World Trade Center Bhubaneswar designs MDP to train students and professionals in Cyber Security

Police Commissionerate, NLUO, IIIT Bhubaneswar are partners

Bhubaneswar: Recently Facebook and Cambridge Analytica are in news for alleged stealing of data of millions of users and thereby invading privacy and jeopardizing many people’s lives through leaking personal data. In this context, Mark Zuckerberg’s apology last week at the US Congressional testimony raises enough questions about our awareness and control over our cyber engagements. The Cybersecurity capacity building is now a priority for government and private players.

In this backdrop, the World Trade Centre (WTC) Bhubaneswar is organizing a one-day intensive Management Development Programme (MDP) on “Cyber Security & Data Protection in the Digital World” on 18th of April at CIME, Mancheswar, Bhubaneswar. The MDP module shall touch upon the social, regulatory and technical aspects of Cyber Security. This much- needed training is being delivered in collaboration with Police Commissionerate-Bhubaneswar-Cuttack, National Law University Odisha (NLUO) and International Institute of Information Technology, Bhubaneswar (IIITB). Resource persons and experts have been drawn from these partner institutes to provide a brief overview of cybersecurity and let participants learn the nitty-gritty about cybersecurity and data protection.

Police Commissioner Shri YB Khurania, Director of IIITB Prof (Dr.) Gopal Krishna Nayak, Assistant Director of World Trade Centre Ms. Nimeshika Natarajan and Professor RN Sahu of CIME will inaugurate the session. Prof Kamala Kanta Dash of Kalinga Kusum Foundation will have the ice breaking and introductory session to familiarize participants with the varied aspects of cybersecurity. Ms. Anila Anand of the Crime Branch will share the experience of fighting cybercrime and how best citizens can stay aware and alert.
