Layers are how we group published content. Instructions fit into Layers, as will updates about new threats, regulations, tools, and best practices. Each newsletter typically focuses on one Layer.

Making the best use of Layers

In our opinion, layers are best achieved one at a time. Our customers are small businesses, who often don't have the dedicated resources to implement every best practice in one go.

So, we have designed our layers to be adoptable in steps. If you follow at least 1 Instruction per month, we expect your business to achieve a Minimum Grade of standards in a year.

After that, you and your team will find it easier to maintain and upgrade gradually over time.
