The University Grants Commission (UGC) today launched cyber security and data protection programmes for undergraduate and postgraduate students as a part of the Cyber Jaagrookta Diwas 2022 celebration.

“This syllabus aims to create more aware, responsive and responsible digital citizens, thereby contributing effectively to an overall healthy cyber security posture and ecosystem,” the official statement from UGC reads.

The institutes have been given the permission to invite cyber security or computer/IT qualified faculty, or experts from the industry or subject matter experts to impart knowledge with regards to these courses.
