This assignment consists of two (2) sections: an infrastructure document and a revised Gantt chart or
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 for which it is written. Additionally, you may
create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.
The last section of the project plan will present the infrastructure in accordance with the parameters set
forth at the outset of the project. 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. 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. CIA is a
widely used benchmark for evaluation of information systems security.
Section 1: Infrastructure Document
1. Write a five to ten (5-10) page infrastructure document in which you:
a. 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. Note: The graphically depicted
solution is not included in the required page length.
b. 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.
c. Explain the rationale for the logical and physical topographical layout of the planned network.
d. Create 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 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.
