Hello, Art. I also am a UAT Student in the same class, but I do have some experence in Network Security. I worked with something Similar to SKip framework at my last job. That is why I picked it for my topic as well. We used different vendors for different parts of the network. The outer network was cisco, the inner network was a mix of linux based systems, and enterasys. We used enterasys for is robust ability to look for anamolies in the network. We had a symantec software to store all our e-mails for later analasys. We did all this with a layered approach. This really helped harden our network to the point it was an over kill. Every year we would go the audit process to prepare, detect, respond, and improve. I think we used the IAM approach. We would prepare for a penetration company to come in and detect vulnerabilities. They found that our Mulit-function printers were the most vulnerable. We would respond to the findings to figure out what we could do to improve from the discovered vulnerabilities. Then at the end of the year we would try to use the let over money to try and improve one of these areas. The one I was part of was an ID scanner for the front desks of every building. This system could be used to scan a person’s drive license for warrants or any flags put on them by the government. It printed a badge with their piture on it so they could were it through the building. This helped everybody know that they were a visitor. I hope this helps.
