Post Graduate Program in
Cyber Security



Launching Soon

Introduction

With the move towards a digital economy, increasing amount of consumer data will be stored digitally and a large number of transactions will be carried out online, by companies, individuals as well as government departments. That makes India a bigger target for cyber-criminals and hackers. Various stakeholders, especially Indian companies, need to be better prepared to handle this threat.

Cyber Security is a field which is constantly evolving; in which updated and specialized knowledge is essential. One of the biggest misconceptions about cybersecurity is that cyberattacks are restricted to the financial services and banking sector. It is important to note that industrial companies are equally vulnerable.

According to the McAfee report, new malware samples leaped 67% to 52 million, new ransomware samples increased 54% to 10.7 million samples and total mobile malware grew 61% in the past four quarters to 18.4 million samples. Given the nature and scale of threat, Indian companies are not investing enough in security. For example, global banks spend up to 15% of their IT budget, but in India it’s hardly 2-3% of the IT security budget.

As our lives increasingly depend on digital services, the need to protect our information from being maliciously disrupted or misused is really important. Thus the move towards a digital economy is likely to trigger a fresh wave of economic growth, attract more investment and create exciting jobs across multiple sectors.

Companies today seek candidates who not only have excellent knowledge of their field and specialist skills, but who can cope with dynamism and lead the company successfully through changes. It is now up to companies to ensure they are ready and prepared to harness and exploit the opportunities this evolution will bring. The only way to do that is to ensure that cybersecurity finds its way into the boardroom agenda.
