India needs an army of Cyber Security Warriors Careers in Cyber Security

The necessity to secure and safeguard valuable information poses a prime challenge across organizations as threats to information and data security are ever-persistent, increasingly sophisticated and continuously evolving. This rapidly increasing vulnerability of the digital world to various cyber-attacks has called for the need for a well-trained army of cyber warriors who can predict, detect and mitigate the threats and comply with the regulations to ensure a cyber safe organizational environment.

Cyber security refers to the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect network devices, programs and/or data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.

Why should you aspire for a career in Cyber Security

As per PWC report, the Cyber Security market in India is expected to grow from USD 1.97 billion in 2019 to USD 3.05 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 15.6%, 1.5times the global rate

According to IBM, India needs a pool of 30 lacs cyber security professionals right now!

Cyber-Security Ventures reported that there will be 35 lacs unfilled cyber security jobs in India by 2021.

However, there is a huge dearth of trained professionals to cater to this market, making this the ideal time to embark on an in-demand and recession-proof career in Cyber Security.
Job profiles and careers in Cyber Security:

The major industry drivers in the cyber security 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.
