  1. Information Security is an interesting domain. There are many companies globally which are offfering the certification programs for a cost. I was really surprised to see such kind of a training programs offered at free for Indian students particularly.They also offered me scholarship for completion of Certification. Everything was beyond my expectations. Their commitment to the community is remarkable. I would appeal every one, whenever it opens again, please do participate in the program if you are from Rural areas of J&k or Assam
