Cyber-security is a lot like military strategy. Both involve a battle of wills between adversaries that includes the use of force. It’s no wonder why cyber-security practices often borrow from military tactics.

Defense in depth is more than just a military strategy. It’s also a useful approach for protecting IT environments. It acknowledges that adversaries, through ever-evolving tactics and brute force, will eventually overrun the outer-most layer of defense. For this reason, it’s necessary to have additional layers of defense in place to anticipate and mitigate lost ground.
