With the recent surge in cyberattacks due to the pandemic, the dire need for cybersecurity measures is proved to be of utmost importance. India has witnessed cyberattacks in some of the big companies like Cognizant, Big Basket, etc in recent days. They were also a victim of a ransomware attack.

From network and data security to I.T. governance, risk measurement, cybersecurity is a growing industry. It is estimated to be worth over $300B by 2025, according to C.B.
