According to the news released by a source it is said that NASSCOM in collaboration with security firm Symantec, and Data Security Council of India (DSCI) launched the National Occupational Standards for ten cyber security job roles with the corresponding Qualification Packs (QP) in line with the National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF).
it is expected to create $35 billion revenue opportunity and employment opportunities for about a million professionals by 2025 for India, IT industry body Nasscom said.
“We estimate that cyber security is about $2.5-3 billion or about 2 per cent of the close to USD 150 billion Indian IT sector. With the sector on track to reach $350 billion by 2025, we estimate 10 per cent of this to be cybersecurity,” Nasscom Chair Cyber Security Task Force Rajendra Pawar said
Talking about Symantec’s on-going association with NASSCOM, Sanjay Rohatgi, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific and Japan, Symantec said “Building the next generation of cyber professionals is key to securing India’s critical information infrastructure, battling cybercrime and making the ‘Digital India’ initiative successful.”

The government of India initiative the Digital India is on its way to expansion, according to the latest news released regarding the digital India it is said that the Cisco is looking to integrate security architecture n Digital India.
“In the past customers have defended themselves by buying lot of technology solutions from many different vendors and that hasn’t served them particularly well. It has created lots of complexity and therefore cost of operating those different vendors is high and has a relatively low effectiveness. So, best of breed has not really served the customer very well and as we look forward and think about what is going to happen in the next five years, we see the digital transformation of organisations really further complicating the existing security landscape,” Stephen Dane, Managing Director of Cisco’s Global Security Sales Organization (GSSO) for Asia Pacific, Japan and Greater China told FE.
”This is a bit of a problem because if you have a centralised system, like Cisco has one in Australia and Singapore where it gets lot of data and analyse it, but if it has to replicate everything in India, getting the same set of skills and people is going to be a challenge. The other way to look at is that the confidence level of the customers goes up because they are confident that their data is within the country and not going outside. So the capability to start opening up more and more stuff to the internet and to the people start to increase. So it is a mixed bag,” says a company official.
“Our expectation is that the government will look at cyber security as a particular area to legislate on. I believe this will have a big impact particularly at the board level around how important security is seen through them because in the US that is certainly happening. We have not actually necessarily stopped many of the massive breaches but the disclosure element really forces the business holistically and from the top to consider security as an accountability,” explains Dane.
