What Makes a Security Plan?

      Hello, and welcome back to my blog. This week, I would like to quickly discuss the levels that go into making a security plan. These types of plans are an important tool for IT departments and Cybersecurity Administrators to design a plan that will help protect or slow down an attack on the network.     Of course, security plans can vary from company to company; however, their purpose remains the same, with threats looming every day. With IT managers adjusting in response to the ever-changing threats, the created security plan must be designed to stop or slow down any attempt to breach network defenses. Below we will look at the principal components of a security plan and what they entail.    Separate Networks              As the name suggests, having more than one network can protect company assists from hackers and the like. The reason being is that having every computer on one network would lead to issues if that subsequent work were to fail, which would stop operati

A Look at Defense-in-Depth

What is Defense-in-Depth?                 Defense-in-Depth is the method to which multiple layers of defense protect a network. These defenses are intended to delay an attacker's attempt to further into a system but not stop them completely. By slowing down the attacker, the IT team has time to reacted and mitigate any damage to the network. The idea behind Defense-in-Depth stems from a military strategy that revolves around having a weaker perimeter defense and intentionally yielding space to buy time. In the case of cybersecurity, the approach here involves multiple layers of control but not give up any ground. Here is a video that can bring a little light on to the idea of Defense-in-Depth from Network Direction: Below is the topology of how Defense-in-Depth would potentially look like: Fig 1.
