Cyber Security Jobs At Large As India Goes Digital
India is primed to witness a bracing change as the Indian government has successively dipped their toes into the digital stream. The program to turn the country into a digital economy has been met with a great deal of buzz as initiatives such as Digital Locker, demonetization and the successive promotion of digital wallet have opened the floodgates to endless possibilities. This is triggering a fresh wave of economic growth, attracting more investment, and creating new jobs across multiple sectors.
Yet with the entire boon comes a great price as it poses a big challenge in cybersecurity. As we all know, cybersecurity in India has nothing to boast about and this move towards a digital economy can aggravate the situation further. An increasing amount of consumer and citizen data will be stored digitally and a large number of transactions will be carried out online, leaving the net a cesspool of viable data for malicious people to attack.
Cyber criminals are not only targeting big corporate houses; government agencies, banks, and research institutes are also in a constant deadlock with hacking and spying frequently. This calls for a more robust framework for cybersecurity, something that the IT security market is trying to facilitate rising. This space is a lucrative career option at the moment generating a large number of jobs. From engineers to lawyers, project managers to auditors, everyone has a role to play in growing this industry.
