SPECIALISATION IN CYBER SECURITY
IN ACADEMIC COLLABORATION WITH QUICK HEAL ACADEMY

Chitkara University has collaborated with Quick Heal Academy with an objective of increasing Cyber Security professionals in the industry and has introduced specialization in Cyber Security for CSE students after 4th semester.

Program Overview

Cyber security is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, security includes both cyber security and physical security. Computer forensics is the application of investigation and analysis techniques to gather and preserve evidence from a particular computing device in a way that is suitable for presentation in a court of law.

The goal of computer forensics is to perform a structured investigation while maintaining a documented chain of evidence to find out exactly what happened on a computing device and who was responsible for it.

The financial sector alone is expected to hire over 2 lakh people while telcos, utility sectors, power, oil & gas, airlines, government (law & order and e-governance) will hire the rest. The country’s information security market is expected to grow by 18% to reach Rs 1,415 crore in 2013. Despite a continuing economic slowdown cyber security would continue on an upward trajectory, reaching $86 billion in 2016, up from $60 billion in 2012.
