SABSA stands for Sherwood Applied Business Security Architecture and is a new best practice method for obtaining information security solutions within an organization. It is being used by organizations and governments worldwide.

The SABSA model follows closely the work done by John A. Zachman in developing a model for Enterprise Architecture. SABSA is to Security Management what ITIL is to Service Management, PRINCE2 to Project Management and TOGAF to Enterprise Architecture.
