Pune: A thriving IT economy, good access to the country’s financial capital and availability of a skilled AI/ML certified talent pool are making the city one of the most sought-after locations by cybersecurity companies.“Work around cybersecurity is growing in a big way in Pune. It is not only the Indian companies but MNCs are also setting up and expanding cybersecurity capabilities in Pune,” Prasad Deore, senior director of Data Security Council of India (DSCI), said.The focus of these specialised global capacity centres is to catalyze growth, innovation and make the business future-ready.In the cybersecurity context, companies are working on creating sophisticated products to stay ahead of cybercriminals. “The future of product development in cybersecurity will hinge on creating AI-based defence mechanisms to field Generative AI based cyber-attacks,” Mahesh Kulkarni, a cyber-security expert from the BFSI space, said.For instance, by using deepfakes (via AI), it is potentially easier for cybercriminals to mimic an iris scan for a biometrics-based verification system.Companies are developing integrated security architecture which can ensure that these scams are prevented. This security architecture can have many layers of security programmed into it to safeguard customers. Development and implementation of quantum cryptography can be used to prevent online identity thefts, for instance.Quantum cryptography refers to the use of various cybersecurity methods for encrypting and transmitting secure data based on the naturally occurring and immutable laws of quantum mechanics.Recently, global cybersecurity company CrowdStrike set up a new 52,000 sqft facility in Pune nearly doubling the capacity of its previous facilities in the city.Global and domestic companies are also recruiting students who have done specialised courses in cyber security from educational institutes.“I recently got a campus placement from a company in their cybersecurity division. There is a lot to learn on the job as we are met with real-life hacking or scams,” Kharadi resident Raunak, who works in the BFSI sector, said. There are also plans to form a Pune chapter of cybersecurity professionals, an industry expert said. The startup space has seen a surge of companies engaged in cybersecurity and data privacy space. Director of startups Itellisecure and Privacient Sanyogeeta Rananaware, who is engaged in creating programs to promote cybersecurity, data privacy and AI awareness, said, “We started operations about four year ago, and every year we are doubling our team size. We are in talks with investors who want to invest in the company and see the potential in the space,” she said.
