DESIGNING COMPLIANCE WITHIN THE LAN-TO-WAN DOMAIN
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.
