NASSCOM Certified Security Analyst

IT Security is a growing area of concern with damages on account of security breaches estimated to cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021.
Globally, the scale and magnitude of data breach has increased enormously over the past few years. This has pushed risk associated with IT at the top of the international agenda, as high-profile breaches and other security failures could endanger the global economy. The intention of such attacks could be industrial espionage, terrorism, military espionage or simply to cause widespread misuse of user data. With advancement in technology, unauthorized users and hackers are able to attack remotely without any fear of being identified. The following are few instances of security attacks that have led to huge financial losses and also caused widespread panic amongst users:

  • Restaurant app Zomato suffered a major security breach in May 2017 when data of some 17 million users was stolen.
  • In what can surely be termed as one of the biggest-ever breaches of financial data in India, debit cards of some 3.2 million users was compromised, enabling fraudsters to steal funds. The worst affected banks are said to be SBI, HDFC, ICICI, Yes Bank and Axis Bank.
  • With the increased use of crypto currencies, online payments and e-wallets, fraud and theft in these channels has also increased. The recent theft in Bitcoins is another example of the same.

This has led to unprecedented demand for certified security professionals. Organizations from small to large scale are facing a huge challenge in sourcing the right candidates to protect their IT infrastructure and sensitive data. NASSCOM estimates India alone will need 1 million security professionals by 2020 to meet the demands of its rapidly growing economy. This program would open a whole new career avenue for learners.
