Setting up a network

I'm a student and I have been assigned a project whereas I have to setup a network in a foreign country from scratch. The only resource I have is a building protect by embassy rules. I'm in desperate need of a template for how to perform this function.

Answer: ISO 27001, and more specifically ISO 27002, can provide you requirements regarding what you must consider when setting up a network, but they do not provide guidance on how to perform such task.

These articles will provide you further explanation about ISO 27001 and ISO 27002:
- What is IS 27001 https://advisera.com/27001academy/what-is-iso-27001/

- ISO 27001 vs. ISO 27002 https://advisera.com/27001academy/knowledgebase/iso-27001-vs-iso-27002/

Technically speaking, you should consider:
- Identification of which traffic must come in and out of this network, so you can configure the rules for the security pe rimeter (e.g., through an outbound firewall)
- Identification of which traffic should flow inside the network, so you can configure how the elements should be segregated (e.g., to segregate networks accessed by visitors, by embassy's employees in general, and by embassy's high staff).
- In case of use of wireless networks, what would be the rules for use and access.
