According to a report by Team lease digital, India is having nearly 40,000 vacancies in the field of Cyber Security as of May 2023. But they could not able to fill 30% of the position due to lack of skills in the candidates. But there aren’t enough people with the right skills to fill all the jobs. This means that many businesses struggle to find people who know how to keep their information secure. Some of the skills required are how to keep data private, how to protect computers connected to the Internet, and how to use artificial intelligence to find and stop hackers. Working well with others and solving problems is also important. IT Auditor, Information Security Analyst and Computer Forensics Analyst are some of the top jobs in this field.
According to Sunil Chemmanakotil, a key member at TeamLease Digital, it’s important for companies in India to be cautious as they increasingly use digital technology. This makes the Internet more vulnerable to attacks by bad guys. He also said that these bad guys try to attack in many different ways, like using viruses or tricking people. Therefore, it is important for companies to have a plan to protect themselves from these attacks. To protect ourselves and keep our digital world safe, we must be alert and prepared for new issues such as attacks using artificial intelligence, vulnerabilities in Internet-connected devices, and risks in virtual reality. If we do this, we can make our digital world stronger and more successful.
In the first few months of 2023 ( 2023 – Q1), many businesses across the country were attacked more than 2000 times each week. This is 18% more than the previous year. The healthcare industry is the most targeted, with around 7.7% of attacks targeting it. Teamlease Digital found this information.
