The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office presents an outstanding opportunity to study Cyber Security and Policy issues in the UK - Chevening Cyber Security Fellowship Programme 2017
The Chevening Cyber Security Fellowship is aimed at mid-career Indian professionals with demonstrable leadership potential in the field of cyber security or cyber policy in India. Six fellows are sent every year to the UK and we have run this programme since 2014. The course is a 12 week fully funded residential programme delivered at Cranfield University at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom that provides higher education for personnel in the British Armed Forces, Civil Service, other government departments and service personnel from other nations.
We draw scholars from the Government of India, the Indian Police Service, academia, the legal profession, entrepreneurs and industry. The course enables a small yet significant group of Indian Cyber experts to get professional training on the subject enabling them to come up to speed with the best British practices. This goes a long way in contributing to developing mutual understanding between the two countries in mitigating Cyber Security threat and defence cooperation.
Chevening Cyber security fellows have already demonstrated their undeterred commitment to contributing in their own ways by spreading awareness and influencing cyber security sphere in a positive direction. They have organised workshops, outreach events, published research papers, authored publications, influenced policies/ policy makers, mitigated threats, represented India at global forums, brought social change and contributed to addressing the concerns cyber security threat poses to India and the world.
