Mumbai: Spelling alarm for the country's corporate and defense
establishments, a recent survey shows that less than one percent of Indian
IT students are skilled in secure programming.
The survey-cum-test "The Talent Crisis in InfoSec" was was conducted by
EC-Council, a global leader in InfoSec certifications and training.
Unveiling the findings, EC-Council president Jay Bavisi said that a mere
13 percent of engineering students were found trainable in the InfoSec
domain, with nearly 86 percent unskilled even in its basics.
"The world is recognizing vulnerabilities, leading to cyber threats and
attacks. India holds a key position in the global IT and IT-enabled
services map. Every country is taking steps towards building a talent
pipeline towards a secure future and we urge Indian industry and academia
to address the concerns to retain their leadership in the domain," Bavisi
