Volatility and immaturity in security technology will continue to make enterprisewide technology architectures impractical through 2003. However, the need for a consistent approach, scalability, agility, and auditability will drive development of adaptive, top-down security architectures encompassing consistent policy frameworks, strong process orientation, service definitions, formal roles/responsibilities, and domain-specific technology standards (2002-03). Scalable technology architectures for security will evolve as a result of broader standards (2004-06).

Rulings by the Federal Trade Commission pertaining to privacy and security issues (e.g., against Eli Lilly and Microsoft) have focused not on monetary fines, but on the requirement that a "security program" be established and maintained to protect the privacy and confidentiality of (consumer) information. Meta Group interprets this as a precursor to (if not the equivalent of) requiring a security architecture, which Meta Group defines as a set of guiding principles and the resultant embodiment of those principles in the form of an orderly and comprehensive arrangement of security components (e.g., people, process, and technology).
