About the Project

Cybersecurity Training for Educators & Students of Higher Education

The cybersecurity field presents diverse career opportunities. Potential jobs include information security analyst, chief information security officer, security architect, and security engineer. The most popular industries that employ cybersecurity professionals include computer systems design and related services; management of companies and enterprises; credit intermediation and related activities; and management, scientific, and technical consulting services. As companies continue to emphasize on cybersecurity and heightened employee awareness, the focus on cybersecurity has increased more than ever. However there seems to be a huge supply-demand gap, this has led to an increase in hiring for available positions on permanent or contractual basis. The demand for roles such as Security Engineers, Cybersecurity Analysts and Cybersecurity Engineers is on the rise. India is expected to have over 1.5 million unfulfilled job vacancies in cybersecurity by 2025. The second highest in the APAC Region after China. But finding skilled professionals in Cyber Security remains a formidable challenge.

As per the UNSDGs Goal No. 4 Quality Education, and Goal No. 8. Decent Work and Economic Growth, this problem needs intervention.

ICT Academy has partnered with Microsoft Philanthropies to conduct cybersecurity training programs for higher education students and faculty members. This program will help to create cybersecurity professionals. The program will be delivered in rural and sub-urban regions. Through this initiative, ICT Academy has been strengthening the India’s important visions on Skill India and Digital India.

100 Institutions will be identified (50 institutions from Tamil Nadu & Karnataka, remaining 50 from Telangana, Assam, Uttarakhand, Delhi NCR and Rajasthan.
