Network Security

Overview
Network security ensures that the network and connections between systems and network devices are used to support business purposes.  Network security consists of network access control, monitoring, segregation, vulnerability management and secure device configuration and connectivity, to name a few.

Guidelines
Network Security should consist of, but not limited to, the following components:
  • Network Segregation: Critical networks should be segregated and controlled based on data classification or critical business services.  Segregation can be achieved by separating systems, applications, and networks into groups of services or "domains" (e.g. Development, Internal/Production, Customer/Internet-facing, Perimeter/DMZ or User zones)
  • Network Access Control: NAC consists of a network and host-based agent solution used to allow authorized devices onto the network based on a predefined set of rules that each device or endpoint must have (e.g. machine certificate, NAC agent, Anti-virus, current patches). Unauthorized devices would be denied access to the network.
  • Network Device (and System) Secure Configurations: Configuration Management standards for platforms (e.g. UNIX/Windows systems, network devices) should be documented and maintained to ensure systems are configured securely and consistently to protect sensitive information.  Monitoring can be used to detect instances of insecure configurations (e.g. running Telnet).
  • Network and Security Monitoring: The process of continuously assessing and maintaining the effectiveness of security controls and the security posture of the organization. Monitoring includes automated real-time monitoring or audit logging of technical controls as well as manual reviews of management or operational controls.
  • Malicious Software Controls: Malicious software controls are critical to protect malicious software (or malware) from being installed on systems and to protect sensitive data. For example, host-based anti-virus agents as well as network proxy or gateway (anti-malware) devices used to scan incoming e-mail for malware or internet traffic.
  • Vulnerability Management: Vulnerability Management is the process to detect, analyze and remediate vulnerabilities on systems, devices, networks and applications in an ongoing manner. Vulnerability Management also includes the process to assess the risk of vulnerabilities and prioritize mitigation to reduce the likelihood of potential threats.
  • Remote Access: Requirements to ensure that teleworking devices on wired or wireless networks, as well as the home office, are properly secured. Examples of controls recommended for teleworking devices include: updated anti-virus software, updated software security patches, login password protection, two-factor authentication, paper shredders and secure wireless networking.
