The key benefits of the Defense-in-Depth program are the layered approach of security controls that complement each other’s functionality to cover weaknesses. This protects against redundancies, such as if security controls fail or have a vulnerability that can be exploited, an overlapping control may mitigate or protect against the failure. This layering of controls also allows for the Defense-in-Depth program to be phased in. By following the risk reduction roadmap in a phased manner, it strengthened and expanded the security coverage of the plant over time, allowing for safe and efficient adoption.
It also allowed plant personnel to get comfortable with each implemented security solution rather than learning a full suite of security solutions all at once. This phased approach allows more efficient use of security solutions and more willingness to use them with more profound knowledge of how to use each of them.
