Jalandhar, March 24, 2019: EC-Council, the world's largest Certification Authority has recently certified 33 Computer Science Engineering students of Lovely Professional University (LPU) as ‘Certified Ethical Hackers’. According to Sr. Director Steven Graham at EC-Council, the average starting salary for a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) is 95,000 US Dollars (approx. Rs 66 Lakh) per annum.

All the 33 students of LPU are pursuing Computer Science Engineering (CSE) Programme at the university. A students’ club by the name of ‘Cyber-Hack’ is also running at the campus under the guidance of LPU’s one of the Centres for Professional Enhancement.

Head of the Centre at LPU, Prof Ankur Sodhi informs: “In the present era, certified professionals are in high demand. To train students on these lines, our ‘Cyber-Hack’ club at LPU focuses on cybersecurity learning and issues faced by the society in this specific field. For such issues on a large scale, certified ethical hackers are employed by top organizations to penetrate networks and computer systems with the purpose of finding and fixing security weaknesses. In fact, ethical hackers never violate computer security for personal gains, such as stealing credit card numbers or harvesting any personal data.”

Some of these certified CSE students, Divjyot Singh, Bonic Sandeep, MV Sreenivasulu, U K Dabbeta, Mohit Balu, Vosuri Vamsi, shared: “We are very fortunate to join LPU as a curriculum to be followed here is as per the latest trends and aspirations of the industry and the society.  With this certification, our parents and we too are feeling very secure about our glorious career ahead. We know well that there are incapable individuals to fill ‘Cyber Security Jobs’ currently, and in the years to come.”

Informing about their assignments, LPU students further told: “As ‘certified ethical hackers’ we also use the same methods as criminal hackers do to find weak spots in any of the company's computer system. However, instead of making any personal gains, we correct the weaknesses as well as work to protect the existing system to prevent an external security breach. We all want to be on the foot-prints of India’s renowned ethical hackers Ankit Fadia and Rahul Tyagi, where the latter is an LPU alumnus.
