Dynamic, increasingly complex environments are rich hunting grounds for bad actors and cyber criminals. Attackers look for any opportunity to steal data, plant ransomware, or install evasive malware for longer-term campaigns to achieve their end-goals. Forty percent of security breaches are now indirect, as threat actors target the weak links within (software) supply chains or wider business ecosystem.
This white paper examines how to adopt a defense-in-depth strategy that addresses three fundamental components to any security strategy:
- People: getting them to be part of the solution to securing access, not part of the problem
- Processes: establishing repeatable, predictable best practices that continue to build security into the business
- Technology: implementing security solutions, specifically those securing access and identity through preventative controls and detection methods, that work with other components to optimize protection and productivity.
