New Delhi [India], February 9 (ANI/PNN): DataSpace Academy was set up with the aim to provide industry-relevant cybersecurity education. As technology continues to advance and the number of cyberattacks increases, cybersecurity has become one of the most in-demand fields in recent years. And this domain offers exciting and lucrative career opportunities for students.
Cybersecurity is a rapidly expanding field in India, with the demand for experts who can protect organizations and individuals from online threats on the rise. India is home to a fifth of the world's youth demographic, making it a hub of skilled labour. According to a report by the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), the cybersecurity market in India is expected to reach USD 35 billion by 2025.
Students with industry-relevant training can position themselves to become global leaders in terms of cybersecurity and other IT domains.
But there is a massive talent gap, making it difficult for industries to find suitable candidates for these vacant roles. The Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) and the ISSA survey revealed that 70 per cent of the participant companies believe that the global cyber security skills shortage has impacted their business operations.
And sadly, the education sector in India is yet to catch up with the growing demand for elaborate professional courses and technical education required for these jobs. However, DataSpace Academy aims to fill this knowledge gap. They aim to provide students with theoretical knowledge as well as practical skills and hands-on knowledge to succeed in the real-life workplace.
Why Cybersecurity Is a Vital Career Option?
There are several reasons why people are choosing cybersecurity as a career in India. Firstly, cybersecurity offers a high salary potential. According to Glassdoor, the average salary for a cybersecurity professional in India is around Rs 7.5 lakhs per year. Secondly, cybersecurity is a challenging and fulfilling career that allows individuals to make a real difference in the world. However, top executives in the cybersecurity field, such as Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), can earn upwards of 50-100 lakhs Indian Rupees per annum.
Dataspace Academy and who is Behind It?
