India is leader in supplying software that controls the critical infrastructure and businesses throughout the world. The Internet connects people, systems and galaxy of networks and an effort is required to protect digital systems from online threats as we defend our bodies from illness. After the two successful editions of cyber security workshops in Ahmedabad (2013) and Bangalore (2014) 3rd Edition is scheduled in Bangalore again. This timely workshop is aimed to offer awareness for the Government and Private sector, aspiring Hacking and Cyber Security enthusiasts.
