Guest Speaks

I had a great time interacting M.Tech students at TIFAC-Core Cyber Security, Amrita University on a workshop on Information Security & Risk Management fundamentals. The University has a very good infrastructure and a lab dedicated for Cyber Forensics. I also got to know about some of the research work they are doing and is truly amazing that Amrita is leading the way when it comes to Internet Security in the country. I am quite positive that some of the greatest minds in the Cyber Security & Forensics industry in India will be from Amrita University. The Head of the Department and the staff members here are extremely passionate about what they are doing and are committed to give the best experience for its students & research faculties. I would strongly encourage more Industries to tap the Cyber Security & Forensics talent available at Amrita.”
