Question Description

Assignment 4: Designing Compliance within the LAN-to-WAN Domain

Note: Review the page requirements and formatting instructions for this assignment closely. Graphically depicted solutions, as well as the standardized formatting requirements, do NOT count toward the overall page length.

Imagine you are an Information Systems Security Officer for a medium-sized financial services firm that has operations in four (4) states (Virginia, Florida, Arizona, and California). Due to the highly sensitive data created, stored, and transported by your organization, the CIO is concerned with implementing proper security controls for the LAN-to-WAN domain. Specifically, the CIO is concerned with the following areas:

  • Protecting data privacy across the WAN
  • Filtering undesirable network traffic from the Internet
  • Filtering the traffic to the Internet that does not adhere to the organizational acceptable use policy (AUP) for the Web
  • Having a zone that allows access for anonymous users but aggressively controls information exchange with internal resources
  • Having an area designed to trap attackers in order to monitor attacker activities
  • Allowing a means to monitor network traffic in real time as a means to identify and block unusual activity
  • Hiding internal IP addresses
  • Allowing operating system and application patch management

The CIO has tasked you with proposing a series of hardware and software controls designed to provide security for the LAN-to-WAN domain. The CIO anticipates receiving both a written report and diagram(s) to support your recommendations.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Use MS Visio or an open source equivalent to graphically depict a solution for the provided scenario that will:
    1. filter undesirable network traffic from the Internet
    2. filter Web traffic to the Internet that does not adhere to the organizational AUP for the Web
    3. allow for a zone for anonymous users but aggressively controls information exchange with internal resources
    4. allow for an area designed to trap attackers in order to monitor attacker activities
    5. offer a means to monitor network traffic in real time as a means to identify and block unusual activity
    6. hide internal IP addresses 
  2. Identify the fundamentals of public key infrastructure (PKI).
  3. Describe the manner in which your solution will protect the privacy of data transmitted across the WAN.
  4. Analyze the requirements necessary to allow for proper operating system and application patch management and describe a solution that would be effective.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
  • Include charts or diagrams created in Visio or an equivalent such as Dia or OpenOffice. The completed diagrams / charts must be imported into the Word document before the paper is submitted.

DESIGNING COMPLIANCE WITHIN THE LAN-TO-WAN DOMAIN

Introduction
The LAN-to-WAN domain is used to provide internet access for an entire organization and
is actually the entry point of the Wide Area Network (WAN). This domain is the IT infrastructure
where all the data moves in and out of the organization (Mansfield, 2010). There are many risks
and threats that are associated with this domain since an attack can come from inside the network
or try entering the network from outside. As an Information Systems Security Officer for a medium
sized technology firm that has two sites, one in Virginia, and another in California, I am charged
with the task of implementing the proper security controls for the organization’s LAN-to-WAN
domain as well as propose a series of hardware and software controls which will provide security
for this domain.
The LAN-to-WAN domain is responsible for receiving a lot of traffic through it and it is
therefore vulnerable to numerous risks, threats and other vulnerabilities. The threats from people
can emerge from badly configured equipments or those that are not correctly configured. There is
also the risk of Trojan, viruses and network worms that can inflict the organizational network.
Some of the physical threats include hardware failures.
