Before looking at the technologies, you need to do some assessment of
the threats and risks, and develop a security policy. This is an
area where it may be very wise to involve your auditors and insurers.
A security policy should not be a technical document, but something
that your top management understands and visibly approved. Until you
have the requirements in terms of policy, there's no way to say what
design is adequate.
The CIA spy shop and the local branch library both have security
requirements, but they won't be the same.
