The program is an initiative to introduce cyber security training at the school level for the betterment of children’s future and the society as the dependency on the digital space is even expanding.
“India needs to create mass scale ecosystem of young cyber defenders and WhizHack& IITJ TISC endeavour is to build a sustainable & self-reliant digitally secure India. We want teenagers to work on gamified cybersecurity challenges based around cracking codes, finding and fixing security flaws and dissecting digital trails left behind by criminals, all as part of a game. Through these programs, young people will learn the concepts and ideas that real agents use when dealing with real cyberattacks and lay the foundation for their bright future in this flourishing industry," said Kaushik Ray, co-founder, and COO of WhizHack Technologies.
