Network Security PlanIntroductionThe First National University(FNU) network security plan is to provide specific instructionsfor the practice of IT which is used on daily basis. Network security plan is going to help inproviding robust and secure environment for computing. These plans provide the protection ,reputation and operation facilities to FNU system and its network. At current , FNU havewide,differnt type of undergraduate and postgraduate programs as well as Vocational andEducational Training (VET) and short professional programs. Above 45,000 students arecurrently studying at different levels of programs at FNU as on-campus students.Additionally, there are 15,000 students are presently studying at FNU under the online anddistance education programs. At FNU to support the day-to-day learning , teaching activitiesand academics between student and administrative staff, they uses Network infrastructurewhich is nowadays relatively old and complex technologies. At FNU the current network hasconsistency, performance, and reliability problems which cause due to high growth inenrolments and due to expansion of operations process . Another major problem at FNU isthat there are no BYOD and Work-at-home (WAT) policies is available. Now it has become afocus of contention between the IT department, staff and students. This network security plangoing to provide the security, privacy and confidentiality of FNU data and information.Network security plan are mainly develop to protect data and information of FNU employees,students, sponsors, suppliers, and other different related entities. Due to absence of perfectnetwork security plan FNU faces so many problems like attacks of virus , security threats ofnetwork systems and its services, as well as legal problems. This NetworkSecurity Plan isgoing to support the culture and academic mission of First National University by providingthe availability, confidentiality, and integrity of the university's network in accordance withthe FNU network Security Plan and other different applicable procedures and standardsmethods.*Networks and Information Security Case study - Copyright © Edilson Arenas - CQUniversity
ScopeThese procedures and standards is applicable to every network systems and the resourceswhich comes under the control of FNU, including each computers which is connecting to thenetwork of FNU and each FNU employees of the System, faculty member, students, anddifferent other individuals who administer and uses those systems as well as computers,specially those which are involved with network system management.This network securityplan applicable to many uses of the computing process of the University's or networkresources as explain in the resources of Computing , FNU Network and E-mail Use Policy, aswell as the Confidentiality Policy of University. Additionally given procedures and standardsmay lead specific data or computer systems or networks provided or operated by the third-party service providers to FNU. Theseassets mainly include the FNU data in software andhardware as well as paper or other different media of storage.This network security planprovide the protection , reputation and operation facilities to FNU system and its network.Network security plan are mainly develop to protect data and information of FNU employees,students, sponsors, suppliers, and other different related entities.*Networks and Information Security Case study - Copyright © Edilson Arenas - CQUniversity
ObjectivesThe main objectives of this plan is to provide the security which have been established by theFNU to secure its administrative information systems, which mainly exchnage,store, transmit,retrieve, process and confidential, personally identifiable, trusted or otherwise protected dataand information, against the unauthorized access, virus attack or other different securitythreats. The main component of this network security plan are : Management of risk ;response on incident ; spreading awareness; strong policy; as well as advance tools.Thisnetwork security plan applicable to many uses of the computing process of the University'sor network resources as explain in the resources of Computing , FNU Network and E-mailUse Policy, as well as the Confidentiality Policy of University. As part of the BYOD policy,it is going to allow students, staff and visitors to the University to access the campus networkand the Internet wirelessly using their mobile devices including notebooks, smartphones, andtablets. It is also going to improve the student support efficiency and eliminate problemsrelated with assignment onlinesubmission. As part of the WAT, it also permit students andstaff to remotely access the campus network fromhome. It is also going to Provide a networkwhich offers a response time of less than a second for interactive applications. It is also goingto automate the majority of the network tasks and services including plug and play, networkconfiguration, network management, troubleshooting, network monitoring, resource sharing,load balancing, updates, and data backups.This network security plan provide the protection ,reputation and operation facilities to FNU system and its network.*Networks and Information Security Case study - Copyright © Edilson Arenas - CQUniversity
AssumptionsFor FNU the redesign process of network security should be justified in terms of scalability,availability, network performance, security, manageability, usability, adaptability, andaffordability. The network security plan going to Provide a network which is availableapproximately 99.9 percent of the time and offers an MTBF (mean-time-between-failure) of6000 hours and an MTTR (mean-time-to- repair) of less than 90 minutes. At present, FNUsupports its wide area network operations using a mesh topology of three (3) Layer2 VPLS(Virtual Private LAN Service) point-to-point circuits. This mesh guarantees redundancybetween the Headquarters, Operations (Data Centre), and Backup sites. To provide support ina day-to-day learning and teaching activities, academics and administrative staff at FNU alsodeals with a dozen (12) of external partners which mainly include hospitals, research centres,vendor support, and technology partners in many different ways, non-necessarily compatiblewith each other. FNUsecurity plan is going to manages threats by finding, evaluating,controlling, and reducing the vulnerabilities which are major security threat to the data andinformation systems under its authority.*Networks and Information Security Case study - Copyright © Edilson Arenas - CQUniversity
