Course Overview

Modern network based system are composed from several elements and layers. Thus, to secure these systems we need to secure all the elements the system is composed from and every layer. The two basic layers of every network based system are the network layer and the OS layer.

In this course we will discuss how to secure these two layers, i.e. how we secure the access to the network using firewalls and VPNS, and how we secure/harden the OS. In addition, we will discuss how to detect and prevent malware using IDS/IPS solutions.

In the course, we will discuss how the security solutions (e.g. firewalls, VPNs, IDS/IPS) work, and the best practices for implementing these security mechanisms/products.

Who should attend?
IT engineers and architects
