Securing LAN
One way to secure your LAN connection is to use a separate network for your LAN. If you use a TCP/IP protocol for any of your network adapters you are connected to the internet and are open to unwanted visitors. It is simple to prevent this threat of becoming an easy attack point for hackers. Open the TCP/IP properties and uncheck the Client for Microsoft Networks and the File and Printer Sharing, also uncheck the Microsoft Family Logon.
Other way your LAN can be attacked is from the inside. It can be as simple as an attacker gaining access to the wiring closet. It is very important to make sure that your wiring closet is secure using some type of ID access, being ID card, Finger Print, or combination code. For the best method I would recommend using a at least two of these access methods.

Securing WAN
One threat to your VAN is eavesdropping; this is where a hacker uses software to intercept the data being via the WAN. To prevent this from being a problem for your company you want to use an encryption and VPN tunnels for end-to-end secure IP communications. The administrator should create a data classification standard and the policies, procedures, and guidelines should always be followed.
Another way to protect your WAN is to apply filters to your exterior IP stateful firewalls and IP router WAN interfaces to block TCP SYN and ICMP. The network administrator should contact the ISP to put the proper filters on its IP router WAN interfaces in accordance with CERT Advisory…...

7 Domains of a Typical It Infastructure

...security policy will touch 3 main domains: User, Workstation, and Lan Domains. The “Lan Domain”, this domain will be protected by limiting access to the companies infrastructure. This will include but will not be limited to: Background checks on any and all field support technicians, and limited access for all employees to data closets and server rooms (i.e. locked doors, fingerprint scanners, etc.). These precautions will help insure the integrity of the network at the lowest level. The “Workstation Domain”, this domain includes all company workstations. Only workstations approved by and set up by the company will be allowed on the network. Absolutely NO PERSONAL DEVICES will be allowed on the network without explicet permission from IT and these devices will be set up as to allow IT full access to all files and folders on the device at any given time should the need arise. All workstations will be updated, patched, and scanned regularly. All users using these workstations will be required to first be approved by management to have an account set up. Then the user will be given a username and passcode that must meet standard strong password parameters. Removable media will not be permitted unless provided by the company for official use only. Lastly AD groups will be used to control which users have access to what data on the network to ensure only users with proper authorization will have access to data in question. The “User Domain” will use an “Acceptable Use......

...Investments. This report will specifically address, the IT infrastructure domains and how they are affected by our standards, they are seven IT infrastructure domain and these are they names (1) users domain (2) workstation domain (3) Lan domain (4) lan to wan domain (5) wan domain (6) remote access domain (7) system application domain. My focus in this report is to clearly identify the security risk that goes along with these domains and to identify some solutions also even to open the door for grate discussion to develop a better strategy to protect our company. Sir, Each domain requires proper security controls and must meet the A-I-C (Accountability, Integrity and Confidentiality) triad requirements. But at tins time I will only focus on three domains that are mostly affected by the “Internal Use Only” standard. Listed below are these three it infrastructure and what are the direct dealings within our company and a glimpse of their treat. 1. User Domain • The User Domain defines what data a person can and cannot have access to within an organizations information system. This domain enforces the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) which defines what a user is allowed to do within an organization’s owned IT asset. It is the weakest link in an IT Infrastructure. Users must understand what motivates someone to compromise an organizations system. 2. Workstation domain • The Workstation Domain is where most users connect to the IT Infrastructure. Desktop......

...1. Describe five factors that may lead you to create multiple domains for this organization. a. Decentralized administration – If the company doesn’t plan to centralize domains into one model, this factor would be a good choice due to the fact that the company has multiple branches in multiple locations. Each domain acts as a kind of security boundary which will only allow administrators within that domain to work only in that domain; for example, an administrator in England would not have privileges to work within a domain that is located in California. b. Geographic limitations – Due to the fact that the company has multiple locations scattered globally, links or data transfer may be slow if the entire network is under one domain. This alone doesn’t give enough reason for multiple domains, the main reason is so that an administrator will have control over his/her region and not have to contact another administrator halfway across the world. c. Unique DNS namespace considerations – If multiple organizations want to use similar registered namespaces, multiple domains are needed because each registered namespace has to be on a separate domain. d. Special password policies – password policies are setup on the domain lever so to separate the different policies multiple domains have to be setup. e. Enhanced security concerns – separating the schema master role into a different domain than what your users on can increase the security by nit having everything......

...to be found on Discretionary Access Control Lists. The group can have a control that encompasses everything, can be limited to a certain extent or can be further narrowed down as well. It has a universal level of control that share data with every domain on the network. The Active Directory administrator can manage the groups as well as single user accounts by the Group Policy that is a tool of Active Directory. The group policy determines whom and how much permission of resources access is given to a group or individual user. These policies are used to administer terminals and servers on a certain network. The user and computer preferences are determined by the Windows group policy. The Group Policy Object can also manage the directory options, file deployment and security related issues as well and it can also manage the sites, domains and OUs (Organizational Units). Group Policy objects are carried out in following steps: Local: Any specifications in machine’s domestic policy and version of operation system make it possible to make the policies for specific single users. Site: It includes such policies that associate with the active directory site to which a specific machine belongs. Domain: This refers to a specific domain of windows on which a computer is located. If there is more than one policy associated then the priority is determined by the maintenance personnel. Organizational Units: It includes such Group Policies that as are associated with the OU of......

