Does your current IT network have one, two, or multi-layers of security in place? Do you know what layered security is and what it prevents from entering your organization’s systems?
If you’re not sure, are you convinced your security could easily protect your company from a cyberattack? Blake discusses layered security in today’s video.
As you saw in the video, layered security is multiple blockades permanently set in place. Some are stronger than others, with additional strength and protection the farther you go.
For instance, you enter your password to access an online account, like your bank. That’s your first layer. If that account has multi-layered authentication enabled, that’s the second layer.
Let’s take it a step further. You’ve entered your password, then responded to multi-layered authentication, but to access a deeper level, you must swipe an ID card; that’s the 3rd layer.
The layered security design is to slow down, delay, or block unauthorized access, entrance, or threat at every level. The purpose is to protect your organization’s most vulnerable areas.
The best-layered security practice follows the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework. That Framework is your guide to stronger cybersecurity protection.
The foundation of the Framework follows five crucial functions and three main components. The functions are Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. The components are the Core, Implementation Tiers, and Profiles.
That information follows strict guidelines, standards, and practices for your organization or company. This insight will reduce your cybersecurity risks and manage your systems more efficiently.
Implementing multi-layered security is your ultimate protection to defend your network from an intruder or cyberattack. To give you the upper hand, we’ve listed must-have security layers that secure your data and information and keep it away from cyber thieves.
Adding multiple layers defends your network and keeps intruders away. Those barriers protect your IT system and secure your infrastructure. Without them, your business or organization remains vulnerable to a cyberattack.
