XYPRO – Risk Management through Layered Security

Layered security takes the military concept of “Defense in Depth” and applies it to cyber security. The idea is simple; a single solution may stop a certain type of attack, but if an attack does get through, the layers behind them are set up to continuously slow down and stop the attacker. For example, a castle may have a moat, a protected door, a perimeter wall, guards and guard towers, inner walls and a highly secure, highly protected safe that contains the crown jewels. The same strategy should be applied to how critical digital assets are secured.
