In the days of instant networking to byte-sized learning, a cyber-security breach can have a major repercussion. There is a growing demand for professionals who can prevent such malware. In a bid to grow its network security training portfolio and to cater to the increasing demand for network security trained professionals, Teamlease Skills University has partnered with CompTIA, a skills certification and education service provider. The development comes in wake of the recent WannaCry Ransomware attack which exposed network and system vulnerabilities on a global scale. Through this strategic partnership, TeamLease Skills University will officially be able to conduct training for its clients in CompTIA certifications like Security+, CSA+, Network+, Server + and many more products that are developed for securing networks and systems.
As per CISCO & IDC reports, the demand for cyber security professionals is projected to grow 6 million jobs by 2019 and revenues for security-related hardware, software, and services will go beyond $100 billion by 2020.
Commenting on the partnership, Kunal Sen, Senior Vice President, and SBU Head, Teamlease Services said “At TeamLease we have always believed in skilling the masses for jobs that are going to see exponential growth now or in the near future. Cyber security is one field where even a fresh college graduate draws INR 4-5 lakh per annum. This is because cyber threats are evolving and need to be looked out for constantly by experts in the field, making cyber security an indispensable part of any company’s strategy. We are excited to partner along with the leading provider of skills certification, CompTIA. We both acknowledge the opportunity we have to develop world class network and system security professionals in India because the person with the certification is the one that is going to get hired.”
Pradipto Chakrabarty, Regional Director, CompTIA India said “The IT industry in India is going through a very dynamic phase.
