This assignment consists of two (2) sections: an infrastructure document and a revised 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 it is written for. Additionally, you may create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.
With the parameters set forth at the onset of the project, present the infrastructure and security policy that will support the expected development and growth of the organization. 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. Since the company will be merging with a multinational company, virtualization and cloud technology should be taken into consideration.
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.
Section 1: Infrastructure Document
Write a five to ten (5-10) page infrastructure document in which you:
Identify possible network infrastructure vulnerabilities.
Address network vulnerabilities with the appropriate security measures.
Ensure that consideration is given to virtualization and cloud technology.
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.
Explain the rationale for the logical and physical topographical layout of the planned network.
Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
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.
Create and describe a comprehensive security policy for the company that will:
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 (3) core goals of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.
Address ethical aspects related to employee behavior, contractors, password usage, and access to networked resources and information.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
using Times New Roman font (size 12),

The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length. Include charts or diagrams created in MS Visio or Dia as an appendix of the infrastructure document. All references to these diagrams must be included in the body of the infrastructure document.
Section 2: Revised Project Plan
Use Microsoft Project to:
Update the project plan (summary and detail) template, from Project Deliverable 4: Cloud Technology and Virtualization, with three to five (3-5) new project tasks each consisting of five to ten (5-10) sub tasks.
The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
Describe the methods and best practices in implementing process change in IT organizations.
Describe the role and methods of technology-induced process improvement in organizations.
Use technology and information resources to research issues in information systems.
Write clearly and concisely about leadership issues and strategic insight of the Information systems domain using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions
In March of 2013 three market owners who live in Dearborn, MI were arrested in a federal food stamp fraud investigation.
The owners allegedly redeemed U.S. Department of Agriculture Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program, or Michigan’s “Bridge Card” program, benefits for cash and allowed food stamps to be exchanged for items like tobacco, liquor, clothing, household appliances and furnishings, which are against federal rules.
Read this news coverage regarding the abuse of the Michigan welfare Bridge Card” program.”
Please look at the image and code below. You can see it more clearly on this page (Links to an external site.)FaceRecognitionCode.JPG
You need no technical experience whatsoever to analyze the scores in the code to the right of the image. The system is identifying the emotion on the faces of the individuals in the photo.
Answer the following question on the first page of your submission:
What is your theory regarding the code and the score that is applied to happy faces? You can answer in 1 sentence. There is a correct answer, and it will involve a numeral.
Take 3 selfies, each showing your face expressing 3 different emotions. On the Microsoft Cognitive Services page external. Links to an external site., right below the image of the five happy people, upload 1 photo at a time.
Take a screen shot that includes the selfie and the code, like the example of my selfie and code (below). Insert the screen shot of your 1st selfie on the 2nd page of your assignment. Continue with the next 2 photos on the next two pages.
On the last page of your file, evaluate the accuracy of the technology in terms of identifying your emotions in photos. This is page 5 of your submission, and you can write a couple sentences.
Also on page 5, in at least one paragraph, describe how this technology might support business.
Be very specific. Use examples.
