You work for JKS Accountants, which is a growing accounting firm in Sydney. The Managing Partner, Cindy, is looking to evolve the corporate network to allow staff to work remotely from home, client sites and other locations as required. Due to the confidential nature of the client information held by the firm, she is trying to minimise the risks associated with remotely accessing JKS Accountants corporate network. Cindy has heard of the term VPN but is unsure what exactly it is and how it could help with staff working remotely and accessing the corporate network.

1.What is a Virtual Private Network (VPN)? (1 mark)
2.What are the general risks faced by JKS Accounting associated with staff remotely accessing client data whilst not using a VPN? (2 marks)
3.What are benefits of JKS Accounting implementing a VPN. This should include the benefits of staff working remotely and how it can mitigate the risks you have identified above? (4 marks)
4.What other components of a corporate network would you also implement, in conjunction with a VPN, to help secure the network (1.5 marks)?
