The exciting world of Cyber Security

Cybersecurity refers to the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect network, devices, programs and/or data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. According to PWC reports, the cybersecurity market in India is expected to grow from USD 1.97 billion in 2019 to USD 3.05 billion by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate of 15.6%, 1.5 times the global rate. However, there is a huge dearth of trained professionals to cater to this market. As per reports of IBM, India needs a pool of 30 lacs cyber security professionals right now and according to Cyber-Security Ventures there will be 35 lacs unfilled cyber security jobs in India by 2021. The major industry drivers in cybersecurity job market are BFSI, IT-ITES and Government. Big Audit and consulting firms in India have also been driving the demand as they have doubled the size of their cyber security teams in recent years.
