Defence In Depth

The point of defence in depth is that it avoids a single point of failure and that supplementary controls working together increase the combined effectiveness of controls.

Might include some or all of the following.
  • Physical security (linked previously)
  • Policies & Procedures (linked previously)
  • Personnel security
  • Organisational Culture (linked previously)
  • Document Security
  • Audit Trails
  • Business Continuity (linked previously)
