The COVID-19 outbreak has changed the cyber security threat landscape. There has been a surge in Work from Home, triggered by this pandemic. Our home networks are far more vulnerable than enterprise networks. As usual, cybercriminals are bound to exploit it. Since the beginning of the crisis, nearly 2000 malicious coronavirus-themed websites have been set up every day.

The writing on the wall is clear. Even after the crisis, companies who have discovered value in the gig economy will continue to operate a significant part of their workforce from home. Hence the need for cyber security expertise becomes apparent.

Amid COVID-19 crisis, new high-profile cyber attacks seem to constantly flood news headlines. No wonder the need for cyber security professionals is urgent and daunting. Besides, the world’s transition towards aggressive digitization has also marked cyber security as one of the biggest threats to the economy over the next decade. India has reported a hike in attacks (on IoT deployments) by 22% in the country.

Cyber security is one of the most in-demand skills, trending in the job market today. And studies point out that there will be nearly 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally by 2021. India alone has reported over 67,000 job openings. Companies are looking forward to professionals with an ability to build a viable cyber-resilient organization.

The Advanced Certification Program in Cyber Security and Cyber Defense is designed to provide an opportunity for aspiring and working professionals to exploit the latest trends in Cyber Security Technologies. Going by the new reality of continued WFH pattern for professionals, the time is right to get armed with cyber security knowledge for today and hereafter.
