Determine the internal
To achieve the above goals often involves a
large number of parties working together.
These are the internal
who interact together in the business process to achieve the goals defined
in its scope.
These can be optionally categorised as departmental or system:
|Departmental Stakeholders represent the major business units
taking part in the business process.|
|System Stakeholders are the system building blocks the
internal stakeholders use to fulfil their objectives. By showing these
in the same model as departmental stakeholders, an integrated approach
showing both system and human collaboration is achieved. If the focus of
modelling is not on system engineering, these can be omitted.|
Typically for security there are a large
number of internal stakeholders, as shown in the following example:
Figure 2: Internal
When “internal” and “external” is used this is in reference to the
business process and not with reference to your company. Often with
regards to security customers have their part to play in the end-to-end
process so should be considered “internal”.
