CISA has published an infographic to emphasize the importance of implementing network segmentation—a physical or virtual architectural approach that divides a network into multiple segments, each acting as its own subnetwork, to provide additional security and control that can help prevent or minimize the impact of a cyberattack.

CISA encourages network architects, defenders, and administrators to review the infographic, Layering Network Security Through Segmentation, and implement its recommendations where possible.
