Defense in depth: SSCP Cert Prep: 6 Networks and Communications Security
Defense in depth: SSCP Cert Prep: 6 Networks and Communications Security

The defense in depth principle states that organizations should use multiple, overlapping security controls to achieve the same control objective. This is a layered approach to security and protects against the failure of any single security control. If one control fails, there is still another control designed to achieve the same objective standing in its place. In this video, learn the importance of a layered approach to security and how to build a defense in depth strategy.
