Cybersecurity has been an urgent concern for businesses over the past several years, especially considering the millions of dollars lost due to data breaches and ransomware attacks. Furthermore, looming threats have prompted organizations to seek novel methods to enhance their security, many of which have delivered mixed results.
In recent times, a multi-layered approach called Defense in Depth (DiD) has been heralded as one of the best safeguards available against all manner of vulnerabilities.

What Does DiD Offer?

Online providers have doubled their efforts to combat cybercrime by implementing several security measures simultaneously for customer data protection.
From an organization’s standpoint, DiD operates in that same framework by triggering multiple layers of defense synchronously in order to prevent activity that could jeopardize sensitive information and/or damage network infrastructure.

Some essential DiD features include:

Firewall Protection
A firewall is set between the internet and your business’s LAN connection to monitor incoming and outgoing network traffic, with the express goal of barring any unwanted access to your network on the basis of predefined rules.

EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response)

EDR looks for any suspicious activity coming from any of the devices connected to the organization’s network (the endpoint) and generates alerts to security analysts so that they can investigate and solve any issues and security glitches.

Intrusion Prevention and Detection Systems
These systems automate network analysis tasks and block potential incoming attacks as soon as they encounter hints of odd behavior.

Technical
This area regards software and hardware protection systems and measures, including data encryption, IAM (Identity and Access Management), VPNs (Virtual Private Networks), IDS (Intrusion Detection Systems), patch management, and others of that ilk.

Administrative (Management Security)
This area encompasses business policies and procedures to be followed by personnel and management for the attainment of the company’s security goals. Everything from onboard protocols to data processing procedures, information security policies, and risk management frameworks, among many others.

Physical
This comprises anything that averts unauthorized entry into the business’s physical workstations. This category encapsulates CCTV, lockers, biometric scanners, fences, keycards, picture IDs, security guards, and similar.

All of this ought to be laid out in detail in a proper DiD strategy. Since not every organization operates in the same fashion, a competent IT service provider should weigh in and help devise one suited for your business needs.
