Today the world is facing many security challenges attacking almost all electronic devices such as laptops, desktops and mobile devices, etc. through malware, social engineering attacks, ransomware, targeted attacks, etc. The IT industry is in need of experts to tackle such challenges

As our daily lives become more and more dependent on Internet-based tools and services, and as those platforms accumulate more of our most sensitive data, the demand grows for experts in the field of Cybersecurity. Wherever usage of computers in a shared environment, there exist a need for Cybersecurity professional to protect/secure the data and infrastructure that are involved in shared computer devices. So cyber security has become the utmost priority for organizations. Cyber security Ventures predicts there will be 350% growth in open cyber security positions from 2015-2023. Cyber security professionals find a job market in - Protection and recovery technologies, processes, and procedures for individuals and businesses, and government organizations. The cyber security market is expected to grow to around $232 Billion by 2022 according to a report. Domestic IT giants like Infosys and even global players like CISCO have been betting big in the cyber security domain.

Out of the 3.5 million open cyber security positions are vacant as of 2021 and the demand for cyber security professionals is likely to grow in the years to come. Cyber security ventures estimate more than 2 million openings will be in the Asia-Pacific region. 62% say their organization’s cyber security team is understaffed; 57% say they currently have unfilled cyber security positions on their team.

This programme aims to cater to the growing demand for Cyber security experts. The job positions are i) Information Security Analyst ii) Lead Software Security Engineer iii) Chief Information Security Officer iv) Security Architect Penetration Tester v) Information Security Crime vi) Investigator/Forensics Expert Security Engineer vii) Cybersecurity Analyst viii) Security Consultant /Specialist ix) Security Architect x) Security Software Developer xi) Security Administrator.
