Online Cyber Security Courses

Cyber security has become an indispensable necessity for governments around the world. With the growing number of cyber attacks upon critical infrastructures and governmental systems it has now become imperative to develop cyber security capabilities.

India is increasingly facing the threats of cyber warfare due to absence of cyber security capabilities in India. Cyber security in India cannot be improved till we strengthen the cyber security scenario in India. We need to develop a cyber security policy of India and strictly follow the same for better results.

Another related area where India must pay attention is the cyber security skills development. Cyber security skills development in India is still not up to the mark. There are very few educational institutions in India that are providing cyber security courses in India. Even few are those institutions that provide online cyber security courses in India.

Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) is providing online and distance learning cyber security courses in India and abroad. PTLB is also providing distance learning courses for cyber forensics in India and abroad.

The basic level courses of Perry4Law are provided by PTLB through the PTLB e-learning platform whereas highly specialised and domain specific courses and trainings are provided by Perry4Law Techno Legal ICT Training Centre (PTLITC).

PTLB is also providing online and distance learning courses on cyber law for international students. PTLB is also managing the exclusive continuing cyber law education in India for lifelong learning purposes.

National Skill Development Authority Of India

Indian education system has failed to deliver what is needed in the present dynamic and highly competitive environment. With the national boundaries opening to world at large, adequate skills are required to meet the global demands.

Naturally India is facing many difficulties to cope up with the requirements to manage various tasks that require domain specific expertise. This is so because our educational system has failed to keep pace with the present times.

Skills development in India is urgently needed to manage these issues. A special emphasis must be given techno legal skills development in India that is presently missing. Till our educational systems are able to cope up with these qualitative demands, we must stress upon use of distance learning for skills development in India.

Further, virtual campuses in India can also fill the skill gaps that we are currently facing. PTLB e-learning platform is providing techno legal courses and trainings in India that aims at inculcating skills among the masses.

Meanwhile, the Indian government is planning to overhaul the National Skill Development Council (NSDC) and planning to convert it into a National Skill Development Authority (NSDA).

The key advantage of this arrangement would be that NSDA would have the power to draw funds from the government and spend it with the states and other partner agencies, which is not possible presently. This scheme would maintain the three-tier structure that also includes the National Skill Development Corporation.

The Indian government is planning to provide around Rs 40,000 crore in over five years to provide skill to around 3 crore people during the period. The government will also partner with private sector to implement the ambitious scheme.

This is a good step in the right direction and Perry4Law and Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) welcome this move of Indian government.
