Building India's Cybersecurity Skill Index: A Public-Private Partnership
National Skill Development Corporation of India, under the aegis of Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, has taken a multistakeholder, public-private partnership approach to building cybersecurity skills with a target of building capacity of 1.2 million cybersecurity professionals in the country. The shortage of skills across security functions is the biggest hurdle in responding to evolving threats, which makes Indian organizations in all sectors vulnerable.
To help meet this challenge, NSDC is creating national occupational standards certification. Some of the areas of focus include creating experts in IAM, application security, endpoint security, network and penetration testing, forensics, security infrastructure, SOC, compliance and audits.
This session discusses:
- Various models for skill development with public and private collaboration;
- Training methods and technology platforms to stay relevant; and
- Building in-house cybersecurity skills to fight evolving threats.
