Re: You Will Always Defend "In Depth".
Agreed. But defense in depth isn't static. It should also incoroprate new technologies such as UEBA incorporating as many threads of information as possible (Packet data, End point information, AD integration, sandboxing and global malware checking that will be more adaptive to the ever morphing threat.

You Will Always Defend "In Depth".
There will always be "depth" in defense.   It may not be as "geographic" as the term normally implies.  But creating standoff between most critical assets and the bad thing is job one.  Ergo, depth.

 

So don't get hung up on the noun-phrase "defense in depth" and keep focus on the action of defending, creating "depth" to either trade space for time, and give defenders time to harden, reposition or otherwise protect assets, while making adversary's job much tougher.