The Four Domains

...The Four Domains Michelle Williams ELL240: Linguistically & Culturally Diverse Learners Instructor: Amy Breitenbucher July 1, 2014 When working with student’s within the four domains of English Language Development (ELD) it is vital to begin by creating a safe learning environment where students can make mistakes without ridicule, embarrassment, or backlash. This will make students comfortable and at ease with a clear mind ready and engaged to learn. There are many strategies to teaching ELD, with each strategy belonging to one of the four domains; reading, writing, listening, and speaking. I will discuss several strategies, assign each to a domain, justify the effectiveness in its domain, and when each strategy should be used. Effective instructional strategies utilized to facilitate ELD. * Using visual and graphic organizers This strategy, I believe, is best used in the domain of writing, because of the ability it has to aid students in logically organizing their material resulting in effectively communicating their thoughts. This strategy can be used anytime during the learning process. This is a great strategy for early ELL’s as well as long-term English learner. Graphic and visual organizers can assist with the progress of student’s by aiding them in identifying focus areas in a topic that is extensive, such as books or published documents. Graphic and visual organizers aid each student to arrange thinking and find relations between topics. They work......

Eminent Domain

...Eminent Domain Under the Fifth Amendment of United States Constitution, the government is provided the power to enforce eminent domain and take private property for public use. This provision allows this provision as long as adequate compensation is being made for the property. Article 1, Section Seventeen under the Texas Constitution prohibits the taking, damaging or destruction of property for public use without adequate compensation. Generally, there are four elements of eminent domain but ultimately the actor must be the state or a private party authorized by the state to condemn the property. The power to condemn must be conferred by the legislature and only upon a two-thirds vote of both houses will it be granted. The primary private parties that are empowered to perform eminent domain are gas or electric corporations, groundwater conservation districts and common carrier pipelines. Once the property has been identified, the Condemner must provide plans for the public project and indicate the exact location of the private land needed for the project. Once this information is acquired, a declaration must be made that certain property rights must be obtained to complete the project and that all property owners involved must be notified. Element one consists of the property taken must be for public use and in 2009, voters approved a constitutional amendment further clarifying public use. To understand the purpose of public use, it is necessary to note it is......

The Seven Domains

...1. User Domain defines the people who access an organization’s information system. 2. WORKSTATION DOMAIN is where most users connect to the IT infrastructure. It can be a desktop computer, or any device that connects to your network. 3. Local Area Network (LAN) DOMAIN is a collection of computers connected to one another or to a common connection medium. Network connection mediums can include wires, fiber optic cables, or radio waves. 4. LAN-TO-WAN DOMAIN is where the IT infrastructure links to a wide area network and the Internet. • Basically, a firewall controls, prevents, and monitors incoming and outgoing network access. It is the job of the firewall to prevent unauthorized network access, both from outside and inside network users. Depending on the type of firewall, data packets sent to and from the network pass through the firewall, and all this data can be checked for whether it is allowed for transfer. • Two main types of firewalls: network firewalls and host-based firewalls. Network firewalls, such as the software-based Microsoft’s Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server or the hardware-based Nortel Networks Alteon Switched Firewall System, protect the perimeter of a network by watching traffic that enters and leaves. Host-based firewalls, such as Internet Connection Firewall (ICF—included with Windows XP and Windows Server 2003), protect an individual computer regardless of the network it’s connected to. 5. Wide Area Network (WAN) DOMAIN connects......

Domain Tasting

...“Domain Tasting” The practice of “Domain Tasting” began in 2003 when the ICANN implemented a policy giving a five day grace period also known as add grace period (AGP) for new domain registrations. The five day grace period was meant to allow registrants to correct any issues that may have had with their domain names and then cancel and re-reregister with corrections. Domain tasting is when a company registers a domain name and loads the page with advertisements; these advertisements would generate money for clicks. They do this to test the “Marketability” of the domain name. If the web page was unpopular or did not produce as expected then the registration is cancelled within the five day grace period. If the registration was cancelled then the company did not have to pay for the domain name. This allowed companies to submit as many domain names as they wanted until they found one that was marketable. The use of “domain tasting” had a few negative effects on web users. One of the effects is that it weakened confidence of consumers in the domain marketing system. Domain tasting also populated the internet with many useless web sites that were full of useless information and advertisements. Another problem that arose from domain tasting was that the domain names that were found to be popular or marketable were sold back to consumers at inflated prices. In 2009, the ICANN implemented a policy that significantly decreased “domain tasting”...
