Internet access is an essential resource for many organizations and their employees. Your network design must include provisions to maintain network security when employees connect to the Internet. An important part of this design is your organization's Internet acceptable use policy, which defines how employees should and should not use the Internet. The policy serves as the blueprint for security mechanisms that will protect the private network as employees access the Internet.
Finally, the chapter examines strategies for auditing connections to the Internet. Auditing allows an organization to verify that its employees are following the Internet acceptable use policy.
To complete this chapter, you must read the chapter scenario. This scenario is used throughout the chapter to apply the design decisions discussed in each lesson.
