Cyber security has always been an interesting subject for me where a student needs to solve digital crimes by recovering data and investigating. I strongly feel that this program fulfills the need of the present scenario wherein the world is changing very fast due to information security. By pursuing my skills further in the path of security, I would like to explore new methods to combine and fortify the use of technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence to develop more robust cybersecurity measures in the future. Cybersecurity has become a key strategic priority for digital business, with the increasing use of digital technologies. In the modern era, Computer has been an important part of life and it is difficult to imagine life without a Computer and the Internet. The growing connectivity of everything comes with greater challenges on the level of security, compliance, and data protection.
I have always been very curious and eager to learn new things. I have been an academically promising and inquisitive student. I stood school first with a 9.8 GPA and secured Distinction in the 12th Board exams with 95.6%. After finishing school, I joined GMR Institute of Technology, which is one of the best Autonomous Engineering colleges in India to pursue Computer Science and Engineering. I hold a good academic record with an 8.04 CGPA on 10 pt scale.
In addition to my fondness for Cyber Security, I attended a workshop on “Cyber Security” at NIT Warangal where I learned about the basics of Hacking, Penetration testing tools, and Secure Programming. Also, I have done a few Certifications from Cybrary in “Penetrating Testing & Ethical Hacking” and “Metasploit”. I have given a presentation on “Ethical Hacking” at GITAM University National Tech Fest, ISQUARER-2K17.
After completing my graduation, I started working with Cognizant Technology Solutions, India, where I worked on Documentum D2 (Enterprise Content Management) Java Application. My role required me to develop a web application to store valuable content from all over the enterprise in a safe and secure place between the Novartis International AG Group’s client and their customers. Being well-equipped with Programming knowledge and good interpersonal skills, I often took the responsibility to develop new modules for the security aspects of the project. Apart from the key responsibilities, I took part in various cultural and people development activities at both project and organizational levels. I look forward to pursuing my master's in Cyber Security abroad.
After deciding on my course “Masters in Cyber Security”, I started doing ample research on various options available abroad. During my research, I found that the UK universities best meets my requirement. The course module offered at the esteemed university is excellent and in line with the industry requirements as it covers the core concepts of Cyber Security. I found that UK universities provide impressive education structures, classrooms reflect cultural diversity, and comprise supportive academic systems and faculty that foster a great learning environment for international students. UK Education System has an excellent reputation and practical-based learning that is missing in my home country. Being one of the most progressive nations of the world, it is laden with the best opportunities and the best companies. I found that your esteemed university has an excellent faculty, flexible course structure, world-class amenities, and most importantly a friendly atmosphere for foreign students. I am confident that studying at your esteemed institution will empower me with sound knowledge of the basic cyber security principles and practical exposure to this field will be of great help in near future. This course will give me a strong grounding and a perfect channel to one of the Best Information Security Certification CISSP (Certified Information System Security Professional). Studying cryptography and advanced cryptography with the option to choose machine learning as an elective really intrigues me as these methodologies could easily be intertwined to develop new measures. I genuinely believe that the Master’s program in Cyber Security offered at your esteemed university will help me to hone my technical and management skills and drive confidence to approach any constraints in managing technical convolutions in any organization.
A post-graduation program from your university in the UK, coupled with my work experience and education so far, is bound to give me the right leverage. I am confident that if given a chance to pursue my graduation at your esteemed university, I will leave no stone unturned in maintaining the high standards of the university. I strongly feel that studying in the UK will be a turning point for me as it will help me shape my career effectively and efficiently.
