Recognized by NEAT 2.0, Ministry of Education

With over 20,00,000 jobs available in India alone, it is increasingly becoming difficult for companies to find good cybersecurity professionals. Organizations no longer want to trust professionals who become “ethical hackers” by simply passing an online objective-based exam, as they seldom have the real-world perspective and confidence to execute the job once given. Professionals with incomplete knowledge are not only putting their organization at risk, but also their Nation, as they handle sensitive projects impacting the economy of the country.

The National Security Database is the only not-for-profit program, well recognized and respected by various Corporate and Government organizations for its stringent process and hands-on lab exams for assessing the credibility of a professional.
