Defense-in-Depth Strategies for Industrial Cybersecurity
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness month, and we did our part to bring awareness to cybersecurity as it applies to industrial control systems.
About our topic:
Most industrial security standards written today call for a “Defense-in-Depth” approach. Defense-in-Depth is a coordinated use of various security methods to provide a complex and multi-layered system that is harder to penetrate that a single barrier. This methodology implements security features from device hardening, application security, computer hardening, network security, physical limitations, and implementation of policies and procedures within the organization.
