COIT20265 Networks and Information Security Project

Assessment Tasks
1 Project Report and Technical Implementation
Assessment Type
Report
Task Description
This is a practical activity that requires demonstration of the implementation of your group’s network
security plan. You must identify key threats and challenges, and implement technology to address
them. The technology has to address key challenges to the organisation’s network environment. You
should pick an area of network, infrastructure or security that you have already applied in your studies
and that you would like to explore in-depth and implement. You need to show how that was
implemented and how the tests were carried. You are also required to submit the technical
documentation including a test plan, test results and any network security policies and/or procedures
that result from your implementation test.

Assessment Criteria
You are required to submit your portfolio in week 12 for assessment; however, it is essential to
maintain this document throughout the term as it is the only component of the unit assessed
individually. Failure to submit a portfolio will disadvantage your overall marks. We recommend to make
entries in the portfolio on each occasion you undertake work on the project for personal reflections and
lessons learned. You are expected to make a portfolio entry at least once a week.
Periodically, show your portfolio to your mentor to receive feedback on the quality of the
content and the overall look and feel of the portfolio.
The Moodle site provides further information and specific marking criteria.
