Microsoft CyberShikshaa will concentrate on growing the programme, leveraging industry partnerships, and providing specialised training for BFSI careers.

Microsoft expanded its CyberShikshaa programme on November 27 in collaboration with the Data Security Council of India (DSCI), Tata Strive, and ICT Academy to create and upskill a new cybersecurity workforce in India.

Hopes of Microsoft regarding jobs opportunities for women

In the next three years, Microsoft hopes to reach 45,000 women and underserved youth with technical skills for careers in cybersecurity, as well as provide internships or job opportunities for 10,000 learners.

Microsoft has trained 1,100 women to date, with 800 of them currently working in cybersecurity. The company based in the United States has also trained 5,000 underserved youth members through the Cybersecurity Beginners modules.

CyberShikshaa will focus on scaling the programme, leveraging industry partnerships, and conducting specialised training for careers in the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) industries in its fifth year.

Programme to expand its reach across the country

The programme will expand its reach into semi-urban and rural areas of the country, offering AI/ML training for cybersecurity product development and enabling cybersecurity certifications via an enhanced Cybersecurity Beginners programme called 'Ready4Cybersecurity.' More than 10,000 rural underserved youth members will be certified as 'Ready4Cybersecurity.'

The CyberShikshaa training curriculum, which began in 2018 with DSCI, includes more than 400 hours of training in several modules, including Information Security, Application Security, Cloud Security, Cyber Forensics, Cryptography, and Network Security.

The trainings are conducted in more than 100 centres across India, including Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Delhi NCR, Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttarakhand, and West Bengal.
