Our human society is adopting digital technologies in every sphere of life leading to generation of large volumes of complex data. IoT (Internet of Things) and Industry 4.0 are adding to this volume of complex data with wireless sensors networks generating data by the second. And this data to be protected from theft and manipulation that lead to loss of data integrity.  This forms the domain of Cyber Security which involves protection of data & networks and predicting, preventing & mitigating effects of cyber attacks. Thus Cyber Security demands a different way of thinking in addition to possessing the necessary technical knowhow.

NU’s B.Tech in Cyber Security is a 4-year undergraduate programme that prepares students to identify and assess cyber threats, design, configure and implement solutions to secure networks including global, industry-specific and networks critical to the nation such as governance, banking, energy, transportation, etc. using the latest technologies and tools for encryption, firewalls and malware protection.
