The Department of Computer Engineering organized a five days Faculty Development Program (FDP) on “Security and its Multiple Aspects”, technically sponsored by IBM, TRDDC and ISACA. It has been an innovative approach at bridging the gap between Academia and Industry by collaborating with Industry giants and inviting some of their experts as Resource Persons to deliver state-of-the-art sessions on the multiple aspects of Security viz Information Security, Web Security, Cloud Security, Critical Infrastructure Security, IoT Security, Mobile Security and Cyber Security.
An important highlight of this program was an exclusive session of Panel Discussion, wherein some of the top notch Industry Experts participated in a highly interactive session with the participants. In line with our theme, we invited three eminent guests for the Panel Discussion – Mr. Shashikant Satbhai ( Expertise in Information Security and Freelancer with ISACA Pune), Mr. Mahesh Paradkar (Expertise in Cloud Security, Senior Development Manager IBM Pune), Advocate Vaibhav Salunkhe (Advocate & Cyber Law Consultant). It was a lively learning experience for participants as their different queries were being answered by the concerned expert.
All sessions were well-received by the participants. Sessions by Dr. Sachin Lodha (Principal Scientist, TCS Innovation Labs Pune, TRDDC), Mr. Mahesh Paradkar (Sr. Development Manager, IBM Security Systems, IBM India Software Labs – Pune), Dr. Sandeep Shukla (Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, I.I.T. Kanpur), Mr. Hemant Dusane & Mr. Vijay Bhalerao (Cyber Security & Information Security Consultants respectively at ISACA Pune ), Mr. Sunil Pawar (Senior Police Inspector, Cyber Crime Cell Pune) need a special mention.
A wonderful blend of major security aspects, this FDP promised an all-round, fulfilling learning experience for its participants.
