Bhubaneswar: With rising cases of data breaches and crisis due to cyber-attacks around the globe, cyber security is going to be the most demanding IT subject for students in near future, said cyber security expert Sruti Ranjan Sahoo.
Sahoo, who owns Digital Talent, a Bhubaneswar-based institute for ethical hacking and cyber security, was speaking a seminar on “Choosing Cyber Security as a Career” here.
The seminar was organised by Digital Talent.
The seminar was attended by 25 students from different city-bases institutes like ITER, Trident, Institute of Mathematics and Science and NIT. The main aim of organising the programme was to sensitise issues related to data hacking and encourage students to become an antidote to the global challenge at this point of time.
Sahoo briefed the students about various data breach cases around the globe and how Ethical Hacking could become the next big career option in the world.
“As data has become the most important treasure, companies and organizations across the globe have prioritized cyber security and the demand for ethical hackers has increased remarkably. All big cities are preparing their IT brains to balance the demand-supply equation and Odisha has to be very much in the race. After seeing the overwhelming presence and participation of students in the seminar I am sure, Odisha will not lag behind,” said Sahoo.
