NBT NSD Coverage-29th Oct, 2013The seminar highlighting the need for more “Reverse Engineers” to counter Cyber Attacks in India was organised to attract an army of professionals.
With incidents of cyber attacks on the rise, the growing need for credible and valuable Information Security professionals in India and especially in Reverse Engineering cannot be overlooked. Keeping this in view, the National Security Database (NSD), an initiative of the Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC), in collaboration with the Ground Zero Summit 2013, organised a “Seminar on Reverse Engineering” on October 28, 2013 in New Delhi.
The seminar threw light on the need for more Reverse Engineers in the country to counter hacking, insecure coding and piracy. Experts opined that Reverse Engineering is likely to become a promising job opportunity in the IT and software development sector, as the $100 billion information technology industry seeks to chart a new course by fostering software product companies.
At present there are less than 5,000 Reverse Engineering experts currently in India. NSD in collaboration with various Academic Institutions across India aims to increase the number of Reverse Engineering professionals in the country to 1,00,000 by 2015.
The seminar was organised at NSIT Campus in Dwarka, New Delhi that was attended by hundreds of future software professionals. The keynote was addressed by Mr. Rajshekhar Murthy, Director, National Security Database.
