The MoU allows collaboration on courses to enhance skills in the cybersecurity domain, according to a statement.
CYBERVERSE offers a portfolio of cybersecurity training programs, ranging from basic courses to expert level courses, catering to the needs of academia, industry, and government sectors. Courses offered by CYBERVERSE are consistent with the Qualification Packs of the National Skill Development Corporation and NASCOM.
As a part of its cybersecurity skill development initiative, CYBERVERSE has established a state-of-the-art cybersecurity Phygital lab in Mysuru. It is planning to establish several Centres of Excellence (CoE) across India over the next few years.
“The aim of this agreement is to jointly create cybersecurity courses, promote and train students and professionals, create jobs opportunities, and bridge the digital divide. IEEE Blended Learning Programme (BLP) aims to upskill young professionals in emerging areas such as Cybersecurity”, said Srikanth Chandrasekaran, Senior Director, IEEE India Operations.
The BLP certificate programs are developed in conjunction with industry leaders and vetted by experts to ensure their effectiveness in content and learning experience. It is backed by micro-learning modules, application modules, and data analytics, ultimately leading to a Joint certificate, which aims at bridging the skills gap.
“CYBERVERSE is delighted to partner with IEEE, a globally recognized leader in the realm of technology, in developing a deep pool of cybersecurity professionals in India and beyond”, said Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar , 27th Head of the Wadiyar dynasty and Chairman, Advisory Board, Cyberverse Foundation.
