Question description

Project Deliverable 5: Network Infrastructure and Security


Due Week 8 and worth 120 points


This assignment consists of two (2) sections: an infrastructure document
and a revised project plan. You must submit both sections as separate files for
the completion of this assignment. Label each file name according to the section
of the assignment it is written for. Additionally, you may create and / or
assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this
assignment.


With the parameters set forth at the onset of the project, present the
infrastructure and security policy that will support the expected development
and growth of the organization. The network solution that is chosen should
support the conceived information system and allow for scalability. The network
infrastructure will support organizational operations; therefore, a pictorial
view of workstations, servers, routers, bridges, gateways, and access points
should be used. Since the company will be merging with a multinational company,
virtualization and cloud technology should be taken into consideration. In
addition, access paths for Internet access should be depicted. A narrative
should be included to explain all the nodes of the network and the rationale for
the design. Lastly, using the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA)
Triangle, define the organizational security policy.



Section 1: Infrastructure Document


Write a five to ten (5-10) page infrastructure document in which you:




  1. Identify possible network infrastructure vulnerabilities. Address network
    vulnerabilities with the appropriate security measures. Ensure that
    consideration is given to virtualization and cloud technology.

  2. Design a logical and physical topographical layout of the planned network
    through the use of graphical tools in Microsoft Word or Visio, or an open source
    alternative such as Dia. Explain the rationale for the logical and physical
    topographical layout of the planned network. Note: The graphically depicted
    solution is not included in the required page length.

  3. Illustrate the possible placement of servers, including access paths to the
    Internet and firewalls. Note: facility limitations, workstations, printers,
    routers, switches, bridges, and access points should be considered in the
    illustration.

  4. Create and describe a comprehensive security policy for the company that
    will:



  • Protect the company infrastructure and assets by applying the principals of
    CIA. Note: CIA is a widely used benchmark for evaluation of information systems
    security, focusing on the three (3) core goals of confidentiality, integrity,
    and availability of information. 

  • Address ethical aspects related to employee behavior, contractors, password
    usage, and access to networked resources and information.


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 MS Visio or Dia as an appendix of the
    infrastructure document. All references to these diagrams must be included in
    the body of the infrastructure document.


Section 2: Revised Project Plan


Use Microsoft Project to:




  1. Update the project plan (summary and detail) template, from Project
    Deliverable 4: Cloud Technology and Virtualization, with three to five (3-5) new
    project tasks each consisting of five to ten (5-10) subtasks.


The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment
are:




  • Describe the methods and best practices in implementing process change in IT
    organizations.

  • Describe the role and methods of technology-induced process improvement in
    organizations.

  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in information
    systems.

  • Write clearly and concisely about leadership issues and strategic insight of
    the Information systems domain using proper writing mechanics and technical
    style conventions.
