Defence in depth
The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB part of BRE Global) sets the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are applied in fire and security sectors around the world.
The Loss Prevention Standard (LSP 2082 : Issue 1.0), published by BRE Global in 2017, defines the term ‘defence in depth’ as: A security principle which if adopted will require an adversary to defeat a series of protective layers in sequence to defeat the overall system.’
