Network Firewall Standard
Appendix to Policy
To ensure authorized access and to prevent unauthorized access to University information and IT resources, select networked systems must be protected through the use of network firewalls. Network firewalls reduce risk by restricting access to those who require access to the applications or data.
The following table defines the baseline security controls for network-based firewalls.
|NF.A.01||Segmentation of traffic with network firewall||Required||Recommended||Optional|
|NF.A.02||Documentation of firewall rules||Required||Recommended||Optional|
|NF.A.03||Periodic review of rulesets (suggested: semi-annual or annual)||Required||Recommended||Optional|
