A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by cybersecurity firm Kaspersky and the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) to collaboratively promote and nurture the growth of educational and research projects in the field of cybersecurity.

Adrian Hia, Managing Director for Asia Pacific at Kaspersky, and Professor Milind Atrey, Dean R&D of IIT Bombay, signed the Memorandum of Understanding.

The agreement between the two parties demonstrates their shared dedication to enhancing their working relationship in order to increase the security of the computer environment. Sharing knowledge and skills, producing teaching materials, conducting events to raise awareness of cybersecurity, and giving away awards and book prizes to encourage students to pursue cybersecurity jobs are all part of the project.

“Our partnership with IIT Bombay aims to enhance cybersecurity education and research in India,” Hia stated in a statement. We must collaborate in order to build the knowledge and abilities required for defence against cyberthreats, which are constantly expanding in scope and sophistication. The result of this relationship will be a higher standard of cybersecurity expertise being produced in India and a more secure online environment.

In accordance with the agreement, Kaspersky and IIT Bombay will work together to develop educational resources and programmes on cybersecurity, plan and publicise events to increase awareness of the topic, and sponsor awards and book prizes to inspire students to pursue careers in cybersecurity.

“Giving our young generation the knowledge and abilities required to defend against these risks is incredibly vital,” said Atrey. “Cyber threats are ever-increasing with technological breakthroughs and automation.

“With this partnership with Kaspersky, a reputable and well-known cybersecurity company, IIT Bombay will be able to make a substantial contribution to cybersecurity research and education. We anticipate a productive partnership with Kaspersky,” he continued.
