C4. Firewalls

All servers which store or process personal and confidential information should be protected behind a firewall that uses an intrusion detection and prevention system.

Additional Information

Protecting sensitive information, particularly personal and confidential information, requires multiple levels of security. Firewalls that use an intrusion detection and prevention system provide added protection to detect and prevent unauthorized access and other forms of attack. 

Prior to deploying a server which will store, process or provide access to personal and confidential information, system administrators should consult with ITServices about firewall and IDS/IPS protection alternatives.
