      Hi ,

      Suman this side Rajeev Kapil from Institute of Information Security, good to hear that you are pursuing Ethical hacking with distance learning program but this not enough to under stand the concepts of Information Security.

      You have to do the proper course of Information security i.e. Six months Information Security course.

      Thanks and Regards,
      Rajeev Kapil

    Hi Premnath, I would like to answer your question.
    First of all, check whether you want to be in this field or not. I mean it will require really hard dedication to be security expert. Its like you are in computer’s & networks every-time…even in your sleep. Check if you have at least sufficient basic knowledge of cyber security and practical hacking. Here I used word ‘practical’ because many times you know some things by reading articles & blogs but don’t know by doing it. So it doesn’t work like that. Cyber security is one of the fields where your skills matter other that your certs. Of course certifications are also important but many times guys have various certifications and don’t know things.
    About the jobs, almost every MNC recruit security experts. BUT major difference is they require experience and certifications. No one will give all security keys to any newbie who has bunch of certifications. So start by reading articles and searching for entry level positions. You can also try to look closely on government sites. Till then try by exploring things in cyber world by your own.
    best luck!

      Thanks Gargeya and sorry for such a delayed response. You know it’s so ironic that i was going through this site 4 years down the lane and found your response to my comment. As you said, to get into the field, lot of basic knowledge need to be garnered and i did the same …. had worked hard, completed few certs in information security and now i am into that field for quite some time, also would have to say that i had some luck in getting my first break. But the search is still on for getting into the government sector.
      And to those who want to break into this field, my only advice would be to keep updating yourself with all the basic stuffs, there are lot of materials available over the internet and never loose your hope.

    I want details regarding the vacancies and entrance exam

  14. Premnath on January 8, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    Hi Priya

    I really liked your post. I have a 2 years of experience in networking and would really like to push my career into the field of IT security.
    Please let me know few organizations(public sectors) or companies where the Cyber security professionals are recruited.
    It would be even more helpful if you could suggest me some job sites also for applying to these posts (permanent as well as internships).

    Thanks
