d7800, need to isolate one ethernet port so it has access to internet but not the rest of my network

Hi,

I now work from home and have been given a cisco meraki so that I can connect securely to the office network. However, I don't want the office IT security team to be able to look onto my network. Is there a way to isolate the ethernet port that the meraki is plugged into so that it has internet acces but no access to my network ?

   So far as I can tell, "cisco meraki" is a company/division/service,
not a gizmo.  What, exactly, were you given, and what, exactly, are you
supposed to do with it?

   I know of no way to do anything special with one of the LAN Ethernet
ports on a router like this.

 

   If your mystery gizmo does something like establish a VPN/tunnel
between itself and your "the office network", then it's not immediately
obvious that any remote user would be able to interact directly with
other devices on your LAN.  However, I know nothing about your mystery
gizmo and its actual capabilities, or what you're doing with it.
