I think it will helpful if you learn cloud technology

@aanya and @Aparna There are plenty of courses available. The hot topic these days are machine learning and cloud computing. You could check out certification courses available online. If cloud computing is what you choose, you might want to start with https://aws.amazon.com/certification/ because it's got plenty of help available both on YouTube and various websites. 

If programming is what you want to do - go with a certification program in Java or .Net. Those will be very useful.

For many, programming isn't an option. They could choose to get into Software QA (testing) and take the ISTQB certification. You should be able to find information about these programs online by simply searching for <xyz> certification on Google.

I hope this helps. If you want any more information, ask it below.

Hi Aanya,

In general , people consider "Ethical Hacking" as "Cyber security". However it is much more than that.

It has many components such as Vulnerability Assessment, Pentesting, Auditing, Digital forensics, Disaster Recovery Management, Cyber regulations and laws etc..

THere are many certifications that one  can opt for, such as,

CEH : Certified Ethical Hacker

LPT : License Pnetration Tester

CCNA Security 

CHFI : Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator

comptia security+

CISA : Certified Information Systems Auditor

CISSP : Certified Information System Security Professional

Also there are many Global Information Assurance Certifications 

QSA : Qualified Security Accessor (PCI DSS) for Banking, Financial institutions.

In addition you may go for Cyber Law, however for that you need to have LLB degree to practice Cyber law (Diploma in Cyber Law) will not help much.


FOr every certifications you have different pre-requisite such number of years of experience before you take the exam.

I would suggest to go for CEH , if you are keen in technical stuff.

However it is better if you have some basic understanding how networks. May be Sys-admin job experience will help here.


Do let me know in case  of any queries.
