Applying cybersecurity in a SATCOM environment requires a layered security approach, or Defense-in-Depth as it is sometimes called. As recognized by the National Security Agency (NSA), Defense-in-Depth is an effective means to protect networks by presenting multiple obstacles for would-be hackers. This approach combines various strategies to mitigate threats, protecting an organization’s data and SATCOM network.

The critical layers of a Defense-in-Depth SATCOM network include detect, mitigate, prevent and predict. A review of these layered solutions provides insight to the cybersecurity approach.
