M.Tech in Cyber Security

Overview of the Programme

Global Information Security Workforce Study (GISWS) conducted by (ISC) 2 has predicted that the world will face a shortfall of 1.8 million Cyber security workers by 2022. More than 209,000 Cyber security jobs in the U.S. are unfilled, and postings are up 74% over the past five years (Steve Morgan, Cyber security ventures). India emerges as the third most vulnerable country in terms of risk of cyber threats, such as malware, spam, and ransom ware. REVA Academy for Corporate Excellence, REVA University, and AforeCybersec Technology Pvt. Ltd, a premier service provider in Cyber security solutions jointly offer a one year/ two-year PGD/M. Tech in Cyber security program for fast-rising working professionals integrating next-generation tools, technologies, simulators, global industry certifications and much more.

The impetus of this program is to cater to this rising demand for highly skilled Cyber security professionals for the global market. This unique program is designed and delivered by the industry experts and focus on providing in-depth knowledge and skills on Incident Management, SOC operations, Identity and Access management etc. The program will extensively run in the virtual environment provided by Cyber Range tool incorporating real-time scenario-based learning.
This is a 100% skill based program designed for working professionals to enhance their career in mid and senior positions in security-related areas. Hence, the program is completely practical and lab-based using either proprietary or open software used in the Cyber security market today.

Exclusive Cyber Range as simulator: Cyber Range is an infrastructure deployed to reproduce a real infrastructure - like a test lab - to train your team(s) to defend against cyber-attacks scenarios. The participants will get access to this virtual environment on cyber warfare scenarios throughout the program.
Working with live Security Operations Center (SOC): The participants of the program will get to work with a live Security Operations Center (SOC) at the REVA University campus. This facility will provide them with real-time experience in detecting, analyzing and responding to Cyber security incidents using a combination of technology
solutions and a strong set of processes. They can monitor all the activities across an organization’s networks, endpoints, servers, and databases around the clock, to ensure timely detection and response of security incidents. The training on SOC is a major differentiator of our program creating cyber security professionals with ready-to-deploy skill sets.
IBM Mastery Badge Certification in Security Intelligence Analyst with QRadar: IBM QRadar SIEM provides deep visibility into the network, user, and application activity. It provides collection, normalization, correlation, and secure storage of events, flows, asset profiles, and vulnerabilities. QRadar SIEM classifies suspected attacks and policy violations as offenses. Extensive lab exercises are provided to allow participants an insight into the routine work of an IT Security Analyst operating the IBM QRadar SIEM platform.
Based on successful completion of the program, the participants will receive a Mastery Level Digital Badge from IBM which is a cross-industry global recognition of technical skills as a Security Analyst.

NASSCOM DSCI Certification

 “Security Analyst” Certification from NASSCOM DSCI is integrated into the program, which is a widely recognized industry certification. The certification will provide the participants the following skills:
- Coordinate responses to information security incidents.
- Contribute to managing information security
- Install and configure information security devices
- Contribute to information security audits etc.
