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.
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:
possible network infrastructure vulnerabilities. Address network
vulnerabilities with the appropriate security measures. Ensure that
consideration is given to virtualization and cloud technology.
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.
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.
and describe a comprehensive security policy for the company that will:
i. 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.
ii. Address ethical
aspects related to employee behavior, contractors, password usage, and access
to networked resources and information.
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
Microsoft Project to:
- 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.
specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
the methods and best practices in implementing process change in IT
the role and methods of technology-induced process improvement in organizations.
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.
