Kanpur: The Department of Science and Technology (DST) has approved Rs14.43 crore for establishment of a Centre for Cyber Security in IIT Kanpur.
The DST under the Ministry of Science & Technology has approved the grant for a period of five years and the amount will be used to purchase equipment for establishing the centre for cyber security in the prestigious institute, a statement from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) said.
Prof Manindra Agarwal, a Padma Shri recipient, is the Principal Investigator of the project and he will look after it. Specialists from IIT Bombay, IIT Kharagpur, ISI Kolkata, IIIT Delhi and MNIT Jaipur will work at the Centre after its establishment here, Agarwal said.
Faculty members and students will get a lot of opportunities to work in the field of cyber security and learn about it, he said. Agarwal said the institute is emphasising on the works related to cyber security.
