Layer 7 - Education
ADDITIONAL DETAILS ON THE 7 LAYERS OF MATURITY
We call this Layer Zero, because as IT professionals we cannot control your behavior. We simply use this layer to remind you of best practices.
This layer focuses on protecting what is important.
Protecting your internal network and communication.
As the internet and digital solutions grow, you have more accounts and passwords. This layer helps you to secure your online identity.
It is critical that you identify what devices you use and if they are secure. Consistency plays a big part in creating a secure environment.
Trust but verify via this layer.
Unfortunately, it is not a matter of if — but when — you will be compromised. Being prepared is critical.
Using what you've learned in layers 0-6, it is important to increase your security posture with additional education for our families.
