Hi EE,

One of the important things often overlooked in a business network is to have a network security policy.

Policy that safe guards a network from miss use. Not too restrictive such that work cannot be done but also be able to prevent intentional as well as unintentional miss use.

Obviously this is a big topic so I would like to focus more on network devices such as switches, routers, firewall etc.

Any leads, advice, directions on how to create a network policy, from conceving it to implementation, testing and applying it in prod would be most appreciated.

Thanks

SANS are big advocates of their own Critical Security Controls.
They're popular because you can implement them in layers, starting at Control 1 and working your way up.
