Career Opportunities In Cyber Security
Corporate Resource Centre organised session on “Career Opportunities in Cyber Security” emphasized the importance of cyber security for all sectors on 29th October 2020 by Col Inderjit Singh, Chief Security officer, Vara Technologies.
Col Singh brought to life the session with his informative Power point presentation wherein he shared details about Cyber Security and the related Career opportunities and skill sets to be honed for a good career start.
Today the Cyber threat remains as potent as ever and so is the persistent cyber security talent shortage. There have been major efforts to increase the supply of cyber security workers but demand has increased as well, which means cyber security talent is still expensive and hard to find. Cyber security job market is shaped by certifications, and job seekers of all experience levels can improve their employment opportunities by obtaining the relevant credentials. Training new workers is important, but the vast majority of jobs are filled by people already in the workforce. This is true both in and out of cyber security. Entry-level workers, for example, can obtain foundational certifications such as Security+, which represents an entry point into the field and is by far the largest cyber security certification in terms of total holders said Col Singh. Experienced workers can target more advanced certifications such as CISSP, which requires holders to pass a rigorous exam and possess at least five years of information security experience – common requirements among advanced certifications, He emphasized.
The students asked many questions relating to the different aspects of cyber security and job scenario. Towards the end Mr Manoj Sahani Director CRC and Dr Shalini Bhaskar Bajaj HOD ASET AUH extended gratitude and thanked the guest for the informative session.
Total 200 students from engineering department participated in the session.
