7 Layers of cyber security
1: MISSION-CRITICAL Assets
This is the data you need to protect.
2: Data Security
Data security controls protect the storage and transfer of data.
3: Application Security
Applications security controls protect access to an application, an application’s access to your mission critical assets, and the internal security of the application.
4: Endpoint Security
Endpoint security controls protect the connection between devices and the network.
5: Network Security
Network security controls protect an organization’s network and prevent unauthorized access of the network.
6: Perimeter Security
Perimeter security controls include both the physical and digital security methodologies that protect the business overall.
7: The Human Layer
Humans are the weakest link in any cybersecurity posture. Human security controls include phishing simulations and access management controls that protect mission critical assets from a wide variety of human threats, including cyber criminals, malicious insiders, and negligent users.
