Cyber Security is a serious system engineering problem and it needs engineered solutions. This is a crisis situation and world needs a serious intervention to create millions of cyber defenders with deep system engineering skills. Shortages in the Cyber Défense Engineering Talent pool are causing an uncontrollable torrent of cyber- attacks the world over with no respite.
Lt. Gen (Dr.) Rajesh Pañt, National Cyber Security Co-Ordinator and Special Secretary to Govt of India recently opined that India needs over 1 million trained Cyber Rakshak right away and over 2.5 million Cyber Rakshak by 2025 to get the major share of USD 100 Billion global market opportunity in the next 10 years.
As per Michael Page, the world’s largest human resource consulting firm, there are around 3.1 million unfilled cyber security jobs worldwide today. If India/Bharat wants to bring true Cyber Resilience, we need to steer through a journey of talent creation in Cyber Engineering. A good surplus of Cyber Rakshak talent pool can bridge the talent gap and support the world economy.
Looking to the "Spate of cyber-attack and opportunity unlimited in Cyber Defence for Job", the time is opportune to Mentor 500000+ budding talents in the Next-generation Cyber Defence syllabus and ignite their minds for the Cyber Défense Engineering journey.
Considering the gravity of skill shortages, AICTE has partnered with Cybervidyapeeth Foundation, an educational entity dedicated to Cyber Defense, to provide Free 200 hours of intensive free cyber–Engineering Skill Building on the "Cyber Offensive - Defence Engineering using the “Virulent Python" program from 1st September’2022.
Accordingly, we request you to exhort 3rd/4th-year Students & Just passed out students who are yet to get a job for registering for this unique program. We are targeting around 10000 students for the first batch from any engineering streams who are passionate about real-world Cyber battles. Admission is based on a first come first serve basis.
