Proper network design provides for compliant security, not only isolating users and their traffic, but also preventing attackers from easily traversing a network.
Using Microsoft Visio or another online network diagramming tool, diagram the network that was analyzed in the Topic 1 “Quantify the System” assignment.
Then, create a diagram for a better approach for compliance, based on one of the following frameworks: PCI, HIPAA, NIST, or any other accepted framework.
Ideally, the network will be an Enterprise class consisting of 1000+ clients for various corporate departments, with 50-100 servers providing typical network services. The network infrastructure will be using Layer 3 switches and layered routing to provide separation of subnets.
Your diagram, at a minimum, should include the following secure network design elements: Firewalls, IDS/IPS, DMZ, Vlans, Border and Gateway routers, private IP addressing, Isolated Server Subnets, Network Access Control, and VPN concentrator.
APA style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
Refer to “Demonstrating the Gap Scoring Guide,” prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Also, I don’t except to see 50-100 servers on your diagram. However, your diagram, at a minimum, should include the following secure network design elements: Firewalls, IDS/IPS, DMZ, Vlans, Border and Gateway routers, private IP addressing, Isolated Server Subnets, Network Access Control, and VPN concentrator.
This is an assignment that many students forget to label or include what is required. That said, I want everyone to do their best and get the best possible grade.
