Invest in a layered approach to cyber security before you get hacked, not after.
Keeping your IT infrastructure and data safe is paramount to the success of your business. With cyber-attacks becoming increasingly more sophisticated, it’s really important to stay ahead when it comes to your cyber security, but how?
We always recommend a layered approach to your cyber security.
A layered approach to cybersecurity is what it says on the tin. It involves implementing multiple layers of security measures to protect your organisation’s digital assets from various types of cyber threats. Each layer of security is designed to provide a different level of protection against cyber-attacks and the different layers work together to create a robust and effective cybersecurity system.
Think of your cyber security like a layered cake (everybody likes cake!). Your base layer is about protecting your PCs. This could be the likes of anti-malware and anti-spam. Your middle layer is the protection of your gateways, with the help of firewalls – which must be configured properly by an expert to ensure their effectiveness. Then, you’ve got your top layer, which is your staff. This is where you’ll introduce multi-factor authentication and threat simulations.
The layered approach is beneficial for several reasons. First, it provides multiple levels of defence against cyber threats, making it much harder for attackers to breach your systems. Second, the approach is flexible and adaptable, allowing you to customise your security measures to suit your specific needs. Finally, a layered approach helps to reduce the risk of a single point of failure in your cybersecurity system, as even if one layer is compromised, there are still other layers in place to protect against attacks.
