If there's one thing to be learned from the ongoing parade of catastrophic data breaches in recent years, it's that no wall is ever high enough. No matter how much you invest in physical security and network protection, someone will eventually get through. In fact, the more valuable your data, the more certain you can be that data thieves or foreign agents will break through your perimeter. Despite evidence to the contrary, many organizations still take the view that "more is always better," layering on new types of network and physical protection whenever possible. This approach can produce impressive- looking lists of physical defenses and network safeguards, but it can also consume excessive resources and divert attention from more- immediate threats. 22 | THE DATA CENTER JOURNAL
