What our students say
I am incredibly grateful for my journey into cybersecurity, which began at the Centre for Information Security, Forensics and Cyber Resilience (C-ISFCR), PES University. From the moment I enrolled in courses such as Cryptography, Network Security, and Information Security, I knew I had found my passion.
The faculty at the center delivered the concepts with remarkable clarity and effectiveness, always emphasizing their practical applications. Engaging case studies and hands-on labs further enhanced my understanding and allowed me to apply what I learned in class. Thanks to these activities, I developed a solid foundation in security concepts and fell head over heels in love with the field.
When I pursued my Masters in Computer Science at Purdue University, I had the opportunity to delve deeper into cybersecurity through courses like Computer Security and Security Analytics. The strong foundation I had built during my time at ISFCR gave me a significant advantage in these courses and even during job interviews. The practical nature of these courses enabled
me to excel in various security engineer interviews, ultimately leading me to my current role as a Security Engineer at Goldman Sachs. I owe a great deal of my success to the invaluable support provided by the center and PES University.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Prof. Prasad Honnavalli and his team for their unwavering dedication and mentorship. Their guidance and expertise shaped me into the cybersecurity professional I am today. I am profoundly thankful for the exceptional education, practical experiences, and career opportunities that ISFCR and PES University have provided me. My journey into cybersecurity has been truly transformative, and I am excited to continue making a positive impact in this dynamic field.

The curriculum of the cyber security courses was highly relevant and up to date with current affairs. The case studies were extremely interesting and the hands on exercises were very beneficial. The multiple discussions we had in class allowed us to think not from the point of view of a student but from an attackers view. This allowed us to capture the depth of the problem easily. Taking this course has helped me immensely at my workplace.
