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.

IT engineers and architects    


Dr. David Movshovitz is a senior lecturer at LOGTEL. David brings with him 30 years of experience in information security with a broad view of the range of topics necessary to build a comprehensive and efficient data protection system for product / system it must protect. He is software engineering and information security expert, and is teaching academic courses on Web-Application-Security and on Developing Secure Applications in Inter Disciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzalia and in Michlelet Tel-Aviv. Dr. Movshovitz headed a R&D team in the IDF that has earned the Israeli Defense Award for professional excellence. After his departure from the military, Dr. Movshovitz has served in senior R&D positions in the Hi-Tech industry (e.g. Elscint, Taldor Group, F5 Networks). Dr. Movshovitz was a co-founder and VP R&D at Algotec Systems Ltd. that was acquired by Kodak, a CTO and VP R&D of Magnifire Ltd. that was acquired by F5 Networks, and a CTO of Navajo Systems Ltd. that has been acquired by Dr. Movshovitz earned his doctorate in Physics from Bar-Ilan University.
