The comprehensive program is meticulously crafted to propel careers in the cybersecurity domain, addressing the growing need for skilled professionals supporting India’s mission to make cybersecurity expertise a pressing priority.

    In a recent statement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasized the imperative for India to cultivate self-reliance in the realm of cybersecurity. This conversation gained momentum at the 2023  G20 summit, where he sought consensus on bolstering global cybersecurity regulations and policies. With the impending rollout of 5G technology and an ambitious target of achieving 80% population coverage, India finds itself at a critical juncture that necessitates robust cybersecurity practices. As the demand for cybersecurity professionals rises in tandem with the evolving technological landscape, the nation’s pursuit of self-reliance is intricately linked to the cultivation of skilled experts who can adeptly navigate and fortify the cybersecurity landscape.

    Talking about the new program, Mr Akshay Munjal, Founder & CEO, Hero Vired said, “As cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated and pervasive, the need for skilled cybersecurity professionals has never been more urgent. Earlier this year, the recommendations by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance highlighted the critical importance of securing India’s digital assets. Our program is a revolutionary step towards building a cadre of skilled professionals equipped to protect the nation’s digital future. In the present fast-paced digital landscape, the agility of edtech platforms will be key in responding speedily to the evolving skilling needs of industries. Through ed-tech, we have the power to transform individuals into cybersecurity experts, ensuring they are well-prepared to face the evolving threats in our interconnected world.”

    A workforce adept at managing cyber threats is paramount, given the higher risks pertaining to data breaches, monetary loss, and data asset theft, among other challenges.  Today, cybersecurity is not merely a concern for India but a global imperative, demanding round-the-clock vigilance to safeguard critical elements such as systems, applications, websites, networks, cloud, and mobile devices.

    The comprehensive 6-month program by Vired, takes a deep dive into the entire spectrum of IT infrastructure, exploring vulnerabilities in systems, applications, websites, networks and cloud environments. During the course, learners will gain proficiency in a diverse range of tools crucial for cybersecurity, including Python, Bash Programming, Assembly Language, Wireshark, Aircrack, Kali Linux (OS), and Burp Suite among others. This ensures a well-rounded skill set to tackle the evolving challenges in the cybersecurity landscape. This holistic approach ensures learners gain a nuanced understanding of potential cyber threats. Besides equipping learners with technical skills, the program provides a global outlook on cybersecurity policies and governance. Understanding the broader landscape permits learners to become hands-on cybersecurity experts capable of addressing challenges on an international scale. Additionally, the recent report by Primus Partners on Web3’s potential to create 2.2 Mn jobs in India by 2032, indicates the rising demand for diverse roles in tech.

    During the certification program, learners will engage in 10+ industry simulation projects and case studies, attend 5+ masterclasses with industry leaders, and participate in a 3-week capstone project – an industry-relevant project enabling participants to enter the world of cybersecurity with hands-on experience. This approach will allow learners to apply theoretical concepts in real-world scenarios, enhancing their problem-solving skills and helping them prepare for globally recognized certifications such as CompTIA Security+, CISM, and CEH, ensuring participants are well-equipped for the demands of the cybersecurity industry.
