ThinkCyber, a Tel Aviv-based Cybersecurity training and solutions company, is set to make inroads in the Indian market with an investment of $10 million.  

The company said, it will invest the amount in a span of three years and will be training students and corporates in India with its proprietary tools and training programmes such as Cyberium High-End Simulator and Specto technology. These products identify threats on a real-time basis and prepare students to tackle the most innovative cyberthreats, it added. 

“India is a growing economy with younger workforce. With this we have growing burden of cyberattacks in the market today and students opting for cybersecurity as a career are looking for a transition in career that makes them an expert in the field,” Anuradha Choudhary, founder & chief executive officer of ThinkCyber India, said, speaking at the launch.

“Women especially those belonging to the tier II and tier III cities, are still lagging behind, even though they possess enough technological skills. It’s now time for us to help them get ahead in the game," she added. 

ThinkCyber India’s training programs will equip students with the knowledge but also would help them to become job-ready within a short span of time along with building confidence from starting with basic introductions to fundamental concepts of Linux, Python, Forensics, and more. David Shiffman, CEO & Founder ThinkCyber Israel said.

 An April 2021 report by professional recruitment services firm Michael Page India said that the country needs to have over 1.5 million unfulfilled job vacancies in cybersecurity by 2025. As per the report, the cybersecurity field is currently experiencing a 43% talent shortage with skills such as application development security, cloud security, threat intelligence and data privacy being the most in-demand in India as well as in entire the Asia Pacific region.
