  • Does not require knowledge of the field. No coding or linux knowledge required. Necessary basic technical knowledge will be given in LAB and courses.


Network security consists of the policies, processes, and practices adopted to prevent, detect and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network and network-accessible resources.

Network Security protects your network and data from breaches, intrusions and other threats. This is a vast and overarching term that describes hardware and software solutions as well as processes or rules and configurations relating to network use, accessibility, and overall threat protection.

Network Security involves access control, virus and antivirus software, application security, network analytics, types of network-related security (endpoint, web, wireless), firewalls, VPN encryption and more.

If the topic is cybersecurity, it is hard to start where. This is because of its multi-discipline structure. With this course, you can have a fresh start in network security with hands-on labs. This gives you the advantage of learning both technical and theoretical aspects of the field. You will have a chance to implement your knowledge about these topics during hand LABs. Our LABs are designed to learn the basics of technologies and processes. Thus, at the end of the course, you will have learned how to use or implement fundamental network-security technologies and processes. The theoretical topics include modern approaches.

Do not worry about technical LABs like IDS technologies, Honeypods, and VPNs. They are designed simply. Before starting the LAB needed theoretical information is given in previous lessons. After finishing the LABs you will have gained needed hands-on practices for Blue Teams.

Our course's motto was chosen from the enlightenment era.

"Sapere Aude"  (is the Latin phrase meaning "Dare to know")

Hi, I am Dr. Ibrahim,

As a cybersecurity architect and information security compliance expert, my primary focus is safeguarding sensitive data and ensuring the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of critical information systems. I have extensive experience in designing and implementing robust security solutions that protect against cyber threats and comply with industry regulations.

I thrive in dynamic and challenging environments, constantly adapting to emerging technologies and staying ahead of the evolving threat landscape. My expertise includes conducting risk assessments, developing security policies and procedures, and leading incident response teams.

As a cybersecurity expert, I have a proven track record of implementing and maturing industry-leading standards such as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, NIST 800-53, and NIST 800-37, FedRAMP, ISO 27001 ISMS, CMMC v.2. I take pride in designing and developing state-of-the-art cybersecurity operation centers (SOC) from scratch, integrating them seamlessly with network operation centers (NOC).

Additionally, I have designed and developed a state-of-the-art Cyber Security Operations Center (SOC) from scratch. By integrating it with the Network Operations Center (NOC), I have created a seamless environment for monitoring and responding to security incidents promptly.

To enhance operational efficiency, I have established playbooks, monitoring processes, and incident response procedures that align with industry best practices. This ensures a proactive approach to identifying and mitigating security risks.

I hold a Ph.D. degree in cyberpolitics, specializing in the study of the intersection between politics and cyberspace. My research focuses on cyber security threats, online activism, and the impact of digital technologies on political processes.

I have extensive experience working with government agencies, private organizations, and non-profit institutions to develop strategies for addressing cyber threats and ensuring a safe and secure digital environment.

Additionally, I am an avid writer and have published various articles and research papers on cyberpolitics.

When I'm not busy securing networks and systems, you can find me exploring the latest trends in cybersecurity, attending industry conferences, and expanding my knowledge through continuous learning. If you have any questions or need assistance with cybersecurity, feel free to reach out. Let's create a secure digital world together.
