American Accredited University to produce cyber security Professionals at CGC Landran

 CHANDIGARH: We are living in a dynamic technological world where every day we are hit by around 1 million malware software designed to disrupt, damage, or gain unauthorized access to a computer system. This surge has given rise to the demand of cyber security professionals in the world. Statistics reveal that India requires 5 Lakh cyber security professionals every year but regrettably it is producing just 40,000. This huge gap can be bridged by preparing our students with a career which can serve the society for next few decades. This was stated by Abel Daniel, Director for Academic Alliances, EC-Council University, an online American Accredited University headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico and dedicated to cyber security. Abel was at Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Landran to sign a Memorandum of Understanding which would offer globally acceptable online programs and internships to the students of CGC Landran.

The international Partnership to bring into being future cyber security professionals will offer global exposure to the students. The students will be mentored by the US faculty comprising of real-time Industry practitioners. The assessment criterion and credit based system will be applied to the choice of their course. The future perspective of these courses include direct entry into the US based Masters Program as well as the possibility to get direct job opportunity globally.  

“Cyber security has become the most sought after profession because of the scale in which cyber crime is happening and thus, this MOU is a virtuous attempt to offer an edge to the regular academic curriculum” said Dr. P.N. Hrisheekesha, Campus Director, CGC Landran.
