WELCOME To Cysec

Centre for Cyber Security is the result of the ever-growing concerns about Cybercrime, Information Security, Data Security and the lack of awareness and expertise on how to handle them. The need for awareness, education and training on how to tackle these issues on an individual, community and national level is what drives us. Our main motivation is to empower students and professionals by helping them get globally recognized certifications. Such valued certifications will not only increase the professional proficiency of those certified, but also assure the employers that their employees are up to demanding tasks.

Owing to the roots of our founders in Lucknow, we have chosen this city to bring forth a change in the nationwide landscape of cybersecurity. Thus, we are very excited to bring forward an opportunity of a lifetime for our students and professionals. We, in association with ISACA aim to become one-stop shop which caters to everything related to cybersecurity.
