Nasscom President R Chandrashekhar said, “The need of the hour is that government and the industry should work together to address cyber security issues.”
“The partnership between Nasscom and Symantec will enable the industry to map existing and future skill requirements. It will also help bridge the demand-supply gap,” he added.
Symantec President and CEO Michael A Brown said that with the partnership with Nasscom, we are taking the first big step towards building cyber security skills in India.
Nasscom and Data Security Council of India (DSCI) recently launched the Nasscom Cyber Security Task Force that aims to build India as a global hub for providing cyber security solutions, developing cyber security R&D plan and develop a skilled workforce of cyber security experts.
The task force will study the Indian cyber security ecosystem to identify issues and challenges and develop an action plan to address the priority issues.
