Assignment 2: Implementing Network and Personnel Security Measures

Category: Computer Science
The      security consulting firm that you work for has been awarded a contract to      implement a new IT Security Infrastructure to secure the Information      Technology data assets of a local government agency.  This agency has      many remote workers that are in the field and need to connect back to the      agency’s system servers. The remote workers use a wireless network      infrastructure to connect their electronic pads to servers located within      the local government’s facility. The remote workers have needs to access      property records, cite zoning violations electronically, and validate      building permits. The public demand to expand IT services has grown faster      than its ability to provide an adequately secured infrastructure. In fact,      this government entity was previously featured on the news for having      minimal security controls and methods for accessing property tax      information of citizens. The inadequate security allowed many construction      trade businesses to illegally access property records and zoning      violations. Your role in this project is to enhance and optimize the      security mechanisms for accessing these systems.

     Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

     1. Create an information flow diagram, using Visio or Dia, which:
          a. Illustrates how remote users will securely connect      to the government agency’s network.  
          b. Illustrates the patch of network devices that data      packets must travel to get from server to remote user’s device and back      to
              Note: The graphically depicted solution      is not included in the required page length.

     2. Provide an equipment list of network security devices that would be      needed to ensure the integrity and sensitivity of private          information. In this list:
         a. Propose at least two (2) vendor brands per each device      and the associate costs required to procure these items.
         b. Identify the functionality each device serves and the      expected benefits the government agency should experience upon      the         successful installation of this      equipment.

     3. Develop a maintenance plan that should be recommended to the government      agency to ensure having the latest security measures         available within the network in which you:
         a. Describe the risks associated with not fulfilling the      activities outlined within your maintenance plan.
         b. Indicate specific activities, personnel / resources      required, and frequency of execution.

     4. Recommend at least four (4) physical security measures that could be      developed to ensure the electronic perimeter of electronic          assets.

     5. Recommend at least two (2) physical security vendors that could achieve      the four (4) security measures you identified. Justify your
         recommendations with your response.

     6. Evaluate and consider activities that the Human Resources Department      could perform in order to complement and instill security          from within the organization. Provide a rationale with your      response.

     7. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note:      Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality          resources.

     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 one of its equivalents such as       Dia. The completed diagrams / charts must be imported into the Word       document before the paper is submitted.
  • The       specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
  • Describe       and apply the 14 areas of common practice in the Department of Homeland       Security (DHS) Essential Body of Knowledge.
  • Describe       best practices in cybersecurity.
  • Describe       system, application, network, and telecommunications security policies       and response.
  • Evaluate       the ethical concerns inherent in cybersecurity and how these concerns       affect organizational policies.
  • Use       technology and information resources to research issues in cybersecurity.
  • Write       clearly and concisely about topics associated with cybersecurity using       proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions.
  • Grading       for this assignment will be based on answer quality, logic / organization       of the paper, and language and writing skills. Click here to access the rubric for this       assignment.
