Professor Ranjan Bose, Director, IIIT-Delhi said “Cutting-edge research and innovation is of utmost importance in this ever-expanding domain of cybersecurity, where the adversaries continue to get more sophisticated, multifaceted, with access to newer techniques and tools. In parallel, the attack-surface is also growing exponentially. As we move forward, artificial intelligence (AI) will also be necessary to identify many of these threats, thwart attacks, effectively respond to cybercrime and perhaps predict some of the attacks. The faculty members at IIIT-D, together with Data Security Council of India (DSCI), will be addressing some of these important challenges that will hopefully shape the future of cyber-security.”
Vinayak Godse, Vice President, Data Security Council of India, said, “DSCI will promote expertise among professionals at the regional and national level, along with providing them opportunities to participate in strategic cyber-security initiatives.”
