Cyber Security & Threat Intelligence specialization is designed to address the industry’s increasing demand for skilled security professionals in the public and private sectors. This program is specifically meant to improve mindfulness and redesign the abilities of engineering graduates. The program is designed by industry experts keeping in mind the current industry needs vis-à-vis academic proficiency of the students. This specially designed program helps to bridge the gap between industry and academia so as to create an employable workforce ready to take on challenging roles in the domain of cybersecurity.

Specialization also focuses on knowing the dark web, adversaries, and their tools, tactics, and procedures (TTP). Using this knowledge students can build intelligence-led security programs, where the intelligence gathered on the field about adversaries leads to security decisions and investments. It builds a solid foundation towards understanding various aspects of Cyber Threat Intelligence and provides a quick kick start towards targeted and result-oriented threat research.
