“The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable.”

The Art of War - General Sun Tzu

If you lived in a house that was located in a neighborhood that had a high level of crime, you would take steps to secure your home in a manner that would deter a break in, prevent future attempts and track those who have trespassed to collect evidence for prosecution. This would require multiple layers of security as only one system would not be effective in thwarting additional break ins and identifying criminals. The first level of added security might be signs or decals on the windows that communicate that the house has a security system. Additional layers might include glass-break sensors, motion and heat detectors and cameras. Lastly sirens and flashing lights would be set off if certain events transpired. This would all be tied into a central system that would collect, analyze and send data to specified authorities. In a similar manner, defense in depth is a strategy that involves implementing multiple layers of security defense mechanisms to protect critical business data.  The idea is that if a single layer or mechanism fails or is compromised,  there will be other layers and mechanisms in place to ensure the security of the data.
