As per the report published by the EC Council (International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants) in October, 2013 by the title ‘The Talent Crisis in Infosec’, Information Security manpower in India is extremely weak in terms of the skill set. This creates a gap between the skilled manpower requirements and their availability in the public and private sector, in the field of Information Security domain.
In India, there will be a requirement of 2015 Information Security professionals by the year 2015. These professionals will be required in the Government departments, Call Centres, BPOs, Telecom Operators, Universities, Schools, Colleges, Hospitals and other institutions. These institutions are more prone to the cyber attacks.
As per the study students below 1% have the basic required skill set in the Information Security and around 13% students have an understanding of concepts required for training on Information Security.
