installed in each machine.

  • Information about other devices used on the network.

  • A list of the software installed on each machine (including versions).

  • a list of the computers each application depends on (such as “database server 1 with customer data”, “database server 30 containing geographical data”, “application server PAR12 containing the FINS application”)
