Presidency to offer cyber security course
Kolkata, Feb 18 : Presidency University is coming up with a specialised course in cyber security at its new campus, which will start functioning in the next academic year, the vice chancellor said, here on Monday.
"Cyber crime is big now-a-days. It is bigger than the general crime. A single post can be responsible for dire consequences. You have thought of training students in cyber crime. Not just for students, but this initiative will also open new avenues for people who deal with civil and criminal cases," she said.
The CM announced her government's plan of setting up a 'Centre of Excellence for Cyber crime' under the Information Technology department.
"It is in the process, as information technology is very important. If the data that reaches all our houses is used judiciously, it can bear good results," she said.
Banerjee said the government has provided land (whose market value is around Rs 300 crore) free to the university.
