Independent. Dynamic. Involved.

With Traxion’s Security by Design Setup, you test and improve your step-by-step plan for structurally integrating security into new software and IT solutions as well as into existing ones. This ‘security by design governance structure’ can then be included as standard in your internal and external IT projects.

Our Security by design services are aimed at optimally securing your data from the start of a change in your IT environment across the full range of people, processes and technology. Our experience is that this increases the control, flexibility and efficiency over data protection for your organization.


The Security by Design Setup provides a number of company-specific components for your organization, such as:

  • using architecture and IT security principles when selecting designs for new IT solutions in accordance with The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF).
  • overview of necessary governance bodies, with objectives, members/roles, input/output and mandate for each body.
  • business Risk Assessment template for assessing and documenting your risks
  • description of the approval process for projects and changes, and some IT security policies.


Organizations still have an insufficient handle on security, as can be seen from the explosive growth of incidents. In practice, it turns out that 75% of these incidents are caused by design and/or software flaws. At best, innovations are only tested for vulnerabilities after the fact, while it is more efficient to take safety requirements into account from the outset. Research shows that solving diagnostic security findings from the start is cheaper by a factor of 100 than after the fact.

Steps in the process

Traxion’s Security by Design Setup improves your step-by-step plan for the structural integration of security by means of:

  1. checklist interviews with a number of important stakeholders in your organization in order to identify which elements of the step-by-step plan have been fine-tuned and which have not
  2. development of the most important missing elements
  3. fine-tuning and securing of the improved steps.
