Mohammed Ibrahim M. Gali | Dr. Abdelrahman Elsharif Karrar 
Abstract: As networks grow and evolve, the risk of coming under attack increases. To help counter this threat, Cisco has developed the Cisco Self-Defending Network (SDN) strategy. To effectively implement this strategy an organization can leverage their comprehensive security policies. To implement an effective security policy, you must understand why a network security policy is required, common attack-mitigation techniques, the parameters of a secure network life cycle model, and in the end, how to develop a comprehensive security policy. Security Policy. In the past, most closed off from public access, todays networks are more often than not open, and they are now vulnerable to attacks from both the inside and the outside. In addition, as time has passed, hacker tools have become easily available, and the technical knowledge required to use such tools has decreased. This scenario creates quite a challenge for the e-business. A balance must be maintained between the need to open up a network to support the evolution of the business versus the need to protect business information. A network security policy is necessary for a number of reasons, including new laws that require certain levels of protection, an increase in terrorist activity, and the increased risk of being hacked.
